Shannon Marketic, Former Miss USA 1992, Accused Of Shoplifting Beauty Products

Posted: Updated:

DENTON, Texas — Police say a former Miss USA has been released from a Texas jail after she was accused of stealing almost $90 in beauty products from a Target store.

The Fort Worth Star-Telegram reported Wednesday that 38-year-old Shannon Marketic was released after posting a $500 bond in the north Texas town of Denton.

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.

Marketic won the Miss USA title in 1992. 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.
