Los Angeles prosecutors have formally charged "The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" star Kim Richards with public intoxication, resisting arrest and battery on a police officer in connection with her April 16 arrest at the Beverly Hills Hotel.

TMZ.com said on Thursday that the District Attorney's office was not swayed by her subsequently checking into a Malibu rehab facility.

Former child star Richards, 50, who was born in Mineola, faces up to 2 1/2 years in prison, the website said. An arraignment hearing is scheduled for June 11, Us Weekly added.
