Paris Hilton’s brother, Conrad Hilton, surrendered to the FBI after being charged with assaulting and harassing the flight crew of a British Airways flight from London to LAX on July of last year. According to reports, Conrad’s hostile behavior disrupted the 10-hour flight and interfered with the performance of the flight crew’s duties. Conrad Hilton is scheduled to appear in court on Tuesday to face the charge. If Conrad is found guilty, he is expected to serve up to 20 years in federal prison.
According to an affidavit from the FBI, Conrad Hilton threatened to kill and bury the flight crew. His behavior led to some passengers, especially the children, being terrified. The document says that Paris Hilton’s brother was angry over a recent break-up, which led to his aggressive behavior. The flight crew said that Conrad was constantly hurling expletives throughout the flight. They have also said that the socialite is now banned from the airline.
Conrad was heard screaming things like “If you wanna square up to me bro, then bring it and I will f*cking fight you”, and “I will f*cking own anyone on this flight; they are f*cking peasants”.
At one point, witnesses saw Conrad punching the bulkhead of the plane 10 cm from a flight attendant’s face. It is also believed that Conrad smoked marijuana during the flight, as the smell of weed was seeping out of the bathroom.
At a certain point during the flight, Conrad fell asleep and the captain saw this as a chance to restrain him. He was eventually cuffed to his seat for the duration of the flight.
Witnesses said that Conrad grabbed a flight attendant’s shirt and said, “I could get you all fired in 5 minutes. I know your boss! My father will pay this out. He has done it before. Dad paid $300k last time.”
TMZ spoke with Robert Shapiro, the Hilton family lawyer. According to Shapiro, Conrad took a sleeping pill before the flight and that the adverse reaction to the medication resulted in his aggressive behavior.
It was estimated that Hilton got out of his seat around 20 times during the flight, including an incident at takeoff when he was asked to sit down and buckle up. Several members of the 20-man flight crew testified that they tried to restrain Hilton and calm him down, but to no avail.
Paris Hilton and the rest of the Hilton family have remained silent about the incident.
