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 looked like she was loving the attention! Who do you think tipped them off to her whereabouts? Do you really think they lurk around, waiting for her next move? Paris has her peeps let them know of her every move...this is just another stunt to take attention away from her being a drug whore. Real good role model. And why did Cy come back without her? Did you see the way she was rubbing her nose? And her new "reality" show? WTF is that about? She doesn't want to be seen as a ditzy blonde...it's bleach blondes like this bimbo that give natural blondes a bad rep! Brown hair and brown eyes, that's Paris' reality...gonna show us that Paris? Yea, I didn't think so....

Well, Paris you have done a real job on this kid. Before he met you he had a job and life. After you, not so much. How did Paris escape jail. Jail would have made the world safer for awhile, and jail also might have been true justice.

Uh oh i am screwed    

Why were the paps not cited for obstructing traffic? Why are they allowed to swarm like that? Personally I would be scared to get out of the car if people were acting like that around it. I don't blame them for not stopping. And IMO the person deserved it. It wasn't as if the person driving just randomly hit someone walking across the street. This photog was attacking the car and they could not get away. I am sure they did and do fear for thier safety in cases like this.

More and more it seems the paparazi try to instigate trouble and get reactions (like Russel Brant) I know there is a price for fame but someone needs to step up and protect the rights/saftey of the celebs.

What is that so out of the ?, as in "A papa would NEVER! do something like that." I'm not saying it didn't happen but you gotta believe him/her played it up for their own reasons.If we see something from a doctor stating their was damage done caused by this then that's different but until then I say BS. I had my foot run over and although it hurt a bit I sure wasn't in agony.

What about the Paris curse? Cy has already lost his job, ability to get another top job in Vegas, he sleeps with a skank, he gets buried in paps, he will no doubt have mounting legal troubles and sooner or later his girl friend is going to jail... This guy is a Darwin Award waiting to happen!

There should be a bounty for running down fat chicks!

I think this is brilliant, I never laughed so hard. After the pap went down and then moved away she yells out, “don’t take my picture” when she becomes the centre of attention, now how funny is that! She can stalk and block the hell out of someone else but when the tables are turned she wants to cower and hide. 1 Celeb + 1 moving vehicle = 1 flattened pap…priceless.

As much as I can't stand these two I will never feel bad for these photographers getting hit. And then they have the nerve to sue afterwards. Idiots!
