Posted on September 20th, 2010 at 3:46 pm

Paris Hilton's legal troubles have followed her across the Pacific Ocean. The heiress is currently being detained by Japanese immigration officials at Tokyo's Narita Airport.

Paris and younger sister, Nicky Hilton, are in Asia on business, but officials are concerned with the older sister's criminal history. On Monday, Hilton pleaded guilty to a drug possession charge in connection with an August arrest in Las Vegas

Hilton was also arrested earlier this summer in South Africa for marijuana possession - although those charges were eventually dropped.

"Paris was contractually bound to her business trip and didn't want to let down her brands and many Asian fans," her rep said. "She intended on fulfilling her contract and is trying hard to do the responsible thing, but this is beyond her control. She is very disappointed by tonight's events."

Paris is currently staying at an airport hotel while immigration officials decide her fate.
