Police say they got a call warning of a possible drunk driver. When Nye County Sheriff’s deputies pulled the car over, they discovered it was being driven by none other than Heidi Fleiss. Cops say during the traffic stop they found prescription narcotics for which Fleiss was unable to produce a valid prescription.
Fleiss, 42, and a passenger in the car, John Owen, were found to be under the influence of a controlled substance, the sheriff’s office said. Fleiss was arrested on four counts, including possession of dangerous drugs without a prescription and driving under the influence. Owen, 53, was arrested on charges of being under the influence of a controlled substance and possession of marijuana.
Neither Fleiss nor Owen had any comment on the arrest and it is unknown whether or not they have legal representation. Owens is an unknown and attempts to reach him have gone unanswered.
If you are arrested on Long Island and charged with these offenses and don’t have the services of a Long Island Criminal Lawyer, you run the risk of incurring severe penalties. Without professional representation you will not be aware of your rights and may suffer needlessly.
Fleiss lives west of Las Vegas and has been involved in the ownership of a laundry business in Nye County. She, of course, was the LA madam of ill repute.
