Paris prefers In-N-Out over Carl’s Jr.

Paris_8 A curious side note in the Paris Hilton DUI saga is her claim that she was heading, at the time she was stopped, to In-N-Out Burger, apparently to soothe the effects of the (reportedly) single cocktail she’d consumed on an empty stomach. Carl’s Jr., the fast-food chain that paid Paris an arm and a leg to endorse its own $6 burger in the infamous car-wash commercial, can’t be happy about that. Another party that may feel aggrieved here: Bentley, the venerable automaker, which enjoyed some exposure as the object of Paris’s lathering attentions in the Carl’s Jr. spot. Paris was apparently driving her Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren when she was busted.
