The 2015 arrest of Kim Richards hasn’t come as a surprise to many. During the latest season of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, Richards admitted to taking a pain killer, which had been prescribed to her ex-husband, Monty Brinson, who is currently suffering from cancer. Although taking a pill to address pain may not have been a red flag for some, any recovering addict knows taking a narcotic, especially one which they are not prescribed, is a major no-no. Weeks later, Richards’ 2015 arrest occurred.
As the Inquisitr recently reported, Richards’ 2015 arrest went down at the Beverly Hills Hotel on Sunset Boulevard in Los Angeles, California, shortly after 1 a.m. According to reports, the reality star was seemingly drunk at the time of her 2015 arrest.
An E! News report on April 16 claimed Richards was described by police as “belligerent with slurred speech and reeking of a strong odor of alcohol.”
Days prior to the 2015 arrest, Richards made an appearance on Twitter, during which she denied having changed since last season of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.
“What happened to the nice Kim who loved turtles & treated ppl respectfully? Always been a fan BUT u changed,” a fan told Richards on Twitter.
In response, Richards insisted, “Noo… I’m still the same!!”
Sadly, not many believed her. Below are a few comments from fans in response to Richards’ latest tweet:
“What a shame. You are so completely awful. You don’t deserve to have a sister.”
“You seriously need help if you believe that. Take an honest look at yourself. You’ve treated your sister and others awful.”
”You know nothing of sobriety then or you are also in denial – shame.”
Another fan, who claimed to have seen her that day in Santa Ana, California, claimed she wasn’t looking so good.
“You kinda really looked bad today.”
After news of Richards’ 2015 arrest hit the web, Davidson weighed in with the following tweet to her fans online.
I feel badly for Kim Richards and her family my thoughts and prayers are with them during this difficult time.

Aside from Davidson’s comment on Richards’ 2015 arrest, the cast of Bravo’s The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills have remained silent.
During her 2015 arrest, Richards was charged with public intoxication, trespassing, resisting an officer, and battery on a police officer. She will appear in court to address the charges on June 10.
