Nicky Hilton eats at IHOP.

Normally, that would be the news, but it was what happened after Hilton ate her smiley face pancakes that was really unusual.

Just after 5:00 a.m. Monday morning, a male transient pushed Hilton to the ground outside a West Hollywood IHOP, according to TMZ.com.

But instead of screaming and running, Hilton pinned the guy and held him there while somebody else called the police.

When law enforcement arrived, the delusional individual claimed to be Hilton's boyfriend.

Which just wasn't true.

Hilton the hero. Has a decent ring to it.
