BOCA RATON (CBSMiami) – A South Florida philanthropist with a famous last name was arrested Sunday and charged with domestic battery.

Conrad Hilton III is the 53-year-old grandson of the founder of the Hilton hotel chain.

Hilton, according to a Boca Raton police report, was at Abe and Louie’s at 2200 Glades Road when a police officer witnessed him stand up from a seated position at the bar, and grab and push his girlfriend.
