Having personally brokered peace for all time between the U.S. government and North Korea, basketball Hall of Famer and all-around goof Dennis Rodman spends his time nowadays, among other things, being accused of stealing 400-pound amethyst crystals from Orange County, California yoga studios.
According to a report from Los Angeles Times, Ali and Ariana Shah, owners of the Vibes Hot Yoga studio in Newport Beach, say Rodman on two occasions entered their business and, along with a couple associates, ripped off $3,500 in merchandise, including a “ginormous geode amethyst crystal” the group hauled out of there after accidentally smashing it to bits.
Shah said a man whom he identified as Rodman walked into the shop with a former Vibes employee and another man and woman just before the shop was scheduled to close at 1:30 p.m. Tuesday.
Rodman told TMZ that he and his pals were in fact there to help move the crystal, and that they were given permission by the staff on hand to treat themselves to “a couple gifts” as a token of gratitude.
Shah said surveillance video shows Rodman, whom the employee didn’t recognize, again trying to distract the employee as a woman, whom Shah said also was there the day before, grabbed three or four articles of merchandise, hangers and all.
