Paris Hilton and boyfriend Cy Waits were involved in an alleged hit and run car accident, according to Radar Online. So just how bad was the hit and run, and will Cy Waits and Paris Hilton get off the hook so easily this time around?
I really would start to wonder if Paris Hilton keeps trying to compete with Lindsay Lohan to reclaim her lost title of tabloid darling by getting in trouble, if it wasn’t for one thing: Cy Waits was driving when the hit and run accident occurred. So it looks like Paris Hilton is safe this time and will have to find another way to try and beat Lindsay Lohan in the race for who has the most mug shots (well, Lindsay Lohan’s got the quantity, but I think Paris Hilton can at least claim to win when it comes to quality).
But while Paris Hilton seems to be safe in this situation, what about driver Cy Waits? What kind of cold-hearted human being would hit another and just drive away? According to Radar Online’s reports, the story isn’t quite that cut-and-dry, making things look not quite as bad for Cy.
Apparently he and Paris Hilton were leaving the Boa restaurant in Hollywood when Cy’s Bentley was swarmed by paparazzi. According to reports, he gunned the car to get away from them, and video of the hit and run shows Cy Waits running over the leg of a female photographer. But while Cy Waits didn’t get out to make sure the woman was okay, he did at least roll down the window to ask if she was alright. When he was told that she was okay and to go by another photographer, he and Paris Hilton then fled the scene.
So was one photographer telling them to leave because he knew it was possible that Cy Waits could be charged with a hit and run? Someone allegedly started chanting “hit and run” as the couple left, and it wouldn’t be surprising if a paparazzo took this opportunity to make this story into something bigger than it would have been had Paris Hilton and Cy Waits stuck around until help arrived.
Cy Waits was later given a field sobriety test and detained by police before being released. No charges have been filed yet, and the woman luckily only suffered a cut on her shin.
It looks like dating Paris Hilton is proving to be very difficult for Cy Waits. He was arrested just weeks ago on the suspicion of driving under the influence of alcohol and drugs, which led to him losing his job. And with the way Paris Hilton goes through boyfriends, all this trouble definitely might not be worth playing the temporary role of boy toy for the heiress.
However, there is one thing that could save this relationship, something simple that would also help other starlets prone to driving difficulties like Lindsay Lohan: just hire a driver!
