Paris Hilton’s younger brother, Conrad Hilton, has been charged with breaching a restraining order after allegedly taking a Bentley from the house of an ex-girlfriend’s father.

The 23-year-old heir to the Hilton hotel empire was charged in Los Angeles on Tuesday with breaching a court order to keep away from two homes in the Hollywood Hills, prosecutors said.

Hilton, along with William Bell, 20, was also charged with taking a car, Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office said.

They allegedly took the Bentley Continental from the father’s home before driving it to another house to seek out Hilton’s ex-girlfriend.

The alleged breaches have landed Hilton, of Los Angeles, with two charges of disobeying a domestic relations restraining order and one of contempt of court.

If convicted, Hilton faces four years in jail while Bell, of Santa Monica, faces three years in prison.

Hilton was arrested for violating a restraining order at an ex-girlfriend’s home nearly two years ago.

He also served two months in jail for using cocaine while on probation for threatening British Airways flight attendants.

Bail for Hilton, who is the great-grandson of the hotel magnate of the same name, was set at $90,000 while Bell’s was around a third of that.

Hilton will appear in court on Wednesday and Bell will appear on June 1.
