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.

That guy deserved it. They swarm people's cars and don't let them go anywhere and then when they get hurt they cry. It's like being a stuntman and then getting hurt and crying foul. Grow up you baby.

This is a situation where it's really hard to blame one person. It's unfortunate that someone got hurt, but at the same time if that photographer wasn't standing directly in front of the car she wouldn't have gotten injured! They shouldn't be allowed to block their view and the road; they should be given a ticket for blocking cars!

First of all his last name is Watts not Waits. Also, those paps put themselves in harm's way, by standing where traffic goes through, and in front of moving cars. It isn't Cy's fault, he was to drive away, and the paps stand there thinking "I'm gonna get my money shot. If they hit me, I'll sue!" Spare me! The paps need to get a REAL job taking pics of people who WANT to get their pics taken. Very effed up indeed!
