Paris Hilton’s Brother Calls Passenger ‘Peasants’ Aboard British Airways
Conrad Hilton, paris Hilton’s brother, did not enter a plea to a charge of interfering with a flight crew for reportedly calling passengers peasants and scaring children with death threats expressed in profane language.
He was released on a $100,000 unsecured bond pending trial on March 5. He will be serving 20 years in jail if found guilty of the charge.
The court also ruled for Conrad to continue undergoing mental health treatment, the Mail Online reported. Conrad began his insults of other passengers in just few minutes that Flight 269 departs and was unstoppable for the entire 10 ½ hour flight, according to a 17-page affidavit of FBI David gates obtained by Mail Online. He had also acted deaf when told to fasten his seat belt and walked to and fro in the whole duration of the flight.
Flight attendants tried to have him returned to his seat but he grew mad, threatening to kill the plane’s crew or have them fired from their jobs.
“I could get you all fired in five minutes. My father will pay this out, he has done it before. Dad paid $300,000 last time,” Conrad’s one outburst went as stated in the affidavit.
One of the crew who looked after Conrad said he was threatened by Conrad’s actuations but felt sincerely that the man had no intentions of hurting anyone. The co-pilot had also observed that Conrad seemed to be oddly clumsy and obviously not in his usual self.
Conrad fell asleep and was successfully handcuffed up until the plane landed in Los Angeles. When Conrad woke up, he was noticeably clamed. As it turned out, he had taken a sleeping pill before boarding.
Defense lawyer Robert Shapiro said that Conrad’s odd behavior may have been caused by the sleeping pill or something else. He said he had just gotten hold of the affidavit and he needs to review it before making an official statement.
