Conrad Hilton is accepting responsibility for his headline-making plane meltdown in July 2014. Paris Hilton’s 20-year-old brother, who allegedly threatened to “f—king own anyone on this flight” while calling fellow passengers “peasants,” has pled guilty to one count of simple assault, GQ reports. According to the plea agreement obtained by GQ.com, he faces a maximum sentence of six months imprisonment followed by a year of supervised release and a fine of $5,000.
As previously reported, the hotel heir’s meltdown was so intense that he had to be handcuffed to his seat. TMZ claimed that Hilton yelled at passengers and flight attendants, shouting, “I am going to f—king kill you,” and “I will f—king rip through you.” He also allegedly threatened in-flight staff with: “I could get you all fired in five minutes. I know your boss! My father will pay this out. He has done it before. [My] dad paid $300,000 last time."
Following the not-so-smooth plane ride, Hilton’s lawyer Robert Shapiro told TMZ that Hilton had taken a sleeping pill which caused his unruly behavior.
After being arrested on Feb. 3 for the incident, Hilton voluntarily checked himself into a rehab facility.
