Barron Hilton -- The Ultimate DUI Reward

1/13/2010 8:20 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Barron Hilton has shown he's not to be trusted behind the wheel of a car -- but that didn't stop his dad from buying him a $60,000 ride as a reward for getting his license back after a DUI bust in 2008.

Barron Hilton

Hilton got his driver's license back Tuesday ... it was yanked after he pled no contest in 2008 to DUI in Malibu, where he allegedly hit a gas station employee with his car.

The 20-year-old went to the DMV and had to re-take his road test. We're told he was sober and he passed. His reward from pops -- a black 2010 Mercedes E550 Coupe.

It may seem like Barron is spoiled, until you realize ... his 15-year-old brother Conrad gets to drive dad's $200,000 Bentley. It's all relative.

Meanwhile, I'm driving a P.O.S Chevy Impala with no heater and no passenger side window. Good to know that when you're a rich kid you get REWARDED for your F*** up's.

Barron seems to have moved on from his highschool antics.

He attends Loyola Marymount university and appears to be a very polite and thoughtful young man.

His tweets are considerate of others. I like him.

Just wondering why it would be anyone else's business what car a young man drives?
If he got the car for behaving himself and going in a positive direction -that's called positive reinforcement - all good parents do that.
Rich parents simply do it in grander style.
My folks helped me out too - because they could.

The difference between good parents and bad parents is that good parents never,ever give up on their kids when they make a mistake. I think the Hiltons are good parents. Not perfect but good parents.

Stop hating on rich people. What the hell is the matter with this web site.

Don't Harvey and his gayy boyfriends have snazzy cars to go cruising in?

Or do they think they're the only people who can have a nice set of wheels.

WTF a lot of kids get new cars for graduation and stuff. Why would this be unusual. The make of the car would depend on what a family can afford. Wealthy families buy better cars, what else is new.

this website lives in Lindsay Lohans azz and rarely reports anything she does wrong, no matter how drugged out or perverse.
But they are always quick to make a huge deal out of every littl thing with the hiltons, and sometimes they write up innocent things in hateful ways about them just to be mean.

It's been TWO years which is an eternity in a young man's life. Let the kid move on already.

He got a DUI, finished his sentence, and is almost finished his probation, whats the big deal about him getting a perfetly normal car for someone of his financial standing?

I am waiting for the Hilton clan to grow some balls and go after Rocky Delgadildo and his attempt to become attorney general of California. Would love to see Paris abd perhaps Britney retailate against him for the way they were treated.

Actually Baron's dad is smart.
This car is equipped with "Pre safe" as an option.
It's a feature that stops a Mercedes-Benz as it is coming up on a stationery object or an object that is rapidly decelerating.
Perfect for inattentive drivers like Baron or for driving into fog banks.

Now that is a fine example of parenting. Don't bother to make your children responsible for their actions. Can't wait till the whining "how did this happen?" when he kills someone or goes off the deep end like his ugly sister.

THIS IS WHY CHILDREN ARE THE WAY THEY ARE BECAUSE THE PARENTS KEEP BAILING THEM OUT OR GIVING THEM THINGS THAT THEY DON'T NEED. IF THIS SO CALLED RICH BOY WAS BUSTED FOR DUI THEN HE DON'T DESERVE TO BE BEHIND THE WHEEL OF A CAR PERIOD. HE IS A HAZARD TO OTHERS ON THE ROAD. HIS PARENTS GIVING HIM ANOTHER CAR JUST TELLS HIM ITS ALRIGHT TO GET BEHIND A WHEEL NO MATTER IF YOU ARE DRUNK. WELL IF HE HURTS OR KILLS SOMEBODY THE COPS NEED TO CHARGE HIS PARENTS AS WELL NO MATTER HOW OLD THE BOY OR GIRL IS. GIVING HIM A CAR IS NO WAY TO SHOW HIM ITS WRONG TO DRINK AND DRIVE. THAT'S RICH FOLKS FOR YOU. FLAUNT THEIR MONEY EVERYTIME U TURN AROUND. THATS WHY THERE CHILDREN DON'T NEVER LEARN NOTHING BUT THE THINGS THAT ARE WRONG. DRUNKS ARE THE ONES WHO ARE MAKING CAR INSURANCES GO UP EVERYTIME THEY GET BEHIND THE WHEEL. THIS IS A SERIOUS MATTER IN THIS COUNTRY AND PARENTS NEED TO BE HELD ACCOUNTABLE FOR THEIR CHILDREN NO MATTER THEIR AGE.
