Washington, February 6 (ANI): Hotel heiress Paris Hilton's brother, Barron, is being sued by a Malibu gas-station employee over injuries suffered during his 2008 DUI ride.

Fernando Mendoza Tellez is asking for unspecified damages for the injuries he claims to have suffered in the run-in, according to TMZ.com.

Barron was busted outside a gas station on the morning of February 12 last year, after he sideswiped a pickup truck on Pacific Coast Highway, and the peeved other driver followed him to the station and called police.

He was then made to sit on a bus-stop bench until the arrival of cops.

Filing his complaint in Los Angeles Superior Court, Tellez has alleged that Barron ploughed into him before getting out of the car.

Eye witnesses said that Barron's car hit an employee in the leg at the time, reports E!online.

Hilton pleaded no contest last April to misdemeanor driving under the influence with a blood-alcohol level above the 0.08 percent legal limit, and unlawful possession of a false license.

He was sentenced to three years' probation, fined 2,000 dollars, and ordered to spend time at the L.A. County Morgue.

His licence was also suspended for one year. (ANI)
