CLEARWATER, Fla. — Police in Florida say a Michigan tourist has returned a wrestling shoe autographed by Hulk Hogan that she took from a store in Clearwater.

Authorities say the woman called the professional wrestling icon's Clearwater Beach store on Thursday, saying she wanted to return the shoe.

A security camera captured images of the Sunday evening theft but it wasn't until Tuesday that employees realized the shoe — valued at $5,500 — was missing. Employees watched the security film and called police.

According to Clearwater police, the woman says she "had done a stupid thing." Though she had returned to Michigan, she had left the shoe behind and arranged for three people she met while in Clearwater to return it to the store.

No charges have been filed, but an investigation continues.
