Nicky Hilton fights crime. Who knew?

Nicky Hilton was reportedly attacked over the weekend at a West Hollywood IHOP. Authorities say a homeless man pushed her to the ground prompting her to open a can and put him under citizen’s arrest – right in front of the cops. E! News reports:

L.A. County sheriff spokesman Steve Whitmore tells E! News the 25-year-old Hilton was at the front door of the pancake purveyor around 4:50 a.m. when she was shoved in the back.
“One of our deputies was in the IHOP…and heard a commotion,” Whitmore says. “He went outside to investigate and discovered that Ms. Nicky Hilton was pushed from behind.”
Hilton was more insulted than injured and–we’re not making this up–placed the perp under citizen’s arrest, which Whitmore says was unncessary, since a deputy was already present.

That’s like peeing on a house fire after the fire department just put it out. Which I heroically do all the time. Ladies?

EDIT: I added a pic of the “homeless man” and you’re not fooling anyone, Chris Brown. But good effort.
