Just after midnight Wednesday, beyond the view of paparazzi lenses, Paris Hilton left jail fitted with a new piece of bling.
Citing privacy concerns, officials would not say why she was released.
"Medical situation played a part" said the Sherrif.
But the pampered heiress will be confined to her home to serve the remainder up her sentence now bumped back up to the orginal 45 day sentence minus time served.
At her last hurrah Sunday night, the ultimate party girl said she was preparing to take prison seriously .
"I want to be treated like everyone else, if i'm going to do the time, I'm going to do it the right way" said Hilton.
But it doesn't seem she was treated like everyone else and many want to know how and why her celebrity status afforded her special treatment.
The infamous socialite pleaded no contest to reckless driving in January and was given 36 months probation. When she was caught in early May driving with a suspended license, the judge sent her to jail.
And even though the Hilton digs will be a lot more luxurious, the heiress is not home free. If she violates the house arrest, her sentence is doubled and she'l head back behind bars.
