Shannon Marketic, a former Miss USA, was arrested after being accused of stealing approximately $90 worth of Oil of Olay beauty products, as well as some baby products, from Target.
Per the AP, she was released from a Texas jail after posting a $500 bond.
Shannon Marketic, 38, isn’t alone in the news when in comes to being accused of stealing beauty products. On Wednesday, another shoplifting celebrity made it into the Google trends: Former Mayor Giuliani’s daughter, Caroline Giuliani was arrested for stealing approximately $150 worth of cosmetics at a NYC Sephora store.
According to the AP: Marketic is charged with stealing an Oil of Olay Professional ProX skin treatment worth around $60, along with some baby items. She told The Dallas Morning News the items had rolled beneath her purse in her shopping basket without her knowledge and she denied shoplifting. In 1997, she sued the sultan of Brunei, accusing him of having held her as a sex slave. A federal judge threw out the lawsuit, according to the Dallas Morning News.
CBS reports: This is not Marketic’s first brush with the legal system. In June of 2007, Marketic was arrested for public intoxication at Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport.
An email to this Examiner from Donald Kieran Austen, Founder of an organization named Thursday’s Child in West Hills, CA, was received on August 11. Mr Austen stated in his letter that Shannon Marketic was “innocent until proven guilty” and that “Shannon is on our board and a personal friend.”
Respectfully, this Examiner acknowledges that no one arrested is guilty until a court ruling is made. However, the information above does not indicate that Shannon Marketic is guilty of shoplifting. It is purely a report that references a respectable news source, The Associated Press, and their report that Ms. Marketic was indeed arrested and accused of stealing. The outcome of the court case is not stated in this article as it is published prior to the Ms. Marketic’s court date.
