Paris and Nicky Hilton’s younger brother Conrad has received his official punishment for threatening the lives of travellers while flying on an airplane last year.

The 21-year-old younger brother of Paris and Nicky Hilton was arrested after cursing out travellers on a British Airways flight from London to Los Angeles last July.

Authorities accused him of calling other passengers “peasants” as well as threatening to murder crew members. At one point he reportedly got so out of control, flight attendants were forced to handcuff him.

Conrad pled guilty in March to misdemeanour assault on the matter.

And Access Hollywood reports he was sentenced to 750 hours of community service for his crime in court on Tuesday June 16. In addition to community service, Conrad must seek mental health counselling and undergo treatment for substance abuse.

During the hearing, he apologised for his poor behaviour and claimed an incident like this would never occur again.

But Conrad isn’t out of trouble just yet. He still faces charges of reckless driving and evading police in Riverside County, California.

The Desert Sun newspaper previously reported the hotel heir was driving on the I-10 California freeway near Palm Springs last August when the accident he caused occurred.

The California Highway Patrol told the publication Conrad was travelling in his 2013 BMW at a high rate of speed around 12:20pm before he accidentally swiped a 1971 Volkswagen in its left rear while attempting to cross over into the right hand lane of traffic. The teenager’s car then collided with a tractor trailer driven by Davy Van, who was not injured.

Conrad is said to have been freed from his wrecked vehicle by the jaws of life and then swiftly transported to Desert Regional Medical Center to treatment for a broken hand.
