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.

Sue his azz. She's a very slender woman so he could have hurt her badly and she broke her fall with her arm which could be injured.

" An accident is an accident ". Yes he accidentaly knocked a person on the ground. This is ridiculous. people living like hunted animals and now no charges. There is why I reduced my TMZ time. Putrid ignorance everywhere. He was wrong on the first place for the biking on the pedestrian walk and to get that close to someone tomstrike them down... We are just glad it wasn't some stalker with a weapon... Oh that is right it was Carl Wu...

Nicole is so massively botoxed, she even smiles when you cut her a leg off, and this bitch doesn't even bleed!

"An accident's an accident."

His rushing at her for a photo and applying the brakes too late is the cause
He forgo saftey for profit

She should sue. He certainly would if it were the other way around. These dirtbags need to get a taste of their own medicine.

It he was chasing her then it wasnt an "accident', it was an "on purpose". Those cops are idiots.

Are we sure one of her friends/ handlers didn't stick their foot out and trip the poor man, Mr. Wu ?

A good a$$ whippin' might teach this guy to back off and behave himself. Sounds like it's way overdue.

F ing idiots ride bikes on the sidewalks all the time in West Hollywood, it's illegal, but never seen a cop writing a ticket for it. I understand it's safer than riding in the street but slow the F down so you don't hurt the pedestrians.

I don't see how charges can be made. The only thing is a fine for riding on the sidewalk.
