The Chinese-born actress was scheduled to fly from Los Angeles International Airport Wednesday evening, February 13 to New Mexico to begin shooting her new film "" when she was detained by an employee at the Crews of L.A. gift shop in Terminal 1 at roughly 4:30 P.M. for trying to walk out of the store without paying for $16 worth of in-flight entertainment two magazines and two packs of AAA batteries.

She was taken into custody by LAPD and booked on one count of misdemeanor shoplifting at the Los Angeles Police Department's nearby Pacific Station. Being held for a few hours, Bai Ling was then released on her own recognition.
