Alex Trebek Injured While Chasing Burglar
Early Wednesday morning in San Francisco while staying at the Marriott Marquis, the Jeopardy host chased down a burglar on foot injuring himself in the process.
Trebek was in town to host the National Geographic World Championship at Google headquarters.
It is alleged that 56-year-old Lucinda Moyers broke into Trebek’s hotel room and stole cash and a bracelet given to him by his mother. The star reportedly chased her on foot, injuring his Achilles tendon in the process, according to local TV outlet ABC7.
Hours later, Trebek went on to host the National Geographic show.
Moyers was not a guest at the hotel, authorities are investigating how she gained access into his room.
