The actress was arrested by the Beverly Hills police after she had been reported bothering the Beverly Hills Hotel guests. She was charged with trespassing, public intoxication and resisting arrest. The whole incident took place around half past one in the morning. Kim Richards was first asked to leave the hotel, but she refused, and locked herself in the restroom of the hotel.

The hotel security guard performed a private person’s arrest, and the police arrested Richards when they arrived at the scene. The police issued a statement saying that “Ms. Richards was displaying symptoms of alcohol intoxication including slurred speech and belligerent insolent behavior, cursing at the officers and passively resisted arrest.” The statement also explained that “After being transported to the station for booking, Richards kicked one of the officers in the leg; however the officer was not injured.”

The “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills’s” star was released from custody, and will face charges of misdemeanor, Lieutenant Hoshino of the Beverly Hills Police Department said.

Miss Richards, and her representatives were unavailable for comment.

This isn’t the first time Kim Richards has been connected with erratic behavior, as she was forced to go to rehab in 2011, after her unstable actions on the reality TV show, which featured her sister, Kyle.
