Jul 27, 2011

Celebrity Crime Beat - Jeopardy host Alex Trebek was injured chasing a burglar and is on crutches after the incident.

KGO-TV reports he was hosting the National Geographic World Championship at Mountain View-based Google and hurt himself chasing an alleged crook in the middle of the night.

The report states:

Trebek says he was chasing a burglar at his hotel in San Francisco at 2:30 a.m. Wednesday when his Achilles tendon suddenly snapped. Trebek says when he fell, he also injured his other leg.

Trebek reassured the audience that despite the incident, he is OK.

The Today Show muses in a headline:

"I'll take bizarre injuries for $1,000, Alex"

More details.

In the contest, three teams of students are in the final round as they vie for the championship; the finalists are Russia, Chinese Taipei and Canada. Trebek is asking questions about physical, cultural and economic geography. The U.S. team tied for fourth and is not in the finals.
