There's a new twist to the story of the woman who was caught on tape falling into a mall fountain while texting.Cathy Cruz Marrero, 49, was threatening legal action against the mall, saying security was too busy laughing to help her. But it turns out she has legal problems of her own.

Marrero is being accused of identity theft. Court documents show Marrero used a co-worker's credit card to purchase more than $5,000 in merchandise at Target and Zales.

She also has four other convictions on her record for retail theft and a hit-and-run accident.

When it comes to the mall incident, Marrero's attorney said she no longer plans to sue, but instead wants an apology.
