Richards was reportedly drunk when she refused to leave the Beverly Hills Hotel Polo Lounge, resulting in her arrest. An inebriated Richards was asked to leave after she became “unruly” and the reality star reportedly locked herself in the bathroom, causing the establishment to call the police to the scene.
“Kim had been drinking vodka tonics all night…At some point after midnight, the bartender decided that Kim hand enough to drink, and refused to serve her,” a source told Radar Online.
The source added that, when the bartender refused to serve her, Richards became belligerent, saying, “Don’t you know who I am?”
According to reports, the police had to physically remove Richards from the premises and kicked an officer when she was taken to the police station. Richards was released later in the day, but has been charged with trespassing, resisting arrest, battery of a police office and public intoxication.
