Jeopardy! host injured after chasing burglar in SF

SAN FRANCISCO — Question: Name the famous game show host who injured himself while chasing down a burglar at a San Francisco hotel?

Answer: Who is Alex Trebek.

The "Jeopardy!" host told KGO-TV that he was running after a burglar who entered his room and stole cash and a bracelet from his mother and other items early Wednesday when his Achilles tendon snapped.

Trebek says he also injured his other leg while falling down. The burglar stashed the items in a nearby ice machine.

San Francisco police Lt. Troy Dangerfield says investigators does not release the names of crime victims, but he did say that 56-year-old old Lucinda Moyers was arrested on suspicion of felony burglary and receiving stolen property.

All of the items except the cash and bracelet were recovered.

Trebek was on crutches while serving as host of the National Geographic World Championship at Google headquarters in Mountain View.
