Alex Trebek's Hotel Burglar Put Under Restraining Order
The 56-year-old woman must stay at least 150 yards away from the "Jeopardy!" host and his wife.
The woman who broke into Alex Trebek's hotel room early Wednesday morning has been put under a restraining order.
Lucinda Moyers, a 56-year-old two-time convicted thief, has been ordered to stay at least 150 yards from the Jeopardy! host and his wife, E! News reported.
Moyers was arrested Wednesday after breaking into Trebek's Ssn Francisco hotel room and stealing an unspecified amount of cash and a bracelet from his mother that he'd worn on the show every day for 20 years.
In the process of chasing her down, Trebek snapped his Achilles tendon, fell and then injured his other leg.
"I woke up and saw a figure in our hotel bedroom and I thought I was dreaming," he told Today of the incident. "I realized immediately that someone had been in the room, and I put on my underwear and ran down the hall to see if I could find her."
He eventually caught up to Moyers.
"She came out of the middle room where the ice machine is, and I said, 'What were you doing in our room?' She said, 'I wasn't in your room,' so I said, 'What were you doing?' She said, 'I was visiting friends.' I said, 'No you weren't.'"
Later the same day, he kept his obligation to host the National Geographic World Championship at Google's Mountain View offices. He used a wheelchair to enter the auditorium and leaned on the podium while quizzing contestants.
Trebek will undergo surgery on Friday. He expects to be in a cast for about six weeks.
Moyers, who denies breaking into Trebek's room, was booked on felony burglary and possession of stolen property. She has been twice convicted of residential burglary, in 1990 and again the following year.
San Francisco Superior Court Judge Jeff Ross has increased her bail to $625,000, with an arraignment set for Monday.
