Paris Hilton starts serving time in low-budget jail

As detailed in this AP story, "Paris Hilton checked into a Los Angeles County jail to begin a three-week stay for violating her probation in an alcohol-related reckless driving case."  Here are more notable details about her incarceration:

Hilton will be housed in the "special needs" unit of the 13-year-old jail, separate from most of its 2,200 inmates.  The unit contains 12 two-person cells reserved for police officers, public officials, celebrities and other high-profile inmates....

"I did have a choice to go to a pay jail," Hilton said Sunday, without giving details.  "But I declined because I feel like the media portrays me in a way that I'm not and that's why I wanted to go to county, to show that I can do it and I'm going to be treated like everyone else.  I'm going to do the time, I'm going to do it the right way."
