“I will fucking own anyone on this flight; they are peasants”
Paris Hilton’s brother, Conrad Hilton III was arrested after causing a troubling fracas on board a transatlantic flight from London to LA last July
Fellow passenger, Patricia Mitchell, has said that the famous heir to the Hilton Hotel chain had smoked weed in the plane toilet and had threatened the flight staff.
Last week, the 21-year-old agreed to a plea bargain with prosecutors, commuting the charge to the lesser “assault”.
Conrad Hilton is expected back in court for sentencing next Thursday.
International flights are well known for being terrible experiences, but it’s difficult to imagine having to spend 10 awkward hours stuck in a tiny plane with a spoilt rich brat, throwing his toys out of the cot, like when Conrad Hilton went on a drug-fuelled meltdown.
But that’s exactly what happened to Patricia Mitchell, a British-born life coach when she had the unfortunate experience of flying from London to LA on a British Airways flight with Paris Hilton’s brother and heir to the Hilton Hotel empire, Conrad Hughes III.
Conrad Hilton was arrested for his troubling outburst shortly after landing. He had smoked weed in the plane toilet on the 31st of July, had tried to punch fellow passengers and had threatened to “fucking kill” several of the on-board flight staff.
Hilton celebrated his 21st birthday on Tuesday. Meanwhile, men’s style magazine, GQ, published Mitchell’s version of the story of the flight from hell. The flight ended with Paris Hilton’s brother, Conrad, being whisked off the plane while wearing handcuffs.
“Stop following me! I am going to fucking kill you! I will fucking own you!”
According to the FBI agent who was on the case, in a sworn affidavit, Conrad Hilton initially began causing trouble when he refused to switch off his mobile phone during take off.
Shortly afterwards, when the seatbelt light came on, Conrad Hilton got out of his seat in business class and began wandering around the aircraft.
Mitchell was on the lower deck of the plane when Conrad Hilton appeared. Hilton described first seeing him.
‘It was during that bit when the stewards are up but nobody else should be. My ears were popping, and I was waiting for the drinks trolley, when suddenly, he’s coming down the aisle. I thought, “Whoa, that’s not normal.”
‘He was dressed posh casual, expensive haircut. He looked like a polo player and walked with a sure-footed march, being loud… I heard a lot of “fucks.”
Later, once crew had requested that Conrad Hilton return to her seat, Hilton ‘threatens to hit someone seated four rows behind him.’
Mitchell added that she felt as if Paris Hilton’s brother, Conrad Hilton, was in the midst of a psychotic breakdown.
For the following hours, Hilton wandered around the plane, pacing up and down the aisles, swearing and threatening the flight staff.
Conrad Hilton eventually approached a member of the British Airways flight crew to lay a complaint about a particular passenger who he felt was giving him the “stink eye”. At this point, Mitchell says she considered filming the incident on her mobile phone, but that a vicious look from Conrad Hughes Hilton III froze her in her tracks.
‘He looked at me, really threatening. I don’t often watch horror movies, but you know how the walking dead have a look in their eye? I thought, “He’s going to come at me next.” He turned around and said, “Now everybody’s judging me.”‘
Eventually the flight crew closed the curtains.
As Hilton paced around the aircraft, he lashed out at a customer service manager that was following him, in an effort to protect other passengers and crew.
‘”Stop following me!” Hilton screamed, adding: “I am going to fucking kill you!”‘
He is also said to have yelled, ‘I will fucking own you!’
After Hilton returned to business class, Mitchell said he began hitting the bulkhead of the plane, just centimetres away from the head of one of the British Airways flight crew.
Conrad Hilton’s drug-fuelled meltdown continued with him yelling to everyone, “I will fucking own anyone on this flight. They are fucking peasants”.
Paris Hilton’s brother is then said to have told other passengers that he is banned from various other airlines, that he had just broken up with his girlfriend and that his disgusting behaviour would result in a lawsuit for his father to pay.
He then mentioned that he wanted to smoke some marijuana, at which point he locked himself in one of the toilets on the flight.
A distinct smell of weed.
A distinct smell of weed began wafting through the plane. He then left the lower cabin and returned to the upper deck where he began smoking a cigarette.
He then fell asleep for about an hour. When he woke up he approached yet another member of British Airways staff on board the flight and said that he was going to “fucking kill him” three times.
“I could get you all fired in five minutes. I know your boss! My father will pay this out, he has done it before. Dad paid $300,000 last time.”
He grabbed the crew member by his shirt and said, “I could get you all fired in five minutes. I know your boss!” He added, “My father will pay this out, he has done it before. Dad paid $300,000 last time”.
Hilariously, he then offered to fight the co-pilot.
After various other flare-ups, the co-pilot left the flight deck to give Conrad Hilton his final written warning. The Hilton Hotel heir ripped it up.
At some point around 02:20 am, London time, a second safety briefing is held on board the flight to discuss restraining Conrad Hilton, who had fallen asleep again.
He is handcuffed while sleeping. When he wakes up, he begins screaming.
‘A buzz went around the plane that he had been restrained and we were all, “Fantastic. Good. Happy about that,”‘ said Mitchell.
About an hour later the flight landed in Los Angeles and police boarded the flight to remove the handcuffed Conrad Hilton from the plane and escort him into the terminal.
‘I remember coming off and seeing him sitting on a bench with what I assume was some kind of federal agent. You would have thought butter wouldn’t melt in his mouth, he was so cool. He looked all innocent, like, “I don’t know what the fuss is all about,”‘
