Kim Richards has been formally charged in relation to the drunken incident that happened last month, during which she kicked a police officer and got kicked out of the Beverly Hills Hotel’s Polo Lounge. The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star was arrested on multiple counts of trespassing, resisting arrest, battery on a cop and public intoxication. According to TMZ, she’s now been formally charged. Unfortunately for her, the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office wasn’t sympathetic to the fact that she has since checked into rehab. Richards now faces over 2 years in jail for these crimes. She will likely not return to the Bravo show, but no official decision has been made in that regard as of yet. During an appearance on Dr. Phil before checking into rehab, Richards admitted to relapsing while filming last season of the show and lying about it during the show’s reunion special. image via Roger Wong/INFphoto.com
