One of the former stars of a popular reality television show was out on bail after being arrested Sunday for allegedly shoplifting at a Target store. Entertainment Tonight reports that Kim Richards, a familiar face on TV from her appearances on “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills,” was released Monday afternoon on $5,000 bail.
Richards reportedly spent Sunday night in jail in Van Nuys, Calif., after being placed under citizen’s arrest by a loss-prevention officer at a Target location on Sepulveda Boulevard in Van Nuys.
ET reports that Richards was suspected of stealing a shopping cart full of toys and merchandise valued at $1,000.
“ET has learned that she had three carts full of items, but was only charged for a portion of what she loaded into her vehicle,” ET reports.
The report notes that Richards, 50, has struggled with sobriety and had a previous arrest for alleged public intoxication at the Beverly Hills Hotel.
