Hilton, 29, was escorted out of the Brazil vs Netherlands quarterfinal match at Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium, according to reports.

Her rep later said that the "incident was a complete misunderstanding and it was actually another person in the group who did it. The case has been dropped against Paris and no charges will be made. The authorities have apologized for wrongfully accusing her since she had nothing to do with the incident."

Despite the incident, Hilton seems to be in fine spirits.

"Had so much fun at the game today," she wrote. "What a match! I love South Africa!" A short time later, she added, "It's so beautiful here. I can't wait to go on the Safari this week and see all the amazing animals."

Hilton pleaded no contest in 2007 to alcohol-related reckless driving and was sentenced to 45 days in jail. She served 23 days in jail.

Later that year, during an interview with Larry King, she famously denied ever using drugs.

"Have you ever been addicted to drugs?" he asked.

"No," she replied.

She also said "no" when he asked if she's ever experimented with drugs.
