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.

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.

My mother was knocked off her feet and broke her hip by a bicycle waiting for the train on a platform at her 80's. She ended up bed ridding for 2 years as her hip mingled and caught pneumonia at a senior home. This guy should be sued.

It appears that she ripped the back of her dress from the hem up. Hoping she is okay, she'll be sore tomorrow.

More celebrities should take action against these leeches.

Assault with a bike while illegally riding on a sidewalk is not a punishable offense?

Nicole 'Granny Freeze' Kidman is so pathetic in every way. Does anybody actually watch any of her films? Seriously her acting is so bad, so wooden that it is hard to believe she still gets film offers. The only real thing on her body these days are her hands. Everything else is fake.
