LAS VEGAS (AP) - Police in Las Vegas say the 21-year-old model boyfriend of celebrity socialite Paris Hilton was cited after a scuffle with another man at a Las Vegas Strip nightclub.

Officer Laura Meltzer said River Viiperi was ticketed for misdemeanor battery and released after police were called about 3:30 a.m. Monday to the Wynn Las Vegas resort.

Meltzer says a man complained that Viiperi hit him during a verbal 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.

Viiperi has appeared in photo advertisements for several international clothiers.
