Their storyline on The Hills might be a little dry, but the real background of reality star Spencer Pratt and his sister Stephanie is way juicy. Today, our brother site Gawker reports that Spencer may have hired a "tutor" to write his college essays while he smoked dope and popped Xanax. Now Star is reporting that Stephanie — the "She Pratt" we were introduced to on last night's episode — has a criminal background. (That's her mugshot there on the left.) It seems that in May 2006, Stephanie — then 20 — was arrested in Hawaii with a friend, who happens to be the daughter of a production exec of the ABC series Lost. The girls had shoplifted more than $1,300 worth of clothing from Neiman Marcus. They were charged with second-degree theft and taken to police headquarters, where they both said they were on prescription medication. After searching the girls' bags, the cops found some really fun stuff.
Drugs! Apparently really bad ones in Stephanie's bag, too. She was charged with "promoting a dangerous drug" in the third degree, and "promoting a harmful drug" in the third and fourth degree. We looked into what these terms mean in Hawaii. "Dangerous drugs" are classified as those that can cause the most bodily damage to a person and include "such drugs as morphine and heroin." Furthermore:
a person commits the offense of promoting a dangerous drug in the third degree if the person 'knowingly' possesses any dangerous drug in any amount. The offense is a class C felony.
And according to Hawaiian law, "harmful" drugs "include marijuana concentrates, but not marijuana." So basically that means hash. Stephanie's friend — who received one drug-related charge — started mouthing off to the cops saying that she'd "be out of this mess and then fly to Paris." She then said, "If I leave the state, then f—k you guys and your charges! You can't do anything to me once I'm not here!"
