Margo Adams, the former girlfriend of Boston Red Sox third baseman Wade Boggs, was arrested Sunday for allegedly trying to shoplift a $258 coat, authorities said.

Adams, 33, was held by security officers at the Nordstrom department store in the South Coast Plaza shopping mall at 4:15 p.m. Sunday, police Lt. Alan Kent said. Adams was taken to the police substation at the mall, where she was cited for petty theft, a misdemeanor, Kent said.This was not Adams' first run-in with the department store.

In January, she pleaded guilty to eight counts of using an El Dorado Bank MasterCard that wasn't hers to run up $4,871 in charges at Nordstrom, Knott's Berry Farm and other businesses.
