Shirley Jones' Hubby -- The New Winona?

12/25/2008 4:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Marty IngelsMarty Ingels -- the husband of the legendary Partridge Family matriarch Shirley Jones -- is under investigation for allegedly shoplifting a $500 hat.

It happened at Baron Hats, a custom store that has made hats for the "Indiana Jones" and "Pirates of the Caribbean" movies. We're told Ingels had an ongoing dispute with the store over a certain hat.

Ingels allegedly went into the store on Monday, got into a tiff with a clerk, picked up the hat in dispute and then walked out of the store.

Ingels was in such a rush he left his cane behind.

Marty tells us the clerk is the one who put the store hat in his pile. He says he returned it late Tuesday afternoon.

By the way, there's a surveillance tape which shows exactly what happened. We got a copy and will put it on TMZ.com first thing tomorrow morning.

Let me know when the cops write paper on him, otherwise it sounds like a small claims issue---oh wait, he returned the hat for the cane right? WTF? His own Cane? The guy has been like mental for 2 decades and hidden well from the public...he was funny and popular once, now seems drug induced and a potential teenage girl chaser.

This hangers-on has spent his life trying to bring down his Oscar winning actress. Heck, I remember when they had a yard sale he was out showing off his wife's Oscar. How tacky! I'll never know why she has kept him around all of these years.

Marty Ingels did the voice of Autocat in the animated series "Chattanooga Cats" A kind of parody of the Partridge Family by using drug addicted animated cats. - Chattanooga Cats had a musical hit with "Mother May I."

Winona is a druggie who recently had to be hospitalized for OD-ing on a flight to England.

Next while in Spain, she conveniently "lost" expensive jewelry which had been loaed to her for a photoshoot.

Marty was in a silly dispute over a hat which sounds like an epsode from CUrb Your Enthusiasm. Big difference. Leave him alone.
