According to the Beverly Hills Police Department, police were called around 1:30 a.m. on April 16 by hotel security because Richards was allegedly acting belligerent and refused to leave the restaurant inside the hotel. The 50-year-old reality star then reportedly refused to leave the restaurant's bathroom, at which point security issued a private citizen's arrest.
"None of this would have happened if I didn't drink," says Richards, who admits to having an ongoing struggle with alcoholism.
Dr. Phil's emotional interview with Richards will address her sobriety, which came up several times this past season on Real Housewives. While her castmates and sister, Kyle Richards, have claimed she's not been sober, Richards "staunchly defends herself against the allegations."
