'Housewives' Star Kim Richards Arrested For Public Intoxication

Beverly Hills Police have issued a statement indicating that "The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" star Kim Richards was arrested early on Thursday on public intoxication and other charges after she refused to leave an upscale hotel in the city and later kicked an officer in the leg at the police station.
Richards, a former child actress who has appeared on the Bravo channel show since its 2010 debut, was reported by security at the Beverly Hills Hotel to be causing a disturbance in the property's restaurant.
Hotel security asked the intoxicated television personality to leave, but she refused, prompting police to be called.
Richards was being escorted from the property when she was allowed to use the bathroom and then refused to leave there as well, police said.
When police officers entered the restroom, she was slurring her speech, cursing at them and passively resisting arrest until they finally took her into custody.
