Bai Ling Blogs: Theft Was an 'Innocent Mistake'

Bai Ling is grateful that she's only been charged with petty theft for stealing some items from an airport newsstand, and says the whole incident was an "innocent mistake."

"I am relieved that the prosecutor has decided not to file misdemeanor charges against me and to treat this matter as an infraction," she writes on her blog. "What happened was an innocent mistake on my part and I am confident that the truth will be told since I never had any intention of taking items without paying for them."

The actress was arrested last month for allegedly shoplifting $16 worth of celebrity magazines and a package of batteries from a terminal convenience store at Los Angeles Airport.
