Kim Richards has been charged, she is a former child actress and a star of the reality television series The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills and she has been for this incident, reports are saying. The arrest happened back in April, and it doesn’t seem to look good as she may face criminal charges for public intoxication, reports TMZ.
Immediately following the arrest, Richards checked into rehab but apparently that did not impress the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office who charged her with public intoxication, resisting arrest and battery on a police officer.
Richards was arrested in the early hours of April 16 when security at the Beverly Hills Hotel ordered her to leave because she was creating a disturbance. As she was being escorted out, the 50-year-old asked to use the restroom and then refused to come out. When police arrived she reportedly began cursing them and then kicked a cop in the leg.
Officers stated that Richards, 50,
“was displaying symptoms of alcohol intoxication including slurred speech and belligerent insolent behavior cursing at the officers at the officers and passively resisted arrest,” according to a statement from the Beverly Hills Police Department.
She could get a two-year jail time.
Richards is from Mineola, New York.
