Actress Bai Ling was charged yesterday with one count of petty theft for stealing one pack of AAA batteries and two magazines at LAX before hopping on a flight to Mexico on Feb 13. The gift shop employee called authorities and she was booked at LAPD's Pacific Station but let go once they figured out who she was. The total of her stolen goods? $16. C'mon Bai, your parents must have taught you better than that, and we know you've got cash saved up from movies and your appearance on LOST, so what's the deal? Apparently the star was coping with ""the huge problem of breaking up" right before Valentine's Day. Her friend Damon Elliot tells E! News, "She had some relationship issues going on. She wasn't in the right frame of mind...She was very spacey, and that was pretty much what happened. She was distracted and had a lot of things going on." Perhaps this compounded with the backlash of the fashion police after the Grammy's on Feb 10 was too much for the poor girl to take. [E!]
