Kim Richards has been arrested for the second time this year, but on this occasion for shoplifting.

The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star was arrested on Sunday and subsequently released on bail for $5,000 (£3,000), E! News reports.

Kim supposedly near to $600 (around £400) worth of items from US shop Target near her home in the San Fernando Valley.


She was spotted by security taking several items and placed her under a citizen's arrest until the police arrived.

The 50-year-old was then taken to the Van Nuys Police Department, in LA, where she spent the night in jail and released earlier the same day, after being charged with a misdemeanor.

This time Van Nuys Police Department will not be providing a mug shot and will be handing the case over to the Los Angeles City Attorney's Office and prosecutors will determine whether to press charges.

In April this year the star was arrested for drunk driving:

On April 16, at around 1.30am, Kim was arrested after hotel security reported a fight.

At the time witnesses described the reality TV star as "belligerent" with "slurred speech" whilst "reeking from alcohol".

She pleaded not guilty to charges of resisting arrest and battery and faced three misdemeanor charges: resisting arrest, public intoxication and battery on a peace officer.

Following her stint in rehab Kim was said to be "upbeat" but "uncertain about her future".
