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.

It's not an accident when u stalk someone with a camera repeatedly. The pap press charges on celebs all the time. It is time for a change in the way these "people" do they're "jobs". There should be a law against coming within 20 feet to get ur "story"

I agree with her pressing charges because bicycles do not belong on the sidewalk. He was an adult and should know better. Sick of bicyclists who do not follow the rules of the road.

This was a SET-UP; the old hag is so desperate for attention that she'll DO ANYTHING to get it. Her BOTOX injections don't work anymore & she ABANDONED her adopted children....WICKED WITCH Kidman is pathetic.

An Ambulance? I wonder how many people DIED from no available ambulance because Nicole's BIG TOE was sore and DESPERATELY NEEDED EMERGENCY CARE...

I hope Nicole's husband has a chance to run into this POS and smash the guys face into the pavement and even the score.

Just one question, if it was me, would they send the paramedics and the police? I think NOT. They would tell me: sorry ma'am, that is not an emergency if you are not really hurt. You can bet on it. But she is Nicole Kidman, of course!!!!

Looks to me like the person on the bike fell to the ground... Kidman is still standing upright, at least in the photo above.

I guess this attention will have to do for Nicole; she certainly isn't making any headlines with her "ACTING" career...
