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.

A dozen paps on the street and impeding traffic = illegal; A dozen paps in the street taking flash photo's at a driver's eyes while he is driving at night = illegal; A fat ass pap being run over by the impeded driver = Absolutely, PRICLESS!

You are all missing the REAL story here: That photog was a CHICK not a DUDE. Unbelievable. The rest of the video is irrelevant.

NO ONE has any business near a vehicle with a running engine!

The photog didn't only put herself in danger, but others too.

It's time there is a law against the paps. This is beyond crazy!

Those parasites with cameras are the lowest and dumbest s*** on earth. There should be a bounty on them, give each one who wipes a parasite out a $10,000 prize. Paris is disgusting, but the parasites are worse.

i don't feel one bit sorry for those leeches. You get in the way of the car, crowd them, point flashbulbs at them when they're trying to drive and then you cry when you get hit by the car?? tough luck.

Perhaps Paris got dropped off first because she had "chewing gum in her purse.

The only reason she couldn't get up quicker after getting hit is because she's eaten herself into immobilization. I also don't feel sorry for these idiot "celebrities". They don't have to go to the same hangouts every night knowing the paps will be there. No one is innocent.

I think it is the photogs fault. They swarm these stars and think nothing of it. there should be somekind of buffer allowance and that would eliminate the problems. If a photographer gets hit in the buffer zone "oh well". Yes they are stars and should expect that, but they should be able to move along without having to worry about who is under their car trying to catch a picture.
