Reality show actress is arrested
Kim Richards of “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” was arrested early Thursday after police said she refused to leave a hotel bathroom and later tried to kick an officer in the groin.
The ruckus began about 1:30 a.m. Thursday when security at the Beverly Hills Hotel reported that Richards, 50, was bothering patrons at the hotel restaurant, Beverly Hills police Lt. Lincoln Hoshino said.
The incident was initially reported as a fight, but it appeared Richards was alone, Hoshino said.
Richards showed symptoms of alcohol intoxication and was escorted from the restaurant by security, police said.
Before she left, Richards asked to use the restroom but then refused to come out, according to police.
“They had to physically pull her out of the restroom,” Hoshino said.
Once Richards was taken to booking, she allegedly tried to kick a male officer in the groin but hit his leg.
Richards was taken to County Jail, records show.
She was arrested on suspicion of public intoxication, trespassing, resisting an officer and battery on a police officer and released on $20,000 bail about 10:45 a.m.
