She was arrested in September 2014 after stealing a ring from a jewelry store in California, but was later released in October 2014. She was recently spotted at an upscale mall in Charlotte North Carolina at another jewelry store. A saleswoman at Tiffany & Co had noticed her and was alerting the sales staff at David Yurman, but at that point it was too late. Using slight of hand and a diversion tactic she was able to leave the store with a $33,000 platinum David Yurman bridal engagement ring in platinum.
