( dpa ) - Barron Hilton, like his older sister and fellow Hilton hotel heir Paris Hilton, has been arrested in California on an alcohol-related driving charge.
The younger Hilton, 18, was taken into custody Tuesday in Malibu, the upscale beach community in Los Angeles County, on suspicion of driving under the influence of alcohol after another driver spotted his black Mercedes weaving across the centre line and called police, news reports said.
His blood alcohol content was 0.14 per cent, or nearly twice the legal limit, and he was carrying a fake drivers license, police said. He is also below California's legal drinking age of 21.
He spent the day in jail until posting 5,000 dollars in bail.
His arrest followed that of Paris Hilton, 26, the reality television star and model, who spent three weeks in jail last year after violating her probation after pleading no contest to alcohol-related reckless driving.
