After turning herself over to the authorities the blonde beauty is behind bars at a county jail in Lynwood. Los Angeles County sheriff's spokesman Steve Whitmore says the heiress has been "cooperative and calm" since her arrival reports TMZ.

The spokesman added, "She'll be fine ... if she follows the rules."

At the start of the Movie Awards. Host Sarah Silverman took some shots at the heiress in her opening monologue. When she announced to the audience, "In a couple of days, Paris Hilton is going to jail," the crowd roared with approval.
"The judge says that it's going to be a no-frills thing and that is ridiculous. She is totally going to get special treatment," Silverman said.
"As a matter of fact, I heard that to make her feel more comfortable in prison, the guards are going to paint the bars to look like penises. I think it's wrong, too. I just worry that she's going to break her teeth on those things."
The camera panned to Hilton, who was sitting in the audience and looked like she was going to cry.
The comedian made an apologetic face. "Oh sweetie," Silverman said, trailing off.
Then, as the crowd's applause grew even louder, Silverman shrugged and asked, "Wow, why do I feel dirty?"
