One of the stars of the “Real Housewives” franchise was charged with battery on a police officer, resisting arrest, trespass and drunk in public, TMZ.com reports.
The website reports that Kim Richards, known for her role of “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” was cited and released following her arrest early Thursday at the Beverly Hills Hotel. Her alleged “drunken rampage” included kicking a police officer, the report notes.
Sources told the website that Richards became drunk and “unruly” while in the hotel’s Polo Lounge and was asked to leave. She allegedly then refused to come out of the bathroom, and after the police were called, officers had to “drag her out” of the bathroom, according to the sources.
“Richards’ sobriety was called into question on the recent ‘Real Housewives’ reunion special — when Lisa Rinna suggested that Kim was on something during a car ride earlier in the season,” TMZ reports.
Richards, who has reportedly struggled with substance abuse issues, received supportive messages from her “Real Housewives” castmates after the incident.
Extra reports that Rinna tweeted: “I was sad to hear about Kim’s incident and I wish her and her family the best.”
Brandi Glanville also posted on Twitter, writing: “Real friends are their in the good times, the bad times &especially the worst times. I am blessed with real friends & am a real friend myself.”
