Richards, 50, had been hanging out at the Polo Lounge inside the hotel when, according to a Beverly Hills Police Department spokesperson, she was asked to leave by hotel security because she was hammered and being 'unruly'.
Richards then went to the bathroom and refused to come out. Cops were called and apparently had to drag her out of the restroom. There are reports that on the way out she was acting belligerently, slurring her words and reeking of booze.
Kim was taken to a nearby jail where she allegedly kicked a police officer.
Cops issued a citation and the mother of four was later released—she's been charged with trespass, resisting arrest, battery on a police officer and drunk in public.
Richards has had well documented struggles with substance abuse in the past and admitted during the recent RHOBH reunion that she had taken a pain pill when Lisa Rinna suggested she was 'on something' during a car ride.
Richards was adamant she hadn't fallen off the wagon though, and now faces a May 10th court appearance.
