E! News has exclusively learned from multiple sources that Waits was fired from his position as head of nightclub operations for Wynn and Encore properties shortly after the couple's Las Vegas arrest. Waits was charged with driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol. Hilton was rung up on a cocaine-possession count.
Steve Wynn had just promoted Waits and twin brother Jesse to the high-profile gig Wednesday, but he was promptly dismissed just hours after being jailed.
"Wynn has a zero-tolerance policy with their club execs when it comes to brushes with the law," said one Las Vegas insider.
Reps for Waits and Wynn have not returned repeated calls seeking comment.
It's been a 180 for Waits, who earlier this week was being hailed for pulling a gun on a suspected knife-wielding intruder trying to break into Hilton's home.
