Schubert (far r.) offered Paris Hilton a plea deal, which she accepted in court on Sept. 20
LOS ANGELES Karma is brutal.
The Vegas prosecutor who took Paris Hilton and Grammy winner Bruno Mars to task for cocaine possession was busted Saturday on charges of buying crack from a street dealer near the strip.
David Schubert, 47, was pulled over around 5 p.m. and swallowed a crack rock as an undercover cop closed in, Clark County District Attorney David Roger told The News.
A second rock was recovered from his car, Roger said.
The street dealer arrested at the scene later told cops Schubert was a regular customer who started buying six or seven months ago and used him to score three to four times a week, a police report obtained by TMZ.com said.
"It's disheartening. Obviously I don't expect any of our prosecutors to be using drugs, but I was especially shocked he was buying crack cocaine to smoke it," Roger told The News.
"I placed a great deal of trust in him, assigning him to a state and federal drug task force," Roger said. "I have zero tolerance. We're moving forward with his termination."
Authorities got search warrants to test Schubert's blood and search his two residences. The Nevada Attorney General is expected to get the case in a matter of days, Roger said.
Hilton, the hotel heiress and celebrity socialite, was charged with felony drug possession last August after Vegas cops found less than a gram of cocaine in her Chanel purse following a traffic stop.
She copped to two misdemeanors and received the maximum punishment - a year of probation.
"The Clark County Detention Center is not the Waldorf-Astoria," a judge told Hilton as Schubert looked on in court. "Treat this very seriously."
Mars, 25, pleaded guilty to felony drug possession in February after cops busted him with 2.6 grams at the Hard Rock Hotel Casino in September.
Because he was a first-time offender, Mars will get the felony rap scrubbed from his record if he keeps his nose clean.
"I was saddened to hear that - if the allegations are true - that another person has been affected by the disease of drug usage," attorney David Chesnoff, who repped both Hilton and Mars, told The News. "I wish him the best
