Washington: It is believed that Paris Hilton was carrying the same purse on her arrest night that she showed on Twitter.

About a month and a half ago, the hotel heiress couldn`t help but brag about her sparkly new designer handbag on the social networking site, reports People mag.

"Love My New Chanel Purse I got Today. :)," she wrote on her Twitter page under a photo of the purse.

A photo of the heiress during the traffic stop just prior to her arrest last weekend in Las Vegas shows Hilton clutching a black Chanel purse that looks very similar to the one she swooned over on Twitter.

When a small baggie of cocaine allegedly fell out of her purse, she told police that she borrowed the purse from a friend.
