Woman Returns Shoe She Stole from Hulk Hogan Beach Shop

The Michigan woman said she "had done a stupid thing"

A Michigan woman who recently traveled to Clearwater, Fla., home of the Hulk Hogan Beach shop, called the former wrestler’s store on Thursday to say she had done a “stupid thing.” She had stolen one of Hulk Hogan’s autographed shoes and she wanted to give it back.

The recent visitor, and obvious Hogan fan, nabbed the shoe valued at $5,500, but employees didn’t realize it was missing until Tuesday, the Associated Press reports. A TMZ report from Wednesday says three women distracted the manager while a fourth, the admitted bandit, grabbed the boot. Though the thief has left the Sunshine State, she didn’t take the shoe with her. The woman reportedly arranged for the shoe to be returned by people she met while she was in Clearwater.

No charges have been filed.
