‘RHOBH’ Star Kim Richards Arrested After Drunkenly Kicking Police Officer: REPORT

Recovering alcoholic Kim Richards from the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills was arrested early this morning after an alleged drunken confrontation with a police officer.

Us Weekly confirms Richards was arrested at 1:30 A.M. Thursday morning at the Beverly Hills Hotel after she reportedly drank too much.

Beverly Hills Police Department spokesman Lt. Lincoln Hoshino told Us the blonde reality star appeared to have “had too much to drink and was disturbing some of the other patrons” in the hotel’s restaurant. When she was asked to leave by hotel security, she refused and ended up locking herself in the hotel’s restroom.

“Hotel security requested to make a Private Persons Arrest and BHPD officers entered the restroom and took her into custody,” Hoshino explains. “She was passively resisting and she was taken into custody on Private Person Arrest.”

Then, while being booked at the Beverly Hills police station, Richards kicked one of the officers.

Richards — who was sober for several years after entering rehab, but relapsed during season 5 of RHOBH — has since been released and will face charges of public intoxication, trespassing, resisting arrest and battery on a police officer during a May 10th court date.
