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.

Common sense: If you do not want to get run over by a car do not stand in front of a moving one.....

I can't stand Paris Hilton but lets get real here.... Many Paps put themselves in these situations ON PURPOSE just hoping someone will run over them, bump them, brush them, etc. so they can extort money via a "settlement". Celebrities have a bulls eye on their backs and the LOW LIFE Paps have their eye on the prize! Not all Paps behave this way, but the majority do. There needs to be laws to prevent this type of thing from happening and require a "buffer zone" to protect everyone!

you are siding with a drugged out ho who's only claim to fame are a sex tape, drugs and wearing no underwear? That vapid waste of space and her latest male ran over someone. She makes her money by being in the public! IF it wasn't for people like that the women they ran over, she would be another wannabe porn skank.

These are not Bill and Jane Normal out for a quiet dinner with the family. That vapid skeleton KNOWS where they are, wants to be seen and whines about it. If you don't want your picture taken then here are some things to try:

1. DON'T have your pr person call them and tell them where you are

2. DO NOT go to the place where you are well aware there photogs will be.

3. DO NOT sit in the front seat on full display.

How about you just go back to your home planet where wastes of skins are welcomed. She contributes nothing to society other than STDs. A hooker on the street is better than this thing because at least the hooker doesn't try to pretend to be anything but the ho she is. Unlike Miss Hilton who tries to pretend she's important - she's not. The sooner this retarded bimbo goes away, the better off society will be. And don't let it breed, its genes are defective.

If you are going to stand in front of a moving car then what do you get? Run Over! Of course they should not have drove off and they should have offered assistance but it was criticle to leave to get rid of the ***** and then return. What else could they do? At least this time it is rumored one of them was wearing their Sta****wear pocket boxer briefs from www.sta****

She's a disgrace and a slutty pig. Her boyfriend is as well, but I don't know his rapsheet. When are our paid public funded judges going to treat her like the rest of us. Unless, of course they're getting some sort of kickback that our wonderful media has not discovered yet. Hey guys, there's a story. How much do judges get when they let the rich and famous off for what you and I would serve time for?

Paps should be cited by police for disrupting and impeding traffic when they are in the streets and in front of cars where there is no cross walk. If they don't want to get hurt, stay out of the way! I am sure this pap will play it up for all it's worth...pathetic!

"Here is a marveolous idea why don't you freaking keep a safe distant while taking your pictures and stay out of the road when a vehicle is attempting to move! I learned that in 1st grade! Are paps STUPID that they cant figure that out!" ... Why do you think they're paps ? Probably because their IQ is too low for any other job !

The guy he hit (you all keep saying "she"; however, "she" is clearly a dude) deserved it. These photogs are so invasive and all deserve to be in jail. There should be a law passed to put all these s***bags away.

Most likely the reason he dropped Paris off is because she was probably using drugs again and he didn't want her to get caught.. Thats my opinion.

I saw the video last night on TMZ. They tried to clear the path, and have a right to go out. The photographer should be fined for not allowing the two of them ( Paris and boyfriend) to leave. With all the flashes its no wonder he didnt know it was a person he hit and not the curb or something else. The press needs to stay out of the way of cars...say at least 15-20 ft ...they have the lens to take pictures from that far, I dont think that Paris's b-friend should be charged, they were victoms.

Cy needs to dump Paris. She's the one who's getting him in trouble. He's had a clean record before he hooked up with her. He wasn't even with her when she was busted for pot. So don't try to blame Cy for that. As for the cocain bust that was hers. She would never have put it in her purse if he asked her to. I'm sure he never even knew about it! Cy's a good person, he and his brother came up the hard way to get somewhere in life, and now Paris is dragging him down. I just hope he dumps that trash ASAP!
