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.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
