DENTON (CBS/KTVT) Shannon Marketic, a former Miss USA, has been released from a Texas jail after she was accused of stealing almost $90 in merchandise from a Target department store in North Texas.

Marketic, 38, was released from a Denton jail Tuesday after posting a $500 bond.

The former beauty queen is charged with stealing an Oil of Olay Professional ProX skin treatment worth around $60, along with some baby items.

According to Capt. Len Carter with the Denton Police Department, Marketic was detained by Target loss prevention just before 9 p.m.

Marketic's Facebook page indicates she is the marketing director for the North Texas Fresh - an American Basketball Association Team. A call and email to that organization have not been returned.

This is not Marketic's first brush with the legal system. In June of 2007, Marketic was arrested for public intoxication at Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport.

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. According to the Dallas Morning News, a federal judge threw out the suit saying the sultan was immune from such a court action as a foreign head of state.
