The star, 28, was rear-ended in her Land Rover by a paparazzo driving a Jeep Cherokee in Beverly Hills just before 2 p.m. on Monday, Lt. Tony Lee told Us.

"She complained of pain," he said, adding that she refused medical care at the scene but is "going to seek her own medical treatment."

According to a witness, Richie went to L.A.'s Cedars-Sinai Medical Center with her mother to be treated for minor injuries.

The driver who rear-ended Richie was arrested and charged with driving without a license, and is in the process of being "physically booked," Lee told Us. Police are still trying to verify his identity.

A police spokesperson could not confirm if anyone was speeding but said that they weren't at a traffic light or intersection.
