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.
