The apple doesn’t fall far from the irresponsible, law-breaking tree in the Hilton family.
A few months after Paris Hilton was popped for drunk driving, her 18-year-old brother Barron Hilton has been arrested for the same crime. He was pulled over for DUI in Malibu… at 8:30 a.m. today. He must have had a lot of mimosas!
Police told TMZ that Barron was driving a black Mercedes on Pacific Coast Highway with a passenger when he was pulled over at a 76 gas station. His blood-alcohol content was .14, twice the legal limit.
Moreover, Barron allegedly struck a garage worker at the gas station. Fernando Pellez was not seriously hurt when Barron’s black Mercedes bowled into him between 6:00 and 6:30 a.m., but he insisted on calling the cops.
“I was knocked to the ground,” Pellez said. “The Mercedes lost control as it was turning into the gas station and Barron got out of the car and he was totally drunk and couldn’t walk straight.”
The younger Hilton was booked at the Lost Hills Sheriff’s station, the same place Mel Gibson was taken. No cops were referred to as “sugar tits” this time, however.
