Barron Hilton, 18, was arrested in Malibu at 8:04 a.m. on February 12, 2008, on DUI charges and for possession of a forged California driver's license.

Barron, the brother of famed Paris Hilton, reportedly sat in jail until friends came up with the $20,000 bail. At the time of his arrest he blew a 0.14 percent blood-alcohol reading.

In July 2011, Hilton was ordered to pay $4.9 million to a gas station attendant he struck with his car on the same day that he received the DUI. Witnesses say they saw Hilton driving the wrong way down the highway before pulling into the gas station where he then hit the gas attendant Fernando Tellez. Hilton was also ordered to pay $225,000 in punitive damages and around $71,000 in interest.

Hilton denied driving the car and claimed he suffered from amnesia, yet he pled "no contest" to driving while intoxicated on the same day.
