Actress Jessica Alba is apologizing to the people of Oklahoma City for defacing parts of the city by reportedly plastering posters of great white sharks on electrical boxes, a bridge and a United Way billboard. "I got involved in something I should have had no part of," Alba said in a written statement, sent to the city's local newspaper,The Oklahoman, and to ABC News.

"I realize that I should have used better judgment, and I regret not thinking things through before I made a spontaneous and ill-advised decision to let myself get involved with the people behind this campaign," the statement continued. "I sincerely apologize to the citizens of Oklahoma City and to the United Way for my involvement in this incident."

Oklahoma City police are investigating Alba after photos of the starlet gluing the posters at night and with her hands up in the air flashing the "victory" sign were initially posted, then removed from the Web site last week.
