Paris Hilton's flight evacuated after knife found on board

Travel safety waits for no celeb: Paris Hilton was among the passengers asked to deplane from a Delta flight headed to Maui from Los Angeles on Tuesday after a small knife was found on board.

The cutlery was described by a Delta spokesperson as a “small catering knife,” the kind of utensil the flight crew uses "for normal things." The spokesperson told CNN that the knife was left behind and then discovered, and in order to be cautious, the crew asked passengers to evacuate the aircraft so that they could do a security sweep.

A rep for the reality TV star tells CNN that “Paris is safe and well," adding, "It was a very frightening situation that a knife got on a plane, but thankfully no one was harmed.”

The Delta spokesperson said that passengers have since re-boarded and the flight was scheduled for take off.

    I missed the importance of the story..actually, why is Paris Hilton relevant here anyway. She was on a plane and they had to deplane due to security measures. It happened to me once, i wished there was an article about it:

    I love the clowns that defend celebrities like Paris that are always in trouble with the law. "Remember, they are people too". Yeah right. Paris is an egotistical biatch that couldn't care less about the average citizen. We are peons to people like Paris. Wake up!! For the one blogger above stated that this isn't real word..."Whatever"

    How tramatic! If she was all railed up, it probably caused her to crap her pants. I wonder if she smuggles her drugs across the Pacific or has contacts in Maui. Guessing she will just get loaded in Wailea and maybe hit the Tiki bar in Kihei. Have fun Paris. Keep on "blowin" that family fortune. Booze it up!

    Don't get it-everyone says they don't like her and this story is crap news. Yet everyone, rather than ignore the story, feel the need to voice their dislike for her. They say that people show their affection and love through hostility. Hey she knows how to market herself and keep herself talked about–all these comments is what keeps her in the news.
