Although she was formally charged with petty theft Monday, prosecutors agreed to let Bai plead to the alternative charge, said L.A. City Attorney rep Frank Mateljan.
The actress was ordered to pay a fine and penalties totaling $700.
"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," she wrote on her Web site Monday.
Bai, 37, has appeared in The Crow and Anna and the King among other film and TV roles.
