Richards' daughter arrested in NY

The daughter of Rolling Stone Keith Richards has appeared in a US court on drug and graffiti charges after she was accused of painting on the side of a New York City building.

Theodora Richards, 25, was released without bail after her arraignment. She did not enter a plea or speak to reporters as she left the court.

According to the criminal complaint, police officers noticed the model drawing a small "T (heart) A" in red ink on the side of a building that houses a convent in the swanky Soho section of Manhattan on Tuesday night.

She is alleged to have told an officer: "I hope I don't get in trouble for this."

Police said they found a small amount of marijuana, eight and a half hydrocodone pills and a paint marker on Richards.

She said she did not have a prescription for the hydrocodone, a pain reliever, police said.

She is due back in court on April 21.

Richards' lawyer Stacey Richman, would say only that her client was "a polite, lovely woman".

Richards, who modelled for Burberry and Tommy Hilfiger, lives in Soho. She and her sister Alexandra, are the daughters of rocker Keith and his wife, Patti Hansen. The guitarist also has two other children.
