Paris sent home after four days

Paris Hilton was fitted with an ankle bracelet and released to house arrest after serving the four-plus days in county that are more typical for her kind of offense. The sheriff's department says she was released for medical reasons, but wouldn't otherwise discuss her condition. She apparently has to wear the bracelet for forty days. TMZ

Add TMZ: Paris was on the verge of a nervous breakdown, crying all the time and not sleeping. [Maybe they sent her home to get a little peace in the jail?] Also, here's a look at her ankle bracelet.
