Conrad Hilton, son of Kathy Hilton, brother of Paris and Nicky, and nephew of Kyle and Kim Richards, is the practically invisible branch of the Richards family tree. The Richards family dynamics are often the topic of proud discussion on “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.” While Paris and Nicky are frequently bantered about, and have even make appearances on the Bravo show, Conrad has remained the unmentioned, naughty little brother.
The latest Hilton home-front news is that Conrad is now facing a bad boy felony charge and an arrest warrant, for a high speed chase which he initiated with the California Highway Patrol, last summer.
Hilton has been charged with reckless evading of an officer, for a careening car chase that went down last August near Palm Springs, according to court docs, filed by the Riverside County D.A. Police assert that the then 20 year old was recklessly weaving his BMW in and out of freeway traffic, and dangerously driving up on the shoulder.
He was initially clocked at 90 mph, but was accused of hitting the gas, topping 100 mph, in an attempt to outrun the officer. The episode ended when Hilton clipped an 18-wheeler, and drove off the highway. Amazingly, Hilton was the only one injured, walking away from the incident with only a fractured hand. He faces a possible three year prison sentence. How will the likely entitled black sheep of the Hilton clan come out of this one?
