Paris Hilton and and her boyfriend Cy Waits just can’t seem to stay out of trouble these days! Last night was no different—as the couple were leaving Boa restaurant in West Hollywood, Cy accidentally hit a paparazzo with his car.
According to TMZ, Hilton was in the passenger’s seat of Waits’ Bentley. As they attempted to drive through the swarm of photogs, Cy accelerated, hitting one of the female paps.
Paris and Cy immediately left the scene, and the photographer called the police. Paramedics were also called and took the female photog to a local hospital.
Waits then returned to the scene without Paris and spoke to police, who reportedly cited him for a hit-and-run. Waits insists he was not cited for that, but we’re hearing otherwise.
According to Waits, the photographer he hit put him under a citizen’s arrest, and therefore the police had to sign the citizen’s arrest form. They also reportedly performed a sobriety test on Waits.
Waits also insists it was all an accident, and that he didn’t even realize he had hit the pap until he drove away. He was notified via text message and that’s when he returned to the scene.
Paris tweeted about the incident, writing, "Lovely evening with friends and family ruined by aggressive paparazzi. They are literally insane!”
Waits doesn’t seem like the kind of person to intentionally hurt someone. He obviously wasn’t trying to get away with anything, since he did return to the scene. With all those flashbulbs in their faces, we’re surprised this doesn’t happen more often!
