A billionaire and a supermodel’s silver-spooned son was arrested after skipping out on his cab fare in Connecticut — a measly $28 bill.

Greenwich police arrested billionaire Peter Brant and former model Stephanie Seymour’s son, Harry Brant on Thursday night, after catching him running from the cabbie he stiffed.

Despite his wealthy family, Brant told police he didn’t have the money to pay for his $27.85 ride on Thursday night, fleeing the cab on foot, the Greenwich Times reported.

When officers found him, Brant was “sweating profusely and pale in color,” police said.

He first lied and told cops he was not in a taxi, and soon changed his story to admit he didn’t have money to pay for the ride.

The billionaire’s son started yelling “No! No!” when officers asked him to put his hands behind his back, and tried running off before cops took him down.

Brant was swinging his arms and kicking his legs wildly until police were able to handcuff him, according to reports.

Officers also found a small bag inside Brant’s wallet, which tested positive for narcotics.

The 20-year-old socialite refused to identify himself until another officer recognized Brant as the billionaire's son.

He is being charged with larceny, resisting arrest and drug possession.

His arrest comes just four months after his brother Peter Brant Jr.’s drunken bust at Kennedy Airport, when the 22-year-old fought a Port Authority cop in March.

Their mother, a former supermodel, was also arrested in January for a drunken driving arrest, smashing into a utlity pole and crashing into another car after in Greenwich.

The two troublesome brothers are both considered high-profile socialites in New York.

Harry Brant’s court appearance is scheduled for August 4.
