Conrad Hilton agrees to plead to assault on flight

2015-03-04 18:00

Los Angeles - Federal prosecutors in Los Angeles say Paris Hilton's brother Conrad has agreed to plead guilty to assaulting flight attendants on a trip from London last year.

The US attorney's office says Hilton signed the agreement on Tuesday. He's set to appear in court on Thursday but will officially plead guilty to the misdemeanour later.

The offence carries a maximum sentence of six months in jail, a year of probation and a $5 000 fine. It's unclear if Hilton and prosecutors reached an agreement on a sentence.

Charging documents say Hilton threatened to kill the flight attendants and his behaviour was so disruptive that children were crying.

The documents say Hilton was in a rage for most of the 10-hour flight because he was angry over breaking up with a girlfriend and wanted to smoke marijuana. publishes all comments posted on articles provided that they adhere to our Comments Policy.
