Prince Harry nude photos scandal: 'some people were snorting cocaine' - eyewitness

Turns out Prince Harry's Sin City shenanigans may have involved more than a rousing game of strip billiards.
According to RadarOnline, the rebellious royal's late-night partying in Las Vegas earlier this month was actually a little more serious than initially thought because, according to an eyewitness, hard drugs like cocaine were at play.
"Things got pretty crazy in Prince Harry's suite that night," the source told RadarOnline.com. "Everyone was drinking and drugs were also being used by some people."
The source claimed that "some people were snorting cocaine," but clarified that Prince Harry himself didn't appear to be using any illegal drugs at the party.
"Some were already rolling on shrooms when they arrived at the party, and some were just high on weed," the eyewitness continued. "And that's exactly why no one there has come forward on the record ... they don't want to be implicated for any illegal activities."
Earlier this week, a source told Las Vegas Review-Journal gossip columnist Norm Clarke that the naked photos of Prince Harry that had surfaced following his wild night were just the tip of the iceberg.
"Something pretty gigantic" would emerge from the scandal, the source said, something bigger than Harry's game of "strip billards."
The source failed to specify what exactly the bigger issue might be.
Steve Wynn, the billionaire owner of the Wynn Las Vegas, where Harry and his pals partied, is reportedly upset with his security staff over the leaked images, but is denying allegations that he picked up the tab on Harry's nearly $80,000 stay.
"That's factually incorrect," Wynn spokesman Michael Weaver told Clarke of the rumors that Wynn comped the 27-year-old prince's stay.
Meanwhile, sources at the Palace are standing by Harry amid the increasingly damning reports.
"He didn't do anything unlawful," a Palace source told People magazine. "What he did was entirely his own business."
Added Dai Davies, the former head of royal protection services: "Harry is a big boy now. He knows the rules, but he thinks, I'm going to do whatever I want."
