Embattled reality star Kim Richards, has found herself in yet another legal bind.
On Sunday, August 2 at 4:25 pm PT, the recovering addict was accused of shoplifting from a store, Van Nuys police said.
According to the Van Nuys police department, the former Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star was stopped by security and placed under citizen’s arrest until the police arrived.
Richards was arrested and then booked at 7:29 p.m. PT on Sunday at the Valley Jail in Van Nuys, California. She was later released on $5,000 bail on Monday afternoon. Allegedly, a Van Nuys Target security guard caught the former ‘Real Housewife’ stealing numerous items exceeding the value of $600.
As previously reported, Kim’s troubles began after she was arrested a few months ago for public intoxication at the Beverly Hills Polo Club. Bravo executives reportedly gave the troubled reality star an ultimatum to go to rehab or she would be let go from the show. Kim relapsed during her daughter’s second wedding in Mexico and consequently went missing for a week. At that point, Bravo TV executives made the decision to end their professional relationship with Kim when she “would not return calls from her bosses at Bravo.”
