Nicky Hilton makes citizen's arrest in West Hollywood

A man who allegedly elbowed Nicky Hilton into the side of a car outside a West Hollywood restaurant was cited by the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department after the socialite asked to make a citizen's arrest.

Michael Broadhurst, 50, of Los Angeles was cited on suspicion of misdemeanor battery stemming from the incident early Saturday morning in the 8000 block of Santa Monica Boulevard.

The sister of Paris Hilton was not injured during the incident outside an IHOP restaurant, where Nicky Hilton and three others were dining, Sheriff’s Department spokesman Steve Whitmore said.

A deputy at eating at IHOP saw the incident.

"A deputy at eating at IHOP saw the incident"

Then he should have made the arrest for battery, not forced her to make a citizens arrest there is something not right there.

Are you serious? You got elbowed and you want to arrest the person? Yeah, because we need to round up all those chronic elbowers. That'll make our streets safer!!

Regaring Nicki Hilton's citzen's arrest. Bravo! She knows how to not be targeted as a victim. Bullys can't steal other people's energy if other people won't allow themselves to be bullied. We should all stand up and take action, like Nicky.
