Former Miss USA pageant queen Lu Parker was busted for theft.

Parker — who won the contest in 1994 while representing South Carolina — was caught stealing a pricey pair of headphones at Los Angeles International Airport on Wednesday, TMZ reported.

 The 44-year-old, who also works as an L.A. news anchor, reportedly snatched a pair of $200 headphones — belonging to an LAPD detective — from the TSA screening area, according to the gossip site.

Police caught Parker on a security camera and pulled her off her flight before take-off.

Parker could face a charge of misdemeanor theft due to the cost of the gear, TMZ reports.

The former beauty queen has worked as a news anchor at local L.A. news station KTLA since 2005, famously dating the city's mayor Antonio Villaraigosa.

Parker has received two Emmys for her work as a television journalist. The 44-year-old has also played a journalist on TV in series like "Major Crimes," "Lie To Me," "Monk" and "Days of our Lives."

This is the first time Parker has found herself publicly in trouble with the law.
