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.
