Paris Hilton's younger brother Conrad surrendered to federal authorities Tuesday to face charges of assault for allegedly attacking a flight crew during an hours-long tantrum on a Los Angeles-bound flight last year, threatening to kill flight attendants and unleashing profanity-laden tirades at them until they were forced to handcuff him as he slept, prosecutors say.
Conrad Hilton appeared in court Tuesday to face allegations that he assaulted and threatened the flight crew on the British Airways flight from London to LA on July 31.
A judge ordered that he be released on an unsecured $100,000 appearance bond and continue mental health treatment and drug and alcohol testing. Conrad HIlton is due back in court March 5. His lawyer could not immediately be reached for comment.
According to the criminal complaint against him, Hilton, 20, was in a rage for most of the 10-hour flight, saying he was angry over a breakup with a girlfriend and wanted to smoke pot. Flight attendants said they smelled him smoking pot and cigarettes in the bathroom during the flight, also.

He repeatedly told flight attendants "I will [expletive] kill you," and threatened to get them fired, the complaint says.
"If you wanna square up to me, bro, then bring it on, and I will [expletive] fight you," he is accused of having told the flight crew's customer service manager, before then threatening to "rip through" and "own" him and all the other people on the plane, whom he is accused of calling "peasants."
"My father will pay this out; he has done it before. Dad paid $300,000 last time," Hilton told one flight attendant, according to the complaint.
His constant outbursts and threats were so disruptive that children on the plane were crying, and the flight crew was forced to handcuff him after he fell asleep, the complaint says.
Hilton told FBI agents he had taken a sleeping pill.
