In the case of a Miami-area woman, beauty really does come at a price. Maria Elizabeth Chrysson has been dubbed the "Botox Bandit" after she failed to pay for more than $4,000 worth of cosmetic treatments.
According to the Sun-Sentinel.com , the 29-year-old was having money problems but that didn't stop her from writing checks for services she couldn't afford – they later bounced back in February.
"We were in the process of making restitution when the arrest occurred," said Chrysson's lawyer, Daniel Lurvey. "We will continue to attempt to resolve the matter of the alleged victim."
Earlier this week the brunette was worried about her mug shot, since she was "having a bad hair day," when she was nabbed at the Latin Cafe restaurant in Miami Beach.
Chrysson has been charged with three counts of grand theft and one count of scheming to defraud.
Concerned more with appearances than the seriousness of the charges against her, the woman asked police if she could log on to her Facebook account to see if people knew she was arrested – they declined.
Miami police spokesman Napier Velazquez told AOL News : "She likes the attention, apparently."
Meanwhile, the Floridian is also being investigated in a similar case where a woman walked out of a plastic surgery center in Fort Lauderdale without putting up the cash to cover a $3,300 bill for 50 Botox treatments without anesthetic and other procedures on July 23.
The Miami Herald reports that on Wednesday, Chrysson was ordered to remain under house arrest by a Miami-Dade judge and her lawyer expects her to post the $20,000 bond by the weekend.
The alleged beauty obsessed woman was also ordered to wear an ankle monitor until her trial gets underway.
