Conrad Hilton handed $5,000 fine and ordered to carry out community service after in-flight outburst

Hotel heir Conrad Hilton has been sentenced to three years probation after an outburst during a flight from London to Los Angeles.

Paris Hilton’s younger brother was also ordered to pay a $5,000 fine, undertake 750 hours of community service and have mental health and substance abuse treatment during a hearing yesterday.

The 21-year-old had earlier pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor count or simple assault, which stemmed from an incident on board a British Airways flight last July.

During his court appearance, the hotel heir – who reportedly branded other passengers “peasants” and threatened to kill air crew during an onboard rant – apologised for his conduct and vowed it wouldn’t happen again.

His lawyer Robert Shapiro previously said his actions were the result of an adverse reaction to a sleeping pill.

Court documents had shown drink services were delayed almost an hour due to Conrad’s outburst, while the plane’s captain ordered he be “restrained” to stop any further trouble

The files stated: “The captain authorised crew members to restrain him to his seat for the descent and he was ultimately handcuffed to his seat.”

Conrad’s sentencing came after he was placed under house arrest last month until his sentencing after breaking his $100,000 bail by failing a drugs test and smoking marijuana

Newly released court documents filed in California on 30 April state: “The conditions of defendant Conrad Hughes Hilton’s pretrial release in this matter are hereby amended to include a curfew restricting defendant Conrad Hughes Hilton to his residence every day from 10:00 p.m. to 5:00 a.m.

“All other pretrial conditions will remain in effect as previously ordered.”
