Paris Hilton & Cy Waits Involved In A Hit And Run


Convicted lovebirds Paris Hilton and Cy Waits, who recently got themselves into a bit of trouble in Las Vegas on charges of drug possession and DUI, ventured out here in Hollywood last night to do whatever it is that these two do when they venture out in Hollywood. Near the end of their night, tho, things got a bit hairy … as the couple were involved in a hit and run accident after Waits allegedly purposely drove his car into a group of paparazzi photogs and ended up pinning one under his car:

Paris Hilton’s boyfriend was cited for hit-and-run last night … after he hit a photog with a Bentley and then just drove off. It all went down as paparazzi swarmed the car as Paris and Cy Waits left Boa in West Hollywood. The posse of paparazzi was all over the car, when suddenly Cy accelerated, knocking a photog down. The couple took off after the hit and the photog called the cops. Paramedics were also called and took the female photog to a local hospital. We’re told at some point later, Cy came back, sans Paris, and spoke with police. Law enforcement sources tell us Cy was cited for hit and run, then allowed to leave. And get this … sources say Paris is saying, “The pap is making up injuries.”

You’d think that the years that Paris Hilton has been courting the paparazzi would teach her how to handle situations like this … but, clearly, she don’t learn so quick. You know, it’s lucky that Paris wasn’t driving the car … can you imagine if she had been arrested? I understand that traffic citations don’t count in terms of her plea bargain but if she gets arrested — for anything at all — she immediately goes to jail in LV. Tsk Tsk. My guess is that Waits will end up getting some small fine for this accident … but the photographer who was injured may decide to sue for injuries. Alas, just another Wednesday night in Hollywood.

    though i dont like paris at all. i think that if a bunch of crazed people were swarming my vehicle with no regard to the fact that it was on the road and moving then i might just hit the gas to. the paps need to back the hell up sometimes.

    ^ I kind of agree. I am not saying they are in the right for hitting somebody..but the paps are bottom-feeding losers who swarm on people. If the paparazzi took a few pictures…let the celeb gracefully get in a car and drive away, it ‘d be fine. They always have to take it 10 steps further. Disgusting.

  • Janelle

    i agree with periz. when you step in front of a moving car knowingly… ugh. it’s disturbing how dangerous the crowd of paps are around a car. but the dumbass Cy at least should have had common sense to not flee the scene.

    Do you think that a lot of these celebrity car accidents have to mainly be blamed on the paparazzi that’s following them? Maybe I’m not blaming those people (Lindsay, Paris) enough, but maybe the paparazzi have something to do with these constant altercations. …OR maybe Paris and Lindsay are just shitty drivers…but Cy Waits was driving in this instance so I don’t know…

  • Roze

    It pisses me off when the paps always play victom everytime they get hurt by a celebrity when they are the ones stalking the celebs!

  • Amanda

    To be honest I think that the Paparazzi laws need to’s almost impossible for these celebs to NOT hit and run the way they are being swarmed

  • tj

    wait….thats a FEMALE photog?!

  • Samantha

    Luckily they had the camera pointing exactly where the dumbass was going to get hit, and that totally wasn’t set up either.
    Don’t care, hope the shitbag doesn’t get any money for putting their leg under a car.

  • Tracy

    I too do NOT care for Paris…However, this is the Paz fault, that is what he/she gets. Wasn’t there a law passed that the paz had to be so many feet from the celebz cars? I think the paz should be fined.

    So glad I’m not famous because I would hate to have to deal with the papz

  • Jen

    Paris is a horrible person, and she found someone just as horrible as her. Congrats you two.

  • Kim

    I have no sympathy for the paparazzi. How is someone supposed to even see where they are going with all those flashes going off in their face?They probably wouldn’t notice the person shout in pain either because of all the paps shouting at them. They should not be allowed to swarm cars like they do. They are endangering themselves and the passangers of the vehicles.

    That photographer was asking for it. Play with fire and you get burned. Step in front of a moving car and you get run over. More celebs should run these dummies over.
