1:55 PM PST -- A rep for Kim showed up in court and conceded Kim had no proof she'd made progress in completing her AA classes or community service. The judge withdrew the warrant and set a probation violation hearing for June 3. The judge could throw Kim in jail after the hearing if he determines she didn't make a sufficient dent in the classes or community service.
9:40 AM PST -- The bench warrant has now been signed by a judge. Bail was set at $26,000.
Kim Richards is staring down an arrest warrant in her shoplifting case because she's ditching her AA classes ... as far as the court is concerned, anyway.
TMZ has learned the judge is about to issue a warrant for the 'RHOBH' star. Our sources say Kim never turned in documentation to prove she's attended the number of AA classes ordered in her plea deal.
Kim's been struggling in all her cases. As we've reported ... the judge in her Beverly Hills arrest already scolded her for not doing community labor, and shot down her foot injury excuse.
She's supposed to do a total of 52 AA classes and 30 days community labor for the shoplifting arrest -- but if she doesn't present some proof, STAT ... she'll be doing jail time.
