Another hard-partying Hilton may be cruising closer to jail.
Paris Hilton’s 18-year-old brother was charged Thursday with four misdemeanor counts stemming from his Feb. 12 arrest on suspicion of drunken driving. Barron Nicholas Hilton’s charges include driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs and being an unlicensed driver.
Hilton was stopped Feb. 12 after a witness reported seeing a black Mercedes-Benz weaving on Pacific Coast Highway, the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department said. He was allegedly carrying a fake driver’s license.
Hilton was booked at the Malibu station and registered a blood-alcohol level of 0.14 percent — .08 is the rate at which a driver is legally intoxicated in California.
Hilton was freed on $20,000 bond and is scheduled to be arraigned April 14.
Last year Paris Hilton, the 26-year-old reality TV star and hotel heiress, pleaded no contest to alcohol-related reckless driving and was sentenced to 45 days in jail. She served a little more than two weeks.
