Conrad Hughes Hilton is charged with a misdemeanor count of assaulting the flight crew and interfering with their ability to perform their duties, according to a U.S. District Court federal criminal complaint. (Warning: Document contains objectionable language.) His sentencing is set for July 10.
Hilton was aboard Flight 269 on July 31 from London to Los Angeles and immediately became disruptive. His behavior frightened passengers and made children cry, according to the complaint.
He allegedly threatened to kill flight crew members and threw a fist in the direction of a flight attendant.
He reportedly grabbed a flight attendant's shirt and said, "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."
Hilton called the flight crew peasants and said he would own anyone on the flight, according to the complaint.
He allegedly yelled profanities, spoke loudly and was argumentative, according to the criminal complaint.
The crew believed he was under the influence of drugs because he was behaving in an erratic manner and spoke quickly, saying "If you wanna square up to me bro, then bring it on and I will [expletive] fight you," the complaint said.
While he was sleeping, flight crew members restrained him.
He continued to scream obscenities and was monitored until police boarded the plane, according to the complaint.
Hilton later told investigators in an interview that he intimidated the flight crew members because he was defending himself.
