Bai Ling arrested for stealing batteries

February 15th, 2008 // 74 Comments

Airport police arrested actress Bai Ling (Lost, Revenge of the Sith) after she stole two celebrity magazines and a pack of batteries from a gift shop at Los Angeles International Airport (mugshot above), according to the AP:

The items had a total value of $16, said Sgt. Jim Holcomb of the airport’s police department. The 41-year-old actress was detained by a store employee who summoned police, Holcomb said.

First rule of celebrity shoplifting: Steal something big. That way, when you get busted, people don’t go, “Damn, what an idiot.” If you’re caught boosting a Ferrari, that’s totally understandable and, also, hardcore. Stealing batteries? Everyone thinks you’re crazy. Or an emotionless robot like in Star Wars. What was its name? Oh yeah; Hayden Christensen.

UPDATE: E! News reports Bai Ling blames “huge problem of breaking up [before] Valentine’s Day.” I guess she just needed the warm fuzzy feeling of ganking some Duracells. It all makes sense now.

    Why the hell do you need to steal BATTERIES when you have millions of fucking dollars? I hate celebs.

    OMG…britney spears steals a lighter and gets away…and im sure a lot else… of course a C list celebrity like bai ling actually gets charged for stealing batteries and no slap on the wrist like crazy britney. i don’t care how nuts she is…kissing her psycho ass is not going to do her any good

    batteries for her vibe maybe? I mean, she did just break up.

    Oh, and #2, you’re a loser.

    Without makeup she looks like a man! Could she be a trannie? Shows you what make up can do. Next time I’m pounding a Chinese prostitute, I’ll keep in mind she may be 41-years and may look like Bai Ling. Fucking makeup!

    It’s obvious that Mr. Ling stole batteries because the ones in his seven inch pink dildo — it’s a really suave number: huge head, ribbed shaft, four man-fingers thick — were dead; it was to be a long, long flight back to Beijing.

    Energizer bunny just keeps on coming and coming…

    Anyone good woman knows you just get “one” thats recharges itself!


  13. It’s all a gimmick, nobody in their right mind would steal batteries while being a millionaire. It is simply for media attention. To entertain the very brainless zombies that feed on this crap. Get a soul!

  14. Dude

    there are some evil people in this world ( yes, i’m talking to you Bin Laden and you Celine Dion) but this is just WEIRD.

    blaming a breaking up ??? to steal batteries ??? I see a movie script in the writtings

  15. Auntie Kryst

    Wow, I really did not need to see her without makeup. Regardless, I’m glad she’s keeping it crazy. Otherwise she wouldn’t be the odd duck I love. Peking duck that is HAAAY OOOO!

  16. Guy

    Breakup huh? Better get some batteries for the dildo

  23. blahblahblah

    Don’t know who she is, but she’s damn ugly. I read on “” that she smells like rotten fish all the time and might possibly be a transsexual. Check it out.

  24. robert doosh

  25. Jaffo

    Isn’t this the guy from Barney Miller? I thought he was dead?!

  26. MamaSan

    Stupid gook want sucky sucky.

  27. She’s not a millionaire, she’s a B-List actress who barely works. But, I’m sure she (he?) could’ve still afforded batteries.

    But, the real thing is – isn’t it amazing what makeup can do for someone! Wow, she’s fugly!

    oh, #2 – you are a loser. As big of a loser as Mr. Ling.

  28. For five dolla she do more..?

  32. They were for her dildo. Cut her some slack.


  33. Not Ling Ling (But just as broke)

    I make minimum wage, and I can still afford batteries. Ever hear of the dollar store Ling?

    Even the more feminine Asian trannies look a little rough in harsh lighting. At least that’s what Jimbo says.

  38. The Beer Baron

    Wow, what a difference makeup makes. Dude looks like a lady. Or vice verse.

  39. sameshitdifferentyear

    Looked a lot better in Lost.
    Damned good actually.
    Shows how important regular use of shampoo and cosmetics is for a gal.

    I remember she had purple eyes in something she was in.
    Was that star wars or something?

  40. I’m sure she just did it for the attention. She is such an attention whore…

  41. 23apples

    I like that she puts her makeup on all slanty in order to accentuate her Asian eyes.

  43. Secret Squirrel

    They didn’t tell you it was Lithium batteries and she was all out of crank.
    She was trying to suck the Lithium out of them in the bathroom

  44. Secret Squirrel
