Bai Ling ‘s Battery-Powered Bust

102.ling.mughsot.021408.jpg

In a gift to bloggers everywhere, actress Bai-Ling (best known as bat-shit crazy Bai-Ling) was arrested yesterday at LAX for shop lifting AAA batteries and some magazines.

Bai Ling was placed under citizen’s arrest by a shop employee and was “cooperative but crying” when taken away by airport police. She’ll appear in court on May 5th.

Her blog–and she does have one–indicates she’s in Albuquerque, working. She’s cast as a prostitute in Love Ranch, produced and directed by Taylor Hackford.

She tells E! that she’d just broken up with a new beau, thus the need for batteries. (We made that up.)
