Shortly after news broke that Paris Hilton’s brother Conrad was purportedly arrested last July following an in-flight meltdown — during which he threatened flight attendants — it has since been reported the 20-year-old checked into rehab.
Sources close to the hotel heir claim he voluntarily checked himself into a 30-day inpatient drug and alcohol treatment program “immediately following” the incident.

Legal paperwork related to the incident revealed Conrad’s lawyer, Robert Shapiro — the same man who famously defended OJ Simpson — claimed his client took a sleeping pill prior to boarding the British Airways flight, explaining his “violent outburst” could be one of many negative side effects associated with the drug.
According to ‘TMZ,’ Rick and Kathy Hilton’s youngest child appeared at a court hearing on Tuesday, Feb. 3, after surrendering himself to authorities.
He was ordered to hand over his passport and remain in California before being released on $100,000 bail.
