CLEARWATER, Fla. (AP) -- Florida authorities are investigating the theft of an autographed wrestling shoe once worn by Hulk Hogan.
Clearwater police reported Wednesday that the shoe -- valued at $5,500 -- was stolen from the professional wresting icon's Clearwater Beach shop.
A report states that four white females -- possibly from Michigan on spring break -- came into Hogan's Beach Shop Sunday evening. Four minutes later, a large statue of Hogan fell over outside, and store workers were temporarily distracted.
Police say that's when a woman grabbed the shoe. Employees didn't realize the shoe was missing until Tuesday. They discovered the theft when they reviewed the store's security footage.
