Kidman wanted to press charges…
TMZ reports that Nicole Kidman is pressing charges against a paparazzo photographer who crashed into her on a bicycle and knocked her to the ground.
Kidman had reportedly left the Calvin Klein show for New York's Fashion Week and was returning to the Carlyle Hotel. After walking toward the entrance, a freelance photographer named Carl Wu rolled toward her on his bike. After Wu got close to Nicole, he appeared to hit his brakes, but they didn't work. He slammed into and she was sent crashing to the ground.
According to another photographer who was there, Kidman was furious and said she wanted to press charges against Wu. Kidman called the police. Cops reportedly wrote Wu a ticket for riding his bike on the sidewalk, but will not arrest him for a criminal offense. Kidman had no visible injuries. One police officer said, "An accident's an accident."
Carl Wu is a notoroious photographer who has had run-ins with other celebrities in the past, including Lady Gaga. There's even a Tumblr account called, "F**k You Carl Wu."
