arrested on DUI charges
Paris Hilton's brother, Barron
Hilton, has been arrested Tuesday morning on suspicion driving
under the influence.
line with the example set by Paris for the new generation of
Hiltons, her 18-year-old brother Barron Hilton was arrested on
Tuesday morning on suspicion of DUI, after he was pulled over on
Pacific Coast Highway by a Los Angeles County Sheriff's deputy.
According to the police, Barron Hilton blew 0.14 percent
blood-alcohol reading, with the state legal limit set at 0.08
percent. Barron Hilton was booked at the Lost Hills Station,
where he was checked in at 8:35 a.m., held on $5,000 bond.
According to the latest reports, the
call to the local police came from a concerned driver, who
spotted the young Hilton weaving on the road in his Mercedes.
The unnamed driver followed Barron Hilton until the 18-year-old
stopped at a gas station, where the police made the arrest,
after Barron Hilton failed the field sobriety test. A female
passenger was with Hilton at the time of his arrest, but no
further information has been made available.
Apparently his family has not been
officially notified by the police yet. "I haven't been
contacted yet by either my son or the police. If what I have
heard is true, it is very disturbing and I will have a lot to
say—but it will be to my son, not the media," his father
Rick Hilton said in a statement.
