The woman who allegedly burglarized the San Francisco hotel room of Alex Trebek — leading to an injury for the “Jeopardy!” host — has offered up a surprising defense, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Linda Moyers reportedly said she is a prostitute, and was at the Marriott Marquis hotel on business.
Trebek reportedly chased the woman at the hotel after she took off running, injuring his Achilles’ tendon during the pursuit, as previously reported.
A bracelet, $650 in cash and other items were allegedly stolen from Trebek’s room.
Moyers has pleaded not guilty to residential burglary and possession of stolen property, and remains in custody, the story says.
