Former 'Real Housewife' Arrested On Shoplifting Charges

This is the second time the former child actress has been in trouble with the law this year.

 Actress and reality TV celebrity Kim Richards is in trouble, again.

According to CBS Los Angeles, the former "Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" star spent the night in jail after she was arrested for allegedly shoplifting at a Southern California Target store.

Richards, 50, had about $600 worth of items in her cart when store security apprehended her on Sunday, E! Online reported. When the police arrived, Richards was taken into custody and booked in Van Nuys Jail on a misdemeanor theft charge, LAPD spokesman Mike Lopez told CBSLA.

Richards' bail was set at $5,000, and she was released on Monday afternoon.

"I couldn't imagine Kim stealing or shoplifting anything. She is a giver," Richards' ex-husband Monty Brinson told ET. "I am in complete shock."

In April, police arrested her for appearing intoxicated at the Beverly Hills Hotel. During the incident, she was also accused of attacking an officer. She pleaded not guilty to charges of trespassing, public intoxication, resisting arrest and battery.

"I was angry and frightened and I was scared. I knew what I had done," Richards told Dr. Phil. "The whole night is my fault. None of this would have happened if I didn’t drink."

Richards entered an alcoholic rehabilitation center after the incident at the hotel. In July, she told ET that she had completed the treatment program and been sober for more than a month.
