NEW YORK (Reuters) - The daughter of Rolling Stones guitarist Keith Richards appeared in a New York court on Wednesday after being arrested for spraying graffiti on a building and drug possession.

Theodora Richards, 25, was taken into custody Tuesday night after plainclothes officers spotted her using an acrylic paint marker to spray the letters "T" and "A," with a heart symbol in between them, on the side of a building in New York's trendy Soho neighborhood, police said.

Richards, the daughter of Richards and former model Patti Hansen, was also charged with unlawfully possessing marijuana as well as a controlled substance, which police say they believe to be hydrocodone, a prescription pain killer.

Richards was arraigned on Wednesday afternoon in State Supreme Court in Manhattan. She turned down an offer from prosecutors of two days worth of community service and one day of substance abuse classes. No plea was entered and she was released without any bail.

She is due back in court on April 21.

Richards, a model, has appeared in campaigns for fashion giants Tommy Hilfiger and Burberry.
