Los Angeles: Socialite Paris Hilton's younger brother Conrad Hilton has been charged with assaulting and intimidating several flight attendants aboard a British Airways flight from London to Los Angeles back in July. He surrendered to authorities on February 3, reported TMZ.
After the incident last summer, Conrad voluntarily checked into a 30-day inpatient drug and alcohol treatment program.
Conrad was ordered to surrender his passport and remain in California when he appeared in the court. He was released on a USD 100,000 bail. According to the site, witnesses said Conrad began screaming and threatening flight attendants during the flight.
Conrad allegedly punched the bulkhead of the plane 10 centimeters from a flight attendant's face. His behaviour was allegedly so disruptive that children on the plane were crying. When he fell asleep, he was ultimately handcuffed to his seat.
According to documents obtained by the site, Conrad admitted to consuming a sleeping pill before the flight. He said he "buried" the flight attendants. "I told all of them I could get all of their jobs taken away in less than 30 seconds," Conrad said in the documents.
