Lt. Lincoln Hoshino tells ABC News  that officers took her into custody around 2 a.m. Thursday at the Beverly Hills Hotel after security guards said she refused to leave a restaurant and holed up in a bathroom.

Police say she was belligerent, had slurred speech, cursed the officers and kicked one in the leg. She was booked for public intoxication, trespassing, resisting and battery on an officer.

Richards was released around 8 ½ hours.

She has acknowledged struggling with alcohol problems in the past.

    I know a bit about the rules of AA. She should have changed her sobriety date when she took that pain pill during the last season of RHOBH. She admitted it was wrong and that it was a pill from her ex. She did not maintain 3 years of sobriety. Its about being honest. Lying about sobriety, the guilt eventually catches up to the user. As it obviously did for Kim. I hope she gets an experienced sponsor and goes to meetings
