Great-Grandson of Conrad Hilton Pleads Not Guilty to Restraining Order Breach and Car Theft

The great-grandson of hotel magnate Conrad Hilton pleaded not guilty Thursday to charges that he took a Bentley belonging to his ex-girlfriend’s father and disobeyed a restraining order to stay away from her.   Conrad Hughes Hilton, 23, of Los Angeles was charged May 9 with one felony count of driving or taking a vehicle without consent, two misdemeanor counts of disobeying a domestic relations restraining order and one misdemeanor count of contempt of court.

His arraignment was postponed May 10 and he was allowed to be released from jail to his father so he could be transported to the Menninger Clinic — a psychiatric treatment center in Houston.

“He successfully completed his treatment,” Hilton’s attorney, Robert Shapiro, told reporters outside court, noting that his client “has been given medication that has been very, very effective.”

Socialite Paris Hilton’s younger brother is due back in a downtown Los Angeles courtroom Aug. 8, along with co-defendant William James Bell, 20, of Santa Monica, who is charged with one felony count of driving or taking a vehicle without consent. He pleaded not guilty at an earlier court appearance.

Hilton and Bell allegedly took a 2007 Bentley Continental from the home of Hilton’s ex-girlfriend’s father on May 6, then drove to another house looking for Hilton’s ex-girlfriend in violation of a restraining order against Hilton.

Hilton could face nearly four years in jail if convicted as charged, while Bell could face up to three years, according to the District Attorney’s Office.

Police initially received a radio call of a restraining order suspect in the 2300 block of Jupiter Drive. Officer Jenny Houser, an LAPD spokeswoman, said officers found Hilton inside the Bentley and determined that he was the subject of a restraining order.

Hilton was sentenced last June to two months behind bars after testing positive for drugs, violating the terms of his probation for a July 2014 meltdown on a British Airways flight from London to Los Angeles.

He had been sentenced to three years probation after pleading guilty in 2015 to a misdemeanor charge accusing him of assaulting two flight attendants aboard the flight.

Hilton was restrained and handcuffed by flight attendants on the transcontinental flight after an outburst in which he called fellow passengers “peasants” and accused the crew of “taking the peasants’ side,” according to court papers.

In a separate case last year, the Los Angeles resident pleaded guilty to evading arrest and was sentenced to 90 days in sheriff’s custody, with 89 days in a work release program.
