Paris Hilton and her boyfriend involved in run incident
The socialite and Cy Waits were surrounded by paparazzi as they tried to drive away from the Boa restaurant, in West Hollywood, when their car seemingly ran over the leg of a photographer, currently known only as `Carol`.
In video footage of the incident, Cy - who is behind the wheel of the blue vehicle - is seen asking if the photographer is OK, to which another paparazzo tells him "yes".
After the couple drove off, the photographer telephoned police who arrived at the scene to question her.
Paramedics were also called and took Carol to a local hospital so she could receive treatment on a cut to her right leg.
Cy later met with police to answer questions about what had happened and reportedly underwent a sobriety test.
He was cited for hit and run and allowed to return home but is set to appear in court at a later date.
Paris took to her twitter page to blast the "aggressive" paparazzi for spoiling her evening.
She wrote: "Lovely evening with friends and family ruined by aggressive paparazzi. They are literally insane!"
