Las Vegas - Police say the 21-year-old model boyfriend of celebrity socialite Paris Hilton was cited after a scuffle with another man at a Las Vegas nightclub.
Officer Laura Meltzer says River Viiperi was ticketed for misdemeanour battery and released after police were called early Monday to the Wynn Las Vegas resort.
Meltzer says a man complained that Viiperi hit him during an argument.
No serious injuries resulted.
Hotel officials declined to comment.
Meltzer didn't identify the complainant, and she says police officers didn't talk with the 31-year-old Hilton, who had been with Viiperi at the club.
