Witnesses at the scene tell us ... Nicole has no visible injuries.  Cops are saying they will write Wu a ticket for riding his bike on the sidewalk, but will not arrest him for a criminal offense. One cop said, "An accident's an accident."

Nicole Kidman
is pressing charges against a paparazzo who crashed into her on a bicycle, knocking her to the ground.

Nicole had just left the Calvin Klein show for New York's Fashion Week and was returning to the Carlyle Hotel.  As she walked toward the entrance, a freelance photog named Carl Wu was roaring toward her on his bike.

Witnesses tell TMZ ... as Wu got dangerously close to Nicole, he appeared to hit his brakes, but it didn't do the trick.  He slammed into her and she went crashing to the ground.

A photog who was there tells TMZ ... Nicole was furious and said she wanted to press charges against Wu.  Nicole called the cops, and they're on the way right now.

Wu is a notorious photog who has had run-ins with other celebs, including Lada Gaga.  There's actually a Tumblr account called, "F**k You Carl Wu."

As for Nicole ... no word on whether she's injured -- though paramedics were on scene ... just in case.

4:45 PM PDT:  We just got video of Carl Wu leaving the police station.  He wasn't in the mood to chat.

Other paps should be against this guy too. Paps like him are the reason many people don't pity or like the paparazzi! Of all people, Nicole Kidman? She isn't even one of the attention hogs who beg for publicity.

Good, I hate these flipping bicyclists that think they own the road and sidewalks. I hope she does and wins. I hope she sets a new trend and gets these idiot off the sidewalks and from jacking up traffic.
hate cyclists!!!!!!!!

wow. well looks like the photog didn't really click mentally, all too quickly, as all (most) of his pics are of kidman herself on the ground, not of the transpiring event, thus capturing the WHOLE SCENE. what makes a great photog? seeing 'the event', not 'one part of it' (of which they themselves are 'wanting to see'? i guess..). from the pics they took, looks like 'that' was what he was looking for, namely a fallen attacked celeb. why else not aim at the entire scene? weird. i'm just saying. what's his point?

That's ridiculous! I hope she does press charges & he gets charged with some sort of assault! If you like her or not it doesn't matter, this guy was out of control! He looks like a worm

That's certainly grounds for a serious ass kicking by her bodyguards which were either asleep or out eating a sandwich during this time.
