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.

If you're in a position to get hit by a slow rolling car, then you're too close and you CHOSE to put yourself in harms way. The guy DID NOT MOVE despite being honked and yelled at. This was his fault. And now he's going to sue. Insane. Maybe the fat idiot should try getting a real job. Loser.

here is an idea...why don't they ticket the pap's for obstructing traffic. when someone is driving away and you jump in front of their car what do you think will happen....duh...when will the police do something about the pap's before it gets out of hand....oh, oops...TOO LATE!!!

Not allowing someone to leave by blocking their vehicle is against the law. Obviously Cy made his intentions clear. If the photog got hit, then it was her fault. Celebs really do deserve more protection for the vultures. Especially when they are attempting to sue celebs for wanting to leave the area. What are they suppose to do, sit there in their car until the photogs are done with them?

He did exactly what he should do, run over them and leave the body in the gutter.

I'm with others on here. The pap deserved it. The driver was clearly trying to slowly leave without hurting anyone and those idiots wouldn't get out of the way. "we love your Paris!" Yeah sure you do. They are all a bunch of morons.

Another lame publicity stunt by the dregs of Hollywood. They love tweetin' their whereabouts with the gullible AKA dumb papps.
