Dennis Rodman, others, accused of stealing from yoga student in Newport Beach

A Newport Beach yoga studio claims former NBA star Dennis Rodman entered the business twice in two days this week and helped other people, including a former employee of the studio, steal more than $3,500 in merchandise, including a 400-pound amethyst crystal.

Ali Shah, who with his wife, Ariana, owns Vibes Hot Yoga at 100 W. Coast Hwy., said he watched the events unfold on live security video. Officers arrived about 10 minutes after the group departed and took a report of the incident, Vibes said.

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.

Vibes claims the four worked in coordination to distract an employee so they could steal clothes from displays. Rodman told TMZ on Thursday that he and his companions didn’t steal from the studio. “They gave us the clothes,” Rodman said. He told KCBS-TV Channel 2 that he was told, “Dennis, get anything you want. I said, ‘OK, great,’ ” Rodman said.

The employee who was on duty at the time told the Daily Pilot on Friday that the four told her the “ginormous geode amethyst crystal” that was for sale for $2,500 belonged to one of them and they were there to retrieve it. “They gave me false information,” she said.

On Wednesday, a different employee arrived to open the studio at 4:30 p.m. for afternoon and evening yoga classes and found two people outside. Surveillance video shows Rodman, whom the employee didn’t recognize, again trying to distract the employee while a woman grabbed three or four articles of merchandise, hangers and all. The two were in the studio for about 10 minutes, Shah said.

1. Wasn't his NBA nickname "The Worm"?

Kind of appropriate. He should stick to international relations and North Korean diplomacy.
