Paris Hilton's Boyfriend Attacked at Courthouse

4/27/2011 1:09 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

UPDATE: The attacker -- James Rainford -- was just booked for misdemeanor battery on a person and is still in custody.

Paris Hilton
's boyfriend Cy Waits was just attacked outside the Van Nuys courthouse -- where Paris was set to face the man who allegedly tried to break into her house.

Our guy at the scene says Paris and Cy were walking into the courthouse moments ago when a man "lunged" at Cy ...  then grabbed him by the neck.

We're told the couple's security team took down the attacker, who is currently being detained by police.

Paris was scheduled to testify in court today against Nathan Parada ... the alleged knife-wielding man Cy was forced to pull a gun on in August 2010.

Check out the video of the incident above. After the attack, the man -- who we've now identified as James Rainford -- tells photographers he recently proposed to Paris ... and that she accepted. So, yeah.

There is obviously history with this guy and Cy and more to the story than what Paris has said. She couldn't tell the truth to save her life so we will probably never hear the real story...

HAHAHAAHAHAHAHAH, wouldnt u attack a dude who looks like cy?? The dude is a midget with chicklet teeth, seriously bro, you got money, sue your dentist for that bad teeth job. Take all your fancy cars and shove it up your ass. You are 1 step away from being gay and that would be an insult to our gay community. Gays tend to be sorta hot, you are not.
