We brought you news of Conrad Hilton’s bizarre plane meltdown a few weeks ago, although the actual details of it were kept quiet as nobody was coming forward with such information – it was simply left with vague suggestions of him running around abusing flight attendants and passengers and attempting to smoke weed in the toilet.
Conrad himself has now entered rehab and signed a plea deal which means he’ll get a maximum sentence of six months in jail – he had been facing twenty years so that’s worked out kinda sweet for him – but because of this it meant there was no trial, which also meant that there was no testimony so the colourful details of his meltdown might never have come to light. Fortunately for us though, GQ managed to track down a witness – Patricia Mitchell, a Brtiish life coach – who was sat in economy that day and was willing to spill the beans.
Even though Conrad had a first class ticket, it wasn’t long until he was bothering her and her fellow passengers in the cheap seats. She describes the events as ‘kind of fascinating’.
Check out her unedited account of events below and on the slideshow. We’re sure you’ll agree that it’s more than ‘kind of fascinating’ and verging on the completely and utterly bizarre. Those damn Rich Kids Of Instagram.

At about 5:20 p.m., five minutes after a late takeoff, Hilton leaves his seat, ignoring the illuminated “Fasten Seatbelt” sign, and heads to the rear galley of the main deck. [Note: For the rest of this story, everything in bold type comes from the criminal complaint.]
PATRICIA MITCHELL: It was during that bit when the stewards are up but nobody else should be. My ears were popping, and I was waiting for the drinks trolley, when suddenly, he’s coming down the aisle. I thought, “Whoa, that’s not normal.” He was dressed posh casual, expensive haircut. He looked like a polo player and walked with a sure-footed march, being loud. He said something like they had attacked him. I heard a lot of “fucks.” The staff were being really low key, but it was monstrous. Inhuman. I mean, really, it was.
Four members of the crew ask Hilton to return to his seat, but he refuses, saying that if they are standing, he should be allowed to stand, too. He’s cursing and being aggressive. He says he has “a fucking problem” and threatens to hit someone seated four rows behind him.
P.M.: He was being demeaning. I thought he was in the middle of a psychotic episode. For at least an hour I was thinking: are we going to have to go back? Are they going to turn the plane around?
Hilton returns to his seat briefly, but once the seatbelt sign is turned off, he appears again in the rear galley and complains about a male passenger giving him the “stink eye.” He is highly agitated and says the man “either wants to fight me or fuck me but I am not gay.”
P.M.: I was about to video it, but he looked at me, really threatening. I don’t often watch horror movies, but you know how the walking dead have a look in their eye? I thought, “He’s going to come at me next.” He turned around and said, “Now everybody’s judging me.” That’s when they closed the curtains.
