Paris Hilton's ex takes DUI plea deal in Vegas

LAS VEGAS (AP) - August 24, 2011

/*Cy Waits*/ was sentenced after pleading no contest to misdemeanor driving under the influence of drugs. He emerged from a courtroom Wednesday saying he's glad to have the case behind him.

The 35-year-old former Las Vegas nightclub manager also declared his relationship with Hilton a "closed" chapter in his life.

Felony and misdemeanor drug charges were dropped.

Waits was arrested after a police officer reported a "vapor trail" of marijuana smoke wafting from a black Cadillac Escalade in August 2010.

Hilton was a passenger. She's on probation after pleading guilty last September to misdemeanor cocaine possession and obstruction charges.
