NORMAN, Okla. -- Oklahoma basketball player Jenna Plumley was arrested and charged with trying to steal makeup from a Wal-Mart store.

Plumley, a starting guard, was stopped by security personnel Monday and signed a ticket that will require her to appear in municipal court, police said. Police spokeswoman Jennifer Newell said the petty larceny charge is a misdemeanor involving theft of items worth less than $500.

Plumley has five days to schedule an arraignment. If convicted, the charge carries a fine of $50 to $750 and up to 60 days in jail.

Coach Sherri Coale will handle any punishment internally, Sooners spokesman Jared Thompson said.

Plumley started all 31 games last season and averaged 7.8 points.
