Conrad Hilton, the younger brother of Paris Hilton, was in custody early Tuesday on suspicion of violating a restraining order taken out by his ex-girlfriend.

Officers responded to a reported restraining order violation about 4 p.m. Monday in the 2300 block of Jupiter Drive in the Hollywood Hills, Officer Mike Lopez, a Los Angeles police spokesman, told the Los Angeles Times. Officers found Hilton inside his ex-girlfriend’s home and took him into custody, he said.

Los Angeles County sheriff’s jail records indicated that Hilton remained in LAPD jail custody this morning, his bail set at $5,000.

Monday’s arrest was the latest legal wrinkle for the great-grandson of hotel magnate Conrad Hilton. In May, he turned himself in to Riverside County authorities in connection with an Aug. 23, 2014, incident in which authorities say he led an officer on a high-speed pursuit before crashing his black BMW in Cathedral City, according to the arrest warrant.

Hilton was booked on a charge of felony reckless evading a peace officer and was released almost immediately by Riverside County authorities on $100,000 bail. He’s scheduled to appear in court July 14.

This spring, Hilton pleaded guilty in Los Angeles federal court to attacking several flight attendants last July while aboard a British Airways flight from London to Los Angeles. As part of his plea agreement, Hilton was ordered to remain inside his home between 10 p.m. and 5 a.m. He is scheduled to be sentenced July 10.
