Nicole Richie is back at home after a fender bender with a paparazzo landed her in the hospital Monday.

Richie spent several hours at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles Monday following the accident, according to multiple sources. On Tuesday, she was visited by her mother, Brenda Richie, at the home she shares with Joel Madden and their two kids, Harlow, 22 months and 1-month-old Sparrow.

Eduardo Arrivebene, who rear-ended Richie's vehicle while she was driving with a passenger Monday, was arrested for driving without a license. He was later freed on $1,225 bail.

Following the incident, Lt. Tony Lee of the Beverly Hills Police told PEOPLE that Richie "complained of pain" but declined to be taken to the hospital by paramedics, opting instead to take herself there.

A rep for Richie has declined to comment about her condition.

Following the accident, Richie reportedly hired celebrity attorney Mark Geragos, reports.
