Tenille Dashwood of Winter Park, Fla., was charged with sixth-degree larceny after police say she stole an item from the Wal-Mart store on Flatbush Avenue, police said. The alleged theft was reported to police about 1 p.m.
Dashwood, whose ring name is "Diva Emma," appeared in community court Tuesday. She was told to perform community service, according to her lawyer, Hubert Santos. When she completes the community service, the charge will be dismissed, Santos said.
Santos said outside the courtroom that his client's arrest was the result of a mistake. She was using a self-checkout machine at the Hartford Wal-Mart when she bought about $30 of items but forgot to pay for an iPod or iPad case, Santos said.
Hartford police described the item as a red iHome Slim Swivel iPad mini case valued $21.14.
