Kim Richards

Homeless, Living Out of Car

At Time of Arrest

EXCLUSIVE

0804-kim-richards-tmz-01

Kim Richards was living out of her car when she was arrested Sunday for shoplifting at Target ... TMZ has learned.

Sources connected to the family tell us, Kim had been house-hopping since leaving rehab last month. She quickly ran out of friends and relatives who would extend themselves, and has been homeless ever since.

We're told Kim has been "self-medicating" recently, and although it's unclear if she was under the influence when she allegedly stole $600 worth of goods from Target, her conduct was truly bizarre. One law enforcement source says she left the store with more than 50 items in her shopping cart.

Kim's family does not know what to do ... they want to help but it's unclear at this point what can be done to help Kim.

Jordan Hill

Full Arrest Video...

'You're Driving Like An Idiot'

Exclusive Video

Indiana Pacer Jordan Hill had the nerve to ask cops if they HAD to arrest him ... after they busted him doing 107 mph -- and the exchange was all caught on dash cam video.

TMZ Sports got the full video, including the audio, which reveals Hill's hysterical attempt to get some leniency. As we previously reported, he got arrested last week in Georgia, and after cops pulled him out of his Range Rover -- shirtless, for some reason -- he tried to turn on the charm.

Watch the clip -- the police officer said,  "What's your story, man?  Just driving like an idiot?" Hill actually mutters an excuse which clearly did NOT sway the officer ... who quickly put him in cuffs.

But you have to hear the cop's shocked response when Hill appears to ask for a break. Not great timing ... since he'd JUST blazed past the patrol car without stopping.
