The source, a spokeswoman from the Los Angeles County District Attorney's Office, also told E! News that Deshon could face 22 years in prison.
According to several reports, Michaels was at home with her child and nurse watching television when her handbag containing her car keys and a very expensive watch were stolen Tuesday night. When she woke up the next morning, she discovered the theft of both her handbag and her car outside.
When police spotted Deshon driving her Bentley GT on Wednesday, they began a pursuit, and he crashed the luxury car into a light pole. Deshon fled the scene, was caught and scuffled with police, and was finally arrested, prosecutors told E! News.
The day after the arrest, Michaels tweeted to her fans: "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."

Since appearing on "The Doctors", she and the show's other co-hosts have all been nominated for a Daytime Emmy Award for Outstanding Talk Show Host and for Outstanding Informative Talk Show.
