Police said the 18-year-old was apprehended in Malibu, California, after a witness reported seeing his black Mercedes-Benz swerving into a gas station on the Pacific Coast Highway.

According to the witness, Barron was driving around the station in circles, chased by two men in a grey pickup who eventually confiscated his keys.

"He was wandering around the gas station just looking very drunk. He was walking really, really funny," The New York Daily News quoted Manuel Olloh, who works at the gas station, as saying.

According to Sheriff's Officer Diane Hecht, Barron's blood-alcohol level was 0.14 - twice the legal limit. He also had a bogus driver's license bearing his name.

Website TMZ.com reported that when Barron called Paris to post his 20,000 dollars bail, the hotel heiress said: "You're going to learn your lesson."

Eventually Barron's friends called in a bail bondsman (any person or corporation that will act as a surety and pledge money or property as bail for the appearance of a criminal defendant), and he was released.
