Paris Hilton’s younger brother Barron Hilton was arrested back in 2008 when he was caught driving whilst under the influence of drugs and alcohol.
He had been involved in a collision earlier in the day and then struck a petrol station attendant whilst in the petrol station.
Courts have now ordered him to pay $4.9 million in compensation, the money is thought to be for the pain, suffering, medical expenses and loss of earnings Mr Fernando Mendoza Tellez has incurred.
Mr Hilton could have killed somebody the day when he decided to drive his car whilst under the influence. The money he has had to pay in the way of compensation is an easy way out however, let’s hope he has learnt a valuable lesson.
