Paris' Boyfriend -- Cited for Hit-and-Run

9/30/2010 10:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Paris Hilton's boyfriend was cited for hit-and-run last night ... after he hit a photog with a Bentley and then just drove off.

Cy Waits hit and run.
It all went down as paparazzi swarmed the car as Paris and Cy Waits left Boa in West Hollywood.  The posse of paparazzi was all over the car, when suddenly Cy accelerated, knocking a photog down.

The couple took off after the hit and the photog called the cops. Paramedics were also called and took the female photog to a local hospital.

0930_paris_video_smallWe're told at some point later, Cy came back, sans Paris, and spoke with police.

Law enforcement sources tell us Cy was cited for hit-and-run, then allowed to leave.

And get this ... sources say Paris is saying, "The pap is making up injuries."

Law enforcement sources also tell us they're looking into all of the photogs, because flashing the lights could have blinded the driver ... which may constitute interfering with the operation of a motor vehicle --  which is also a crime.

UPDATE: Sources close to Cy tell us ... Waits is adamant that he was not cited for hit-and-run. Instead, Waits believes the photographer placed him under citizen's arrest -- and cops were obligated to sign the citizen's arrest form.

Sources also tell us Cy wasn't aware that he struck the photog until after he drove away ... but once he found out -- via text message -- he immediately called the police himself to follow up and eventually returned to the scene.

No no no. I'm totally taking his side. First off any idiot that puts himself that close to a moving vehicle is at fault. That's just ridiculous.Really cops the flashing lights? Maybe because the individual moved his body in front of the moving vehicle purposely??? These guys are idiots.

Eh you stupid paparazzi made this guy wait 10 minutes just to make a right turn. He tried to move an inch and 'pow' a fat slob is caught under the car.Not only that, the camera fell on the hood, scratching and denting it along with all the other hand prints on it. Eat ****, paparazzi.

The fact is that if your a pap it comes with the job! How could the guy see with all the paps over his car like that. You are asking to be hurt if you are around heavy machinery that is running.

the paps should all get run over, dumbasses. Based on the video, they should have all gotten a citation for blocking traffic and being on the street. damn scavengers...lowest life forms.

As a Freelance Photographer in Canada, I say, LEAVE them alone! You cause more accidents, mishaps, embarrassment moments, etc
When are you going to learn, or regret, that you cause deaths, more damage, more break-ups, more divorces, separations, heart-aches, etc.
How would you feel it was happening to you???
Go after real stories, not stories that hurt someone.

REMEMBER that we are all people too and we all have feelings.

They act like spoiled rich brats. GROW THE FREAK UP already. And help the economy - GIVE A PROFESSIONAL DRIVER A JOB. Let someone else drive your rich lil arses around. This way no one else gets hurt on the road and you can drink, amongst other things, ALL YOU WANT. Cheap Arses
