Paris Hilton’s brother is ordered to pay $4.9 million dollars to a man that he injured while he was driving under the influence in 2008.
According to Third Age, the then 18-year-old Barron Hilton was driving a Mercedes-Benz when he pulled into a Pacific Coast Highway gas station and struck a gas station attendant. Hilton’s blood alcohol level was at .14%, which is above the legal limit in California. The attendant’s lawyer claims the man was permanently disabled and underwent multiple surgeries and will receive $4.9 million dollars for his pain and suffering. Hilton has been ordered to pay $225,000 in punitive damages as well as $71,000 in interest for his California DUI.
