Hilton Released On Bail
LATEST: PARIS HILTON's brother BARRON has been released on bail after his arrest for driving under the influence (DUI). The 18-year-old was arrested on the Pacific Coast Highway in Malibu, California at 8.30am on Tuesday (12Feb08). It is believed he accidentally ran over a gas station worker before his arrest. Hilton was released from the Lost Hills Sheriff's station on $5,000 (GBP2,500) bail on Tuesday evening. Los Angeles County Sheriff spokesman Steve Whitmore confirmed Hilton had been charged with misdemeanour because his blood alcohol level was .14 - nearly twice the legal limit. Meanwhile, it has emerged Hilton's family found out about his arrest through media reports. His father Rick tells Usmagazine.com, "I haven't been contacted yet by either my son or the police. If what I have heard is true, it is very disturbing and I will have a lot to say - but it will be to my son not the media." However, older sister Paris tells Hollyscoop.com, "I am sad for my little brother. I hear he is doing OK. I am there for him and will be speaking to him in an hour or so, hopefully, to lend my support."
