Bai Ling Formally Charged with Petty Theft
"(She) was charged based on an arrest that occurred Feb. 13 at LAX where she stole two Star magazines and a package of batteries," spokesman Frank Mateljan said.
The total value of the theft was $16.22, Mateljan added.
The actress, 37, whose film roles include The Crow and Anna and the King, will be arraigned on March 5.
She faces a maximum penalty of a $250 fine and no jail time.
Bai later blamed her theft bust on problems in her love life, saying it was an "emotionally crazy" day in which she was dealing with the "huge problem of breaking up [before] Valentine's Day."
