Paris Hilton will call in to Friday’s court hearing instead of appearing inperson. "She’s gonna be appearing by phone," Los Angeles Superior Court spokesman Allan Parachini said. The reason for the change was unclear.
Paris was ordered to report to court at 9 a.m. on Friday after the judge signed an order on Thursday for deputies to bring her in a sheriff’s vehicle from her Hollywood Hills home. Paris was reassigned from jail to house arrest Thursday but prosecutors sought to hold sheriff’s officials in contempt for releasing her early from jail.
