HARTFORD, Conn. (WTNH)–A female wrestler, known for her work with the WWE, was arrested on shoplifting charges on Monday.

Police said 25-year old Tenille Dashwood, known by WWE fans as “Emma,” was stopped at Wal-Mart on Monday afternoon for allegedly stealing an iPad Mini case, worth about $20.

Dashwood was charged with larceny, and released.

She is from Australia, and lives in Winter Park, Florida.

The WWE was in Hartford Monday for a show at the XL Center.

According to the Hartford Courant, Dashwood’s lawyer said she was using the self-checkout machine at Wal-Mart when she bought about $30 worth of items but forgot to pay for the case.

This is Emma’s bio from the WWE’s official website:

“A Diva who dances like no one’s watching and can pack a mean punch, Emma boasts a wacky attitude and quirky confidence that would make even the boldest men raise an eyebrow. This lively Diva is known for punctuating her victories with a unique dance that has left the WWE Universe befuddled. But Emma insists its significance is simple: “It’s my victory dance,” she says. “It reminds me to celebrate the fact that I am, indeed, a winner.”
