A former Miss USA and Los Angeles news anchor was busted for stealing headphones at LAX



Lu Parker, a former Miss USA and news anchor for KTLA in Los Angeles, was caught stealing a pair of $200 headphones that belonged to an LAPD detective, reports the New York Daily News

Police spotted Parker snatching the headphones on security camera and pulled her off her flight before it left. 

Parker could face a charge of misdemeanor theft because the headphones were so expensive. 

Parker is famous for winning the pageant in 1994 while representing South Carolina. 

She has worked as a news anchor at a local Los Angeles telelvision station called KTLA since 2005, famously dating former Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa. 

She has two Emmys and has never been publicly in trouble with the law.

Some on Twitter have pointed out just how dumb a decision Parker made. 

To add insult to injury, the KTLA anchor has made news on other local TV stations.
