Barron Hilton Hit With $4.9M Judgment in DUI Case

by at . Comments

Paris Hilton's younger brother Barron just got shellacked in court, with a judge ordering him to pay nearly $5 million for hitting a guy with his car.

Barron Hilton was sued by Fernando Tellez, who was working at a gas station on Pacific Coast Highway when Barron, then 18, rolled up in 2008.

Hilton was drunk. And allegedly hit Tellez with his Mercedes.

Tellez's attorney claims he suffered "permanent disability" and has been forced to "undergo multiple surgeries and medical procedures" since.

Barron Hilton was arrested on suspicion of DUI at 8:30 a.m. (!!) that day after blowing a .14. Paris' bro later pleaded no contest to the charge.

Now, an L.A. County Superior Court jury has ordered Hilton to fork over $4.9 million in damages, which he disputes, saying he never hit Tellez.

"We disagree with the jury. Barron did not strike the attendant," says a Hilton source. "Barron knows he did wrong. It happened 3 years ago."

"He's been incredibly responsible ever since."
