If you're part of some drama and TMZ is around, it doesn't matter if you're a celebrity or not. You're going to be online and in-house publicists are going to e-mail every blog in town about it. Last night outside of STK, the swanky La Cienega Blvd. restaurant, a girl was hit by an SUV that sped off after. The victim's boyfriend chased down the SUV and confronted the girl until police and paramedics arrived.

TMZ calls their video footage "the most powerful, emotional exchange" they've ever caught on tape. We're just confused as to why it took so long for anyone, including the TMZ videographers, to finally call 911 (in the video, the call happened after the boyfriend chased the suspect down). The victim suffered a broken pelvis and the suspect girl was arrested and registered a .17 blood alcohol content (legal limit is .08).
