Paparazzo Arrested After Accident With Nicole Richie

A photographer was arrested after he was involved in a car accident with Nicole Richie in Beverly Hills on Monday.

The paparazzo who rear-ended Richie was arrested and booked for being unlicensed because "officers could not verify his identification."

"He's being physically brought into the station. This will likely be a misdemeanor traffic violation, and the photographer's vehicle will be towed," said Lt. Tony Lee.

The photographer claimed that he had dropped a camera on the floor and was trying to retrieve it at the time of the accident.

No ambulances were called and the damage to the vehicles was described as minimal. However, Nicole Richie was said to be nursing minor injuries from the fender-bender. Her two children were not in the vehicle with her at the time.

"Ms. Richie was driving with a passenger when she was struck by two photographers driving in one vehicle behind her," explained Lee. "She complained of pain, however, she told officers she was going to seek her own medical treatment."

According to a witness, 28-year-old Richie went to LA's Cedars-Sinai Medical Center to be treated for the minor injuries.
