Kim Richards isn’t going to stay out of the public eye.

The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star was photographed outside her home on Thursday afternoon, just hours after she was arrested for public intoxication.

Richards, 50, was taken into custody earlier that morning after officers responded to “a report of a possible fight” at the Beverly Hills Hotel at around 1:30 a.m.

At the time of her arrest, she “was displaying symptoms of alcohol intoxication including slurred speech and belligerent insolent behavior cursing at the officers and passively resisted arrest,” according to a statement from the Beverly Hills Police Department.

Once at the police station, Richards kicked an officer in the leg, though he was uninjured. She was released at about 10:30 a.m. after being charged with public intoxication, trespassing, resisting an officer and battery on a police officer.

A source close to the Richards family told PEOPLE that the reality star has been “acting increasingly out of it. She’s been a mess, showing up late to events and social gatherings and acting bizarre or belligerent or both.”

Richards previously spent time in a treatment facility for alcohol abuse in 2011 and has insisted on episodes of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills that she’s been clean ever since.

Her costars expressed their support for the celeb on Thursday, sharing sweet messages wishing her well on social media.
