After sitting in jail for nine hours when he got busted for a DUI (and was bright enough to hand over a fake ID to the cop), Paris Hilton's little bro, 18 year-old Barron, was bailed out. Not by his ga-gillionaire parents or sister. Instead, his friends had to pool together 20 grand to get him out. Perhaps the parents were trying to teach him a lesson. But rumor is that Paris' excuse was she was en route to a party in Vegas. Funny how fast we forget what it was like when the shoe was on the other foot, huh P?

Your take: Do you think the Hilton's made the right choice letting their son take responsibility for his own actions, or do you think letting him rot in jail was a bit extreme?
