NICOLE KIDMAN was knocked to the ground on Thursday (12Sep13) after a photographer on a bicycle crashed into her in New York City.
The Moulin Rouge! star was returning to the Carlyle Hotel after watching the Calvin Klein show at New York Fashion Week when the snapper, named as Carl Wu, came speeding toward her.
Wu allegedly lost control of his bike and could not avoid colliding with the actress, who tumbled to the ground as her high heels flew off her feet.
Editors at TMZ.com report that a furious Kidman initially wanted to press charges, but cops who arrived at the scene would not arrest Wu for a criminal offense, writing the paparazzo a ticket instead for cycling on the sidewalk.
Kidman was said to have no visible injuries.
