TMZ has a video of Paris Hilton being driven to the Men’s Central Jail in downtown Los Angeles where she surrendered to authorities shortly after 10:00 p.m.:

The Sheriff devised the plan of surrendering miles away from the actual where Paris will be doing time because the crush of paparazzi at the jail created a potential safety hazard. Paris was then driven to the jail in Lynwood where she is now serving her sentence. Earlier in the evening, Hilton left her house for the MTV Music Awards. After appearing on the red carpet, Hilton went to her parents’ house for a brief time, then left with her lawyer to face the music.”

Although authorities had originally handpicked Paris’ cellmate, the possibly insane Kelly Matthew, law enforcement officials are now saying that Paris will spend 23 hours a day in solitary confinement, leaving her 1 hour a day outside her cell. That’s cool. My team of ninjas only need about five minutes depending on traffic.
