Paris Hilton’s younger brother Conrad has appeared in court after allegedly becoming enraged on a British Airways flight from London to Los Angeles, calling passengers “peasants” and making children cry.
Hilton, 20, had his hands and feet in shackles as he was brought into court in Los Angeles where he was charged with interfering with a flight crew. He did not enter a plea and was released on $100 000 (R1.14million) bail.
The case related to BA Flight 269 which took off from Heathrow airport on July 31 last year, but details only emerged as Hilton was charged.
According to a 17-page affidavit from an FBI agent, Hilton became unruly soon after the plane took off.
Witnesses said he was in a rage for much of the 11-hour flight, at one point yelling: “I will f****** own anyone on this flight. They are f****** peasants.”
According to a BA co-pilot, Hilton seemed uncoordinated and delusional. He eventually fell asleep and was handcuffed to his seat for the final 90 minutes of flight.
