Re­al­ity show actress is ar­rested

Los Angeles Times - - THE STATE - — Joseph Serna

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.
