Paris Freed! She Leaves Lynwood at 12:15 A.M.

Paris Hilton is now a free woman.

She left the Lynwood jail at 12:15 a.m. Tuesday morning after finishing out her 23-day sentence, and she was met by her ecstatic parents Rick and Kathy.

Before she hopped into her parents' car, she hugged a few deputies and shook a few hands before flashing a huge smile and leaving jail.

Of course, no Paris outing is complete without the paparazzi, and she leaned out the window of the SUV and told them, "Thank you for your support!"

Paris is now in the Beverly Hills home of her parents, where she'll shed the orange jumpsuit she hated so much and eat a good meal. Law enforcement sources told TMZ.com that Paris will need it -- she reportedly dropped 10 pounds while in the pokey.
