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.

GETTING HIT BY A BIKE IS NO JOKE. YOU CAN GET INJURED EASILY.

Don't blame her for pressing charges. Wu's a known instigator & a message should be sent to these intrusive, smart ass paps. She could've been seriously injured.

Good. Paps who can't work without harassing their subjects are s***.

If this had just been some random guy who couldn't stop in time, I wouldn't be supportive of the police car. But this is a paparazzi who was probably trying to get in her face, and for that reason I'm glad it was reported.

Isn't this akin to a war crime? Preventing her from a primo seat at the umpteenth fashion show of the week....

Where's the moral outrage?

He looks like a complete jerk! He probably did it on purpose. I'm not a huge fan of hers (she's a bit uppity for me), but I can understand her wanting to press charges on this ass!

I really hope she presses charges. The photogs are getting out of hand.

The pap should be charged & I hope Nicole is ok, but an afternoon at a fashion show sounds incredibly boring.
