Socialite Paris Hilton is at the centre of a Maryland police investigation after information leaked to the authorities claims she has allegedly offered teenagers drugs and alcohol.
Baltimore Police officials have confirmed they're taking the reports very seriously, adding Hilton could face a hefty fine and jail time if she's found guilty.
The allegations stem from an episode of reality show The Simple Life: INTERNS, when Hilton reportedly offered teens marijuana and bourbon to "loosen them up" for a taped segment.
One of the teens involved has told police, "She loaded myself and two other underage kids on shots of Jack Daniels to loosen us up for the show."
Baltimore Police Detective CHRIS SCHAEFFER tells US tabloid the National Enquirer, "These are serious allegations. We will certainly be investigating them."
A spokesman for 20th Century Fox - the company behind The Simple Life - insists the allegations are false: "Paris would never endanger the welfare of a minor."
