Gerjuan Deshon Harmon allegedly swiped the keys to Michaels' luxury Bentley from her Los Angeles estate on Tuesday night (03Jul12) while the exercise expert was watching TV with her child.

The former The Biggest Loser trainer realised her car and a number of personal items had gone missing the following morning and reported the crime to police. The vehicle was tracked down hours later and Harmon was busted after crashing it into a light pole.

On Friday (06Jul12), he was charged with multiple counts, including first-degree burglary with a person present, grand theft of personal property, grand theft auto and hit-and-run driving. Harmon was also hit with two crimes for resisting an executive officer, reports Eonline.com.

Michaels has assured fans she's fine after the incident, taking to Twitter.com and posting: "Hi guys - thanks so much for all your concern regarding the burglary. We are all fine & that's what counts. Stuff is just stuff after all."
