The hotel heir reportedly walked free on 1 August (16).

Paris Hilton's younger brother Conrad has been released from prison after serving time for a parole violation.

A Los Angeles federal judge sentenced the 22-year-old to two months behind bars on 6 June (16) after he was kicked out of a substance abuse programme.

Conrad, who admitted to using drugs including cocaine and marijuana, completed his punishment and walked free on 1 August (16), a source tells

A representative for the hotel heir has yet to comment on the release reports.

Conrad was placed on three years' probation and handed 750 hours of community service last year (15) after attacking several flight attendants during a British Airways flight from London to Los Angeles in 2014. He had to be restrained after becoming violent onboard after allegedly smoking marijuana and cigarettes in an airplane lavatory.

At the time, his attorney, Robert Shapiro, attributed his client's behaviour to a bad reaction to a sleeping pill.

However, Conrad has struggled to stay out of trouble - in May, 2015, he was charged with recklessly evading an officer of the California Highway Patrol following a car crash in 2014, and last summer (Jun15), he was arrested again on suspicion of violating a restraining order obtained by his ex-girlfriend, Hunter Daily - an incident which was deemed a violation of his probation.

Conrad was also accused of failing a number of court-ordered drug tests, travelling outside of California without permission, and failing to complete three mandatory treatment programs, leading a judge to order him to check into a residential rehab centre in January (16).
