Conrad Hilton was released from prison this week after spending two months behind bars. The 22-year-old hotel heir was sentenced in June for violating the terms of his probation, stemming from an outburst on an international flight back in February 2015.
Conrad – son of Rick and Kathy Hilton – was put on parole in March 2015 following the airplane incident, but after failing a drugs test, was ordered to enter a 90-day residential substance abuse treatment programme, which he began in January of this year.

He had to be removed from the programme, however, after testing positive for drugs – including cocaine and marijuana – three times.
During his hearing in June, Conrad was told he had been given multiple chances to obey the terms of his probation. "What we haven't tried yet is a custodial term," assistant US attorney Alexander Schwab told him, noting that Conrad had reoffended in "precisely the same way – over and over and over".
At the time, Conrad had asked to serve out the 60-day sentence under house arrest at his grandfather's home in Palm Springs, claiming it would be easier to avoid friends who were a "bad influence", according to E! News.

He also asked to do a "work program" instead of jail time, but his request was denied, and he was sentenced to prison.
Conrad's initial run-in with the law came in July 2014 when he became belligerent on board a British Airways flight from London to LA. As well as repeatedly smoking in the airplane lavatory, he physically threatened crew members and was verbally abusive to his fellow passengers, who he referred to as "peasants".
He was later restrained and handcuffed, allegedly saying: "I could get you all fired in five minutes, I know your boss… My father will pay this out; he has done it before. Dad paid them $300,000 last time."
He has three older siblings; Paris, Barron and Nicky
Conrad is the great grandson of Conrad Hilton, who founded the Hilton Hotels chain, and the youngest child of Rick and Kathy Hilton. He has three older siblings; Paris Hilton, 35, Nicky Hilton Rothschild, 32, and Barron Hilton II, 26.
