Lucinda Moyers, Jeopardy! Burglar, Back in Court

In jeopardy of jail time
The woman who allegedly tried to rip off Jeopardy! host Alex Trebek while he was asleep in his San Francisco hotel room last week is scheduled to be back in court today, where she will be arraigned.

Lucinda Moyers, 56, was busted on Tuesday stealing cash, jewelry, and other items from Trebek's hotel room at the Marriott Marquis where he and his wife, Jean, were staying. On Thursday, a judge set Moyers' bail at $625,000 and ordered her to stay at least 150 feet away from the Trebeks, according to media outlets.

Moyers allegedly entered Trebek's hotel room at about 2:30 a.m. and stole a bunch of valuable items and money. Trebek woke up during the burglary and chased Moyers down the hallway. She tossed some of the items into an ice machine on his floor.

But during the chase, the 71-year-old gameshow host lost his stride and fell, snapping an Achilles tendon. He's now on crutches -- and Moyers is in jeopardy of going to jail.
