Los Angeles,CA September 30, 2010
Paris Hilton and boyfriend Cy Waits were involved in a car accident with the paparazzi on Thursday morning, in which Waits was cited for misdemeanor hit and run.
The incident took place early Thursday morning in West Hollywood when photographers swarmed the couple as they were leaving a restaurant.
As Waits attempted to leave, a woman photographer was struck by the couple’s car.
“It was more scary than anything because all I could see was this car still going and rolling on top of me,” hit-and-run victim and part-time paparazzi Carol told RadarOnline.com in an exclusive interview.
“And that’s what I thought about when I got home from the doctor; I’m lying in bed and all I can think about is that car coming at me!”
Authorities tell RadarOnline.com that Waits was “detained” but later released. He was given a citation and will appear in court at a later date.
