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.

Paris better get away from Cy. I am not saying that the pap did not cause this but it seems like the police have been around him a lot latley. Paris will never make it a year without contact with the law as long as she is around him. She will be in Clark County jail in no time.

Wait a second this isnt a bad thing. Paris keep spending time with him! Never leave his side!

Dear paparrazi people,
1. No one cares about Paris Hilton except you.
2. When some one gets into a car after leaving a restaurant you can assume that car will be in motion soon. Get out of the way!!
No sympathy for you.

What a couple of low lives. I think it would be just fine to see them run that car off the PCH somewhere near Malibu whilest they are both texting or something...very cool indeed.

That was a WOMAN? You papparazzi people need to grow up and get normal jobs. Do you have any idea how lame and desperate for a buck you look? What adults stand around all day and follow tweens and 20 somethings around town? Really. Paris Hilton going out to dinner is about as interesting as the lint I pulled out of my belly button this morning. Yawn. What does a picture like Paris in the front seat of a car yield, like fifty bucks these days? Yawn.

that and this pap should know better.

if you want to get a picture and don't want to be a complete dirtbag about it, stand beside the car NOT IN FRONT OF IT!

clearly they either stood in the way on purpose, or is too stupid to realize cars go forward, not up

it's their own fault for being a moron and standing in front of a car.

and here's the thing... damned if you do damned if you dont... Cy took of and ran down a photog, which gave the idiot just cause to make a story out of it. however, if the photogs didn't move and continued to swarm, they would have been forced to call the cops (who in LA probably don't give a rats ass about pap's anyway) and the idiot pap woulda filed a story about that too...

IMO - ALL pap's should be charged with harassment, stalking and invasion of privacy!

The paparazzi was at fault. The Bentley was the victim. The paparazzi should also have been ticketed, all of them, for inhibiting or impeding the flow of traffic.

Does anyone wonder why Paris was taken home before he returned to deal with the Police? Ummmm...."take me home so they don't find this cocaine in my purse, then you come back to deal with this".
