Nicole Kidman plans to press charges after a paparazzo knocked her to the ground in New York.
Photos from the scene show Nicole hitting the pavement after a photographer on a bicycle slammed into her as she entered her hotel in Manhattan.
A New York Police Department spokesman said the actress was returning to Manhattan’s Carlyle Hotel when she was hit by a photographer riding his bicycle on the sidewalk.
“She has minor injuries. Nothing too serious. She refused medical attention at the scene,” the spokesman said.
TMZ identified the bicyclist as photographer Carl Wu.
Photos obtained by the website show Nicole reaching toward the pavement for balance and later holding onto a female companion with one shoe off as the bicyclist laid on the ground.
According to the outlet, the actress plans to press charges.
“Witnesses tell TMZ as Wu got dangerously close to Nicole, he appeared to hit his brakes, but it didn't do the trick. He slammed into her and she went crashing to the ground,” the website claims.
Police declined to confirm Wu’s identity as there is no criminality in the case. They are said to issue him with a ticket for cycling on the pavement, but one policeman is reported to have said: "An accident's an accident."
A spokesperson for Nicole has yet to publicly comment on the incident.
