"Kim didn’t appear, she was supposed to but she didn’t — they said she had injured her foot and because of that she was unable to attend," Ricardo Santiago, spokesperson for Los Angeles County DA, tells Us. "The judge accepted the explanation so the attorney appeared on her behalf."

As previously reported, the former child star, 50, got into a heated confrontation with police and allegedly kicked an officer in the leg at the time. She was charged with public intoxication, resisting an officer, battery, and trespassing. Soon after, she entered rehab for the fourth time.

Despite reports, Santiago says that Richards did not take a plea deal, which would have included 36 months probation, 30 days of community labor, and 52 Alcoholics Anonymous classes. He says the plea deal was rejected when "the defense countered with community service vs community labor." According to Santiago, Richards' next pre-trial court date is Sept. 14, and she can face jail time if found guilty.

Trouble continued to follow Richards after her Beverly Hills Hotel arrest, however. On Aug. 2, Kyle Richards' older sister was handcuffed once more for shoplifting from a Target in L.A.'s San Fernando Valley neighborhood. As exclusively reported, her family checked her into a hospital after the incident.
