Nicole Kidman

Knocked to Ground,

Pressing Charges

Exclusive Details

2:05 PM PDT : 
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.

You can reasonably infer from the acts of the defendant what his intent was at the time. His behavior in the past MAY come into evidence, if the prosecution can show that it is close enough to his current behaviour to be relevant and not prejudicial. The judge will give insturction to help the jurors understand how they go about doing that. It is based on reasonableness.

Didn't California pass a law that they have to be 100 ft. away... or is that just if they have children with them. Paparazzo suck.

Nicole did the wright thing, calling the cops an pressing charges....with the Paparazo runing her down, he could have ruined her career, with serious injuries. Look what the Paparazzi did to Prince Dianna? it cost her , her life ............Paparazzi needs to know better that something are just wrong! every celiebrity needs to press charges against them for stalking , harrashment, mental abuse, an the list goes on...........They dont want to respect Actors/Actress's Privacy while on their own property....Time to take away the Paparazzi's privacy an limit their job Describition to a limition or have them do serious Jail Time.

I literally bumped into Miss Kidman and her husband at a theater in Nashville. She was absolutely charming. If she was angry enough to press charges, I'd say she has a good reason. Lord knows I'd not complain if every paparazzi on the planet was hit by a lightning bolt.

Hopefully, most of us who read this story can use our brain and see this event for what it is and agree that this guy is an absolute s***bag.

Funny that he took off running when he was on the other side of the camera.

Good good, sue his ass, even if Nicole doesn't win a lawsuit make him spend all his money. Don't give up this golden opportunity, claim all kinds of injuries, emotional trauma, etc. you know all the stuff that human leech would claim if the tables were turned.

One thing to consider, maybe the bike was a Chinese knock-off and that's why he couldn't stop it !

Somebody should have crushed his larnyx with their boot......accidentally. Or broken his little bicycle.........accidentally.

All paparazzi should be exterminated.

Then these sites would follow.

She didn't deserve getting rammed by a pap.....What if you had that happen after an evening out? This is just rude and aggressive...way too much for anyone to have to go through. I think there needs to be a law against what paps can do. Sorry, we all watch movies and enjoy them entertaining us....we don't need to be jealous and be happy that they get knocked down and hurt. I really don't care if TMZ is around....I like movies and really don't give a crap about their personal lives.....leave these people the **** alone.
