Celebs Who Have Experienced Terrifying Robberies
Talk about life or death!
With Friends Like These…
The night that McConaughey was robbed, he was apparently so intoxicated that he passed out on the bar. His friends probably thought they were doing him a solid when they carried him up to his room, but they forgot a key detail: closing the door. They left his hotel room door open, which allowed the thieves to come in and steal from the star.
Even though Alex Trebek isn’t a movie star, the long-running show Jeopardy has allowed him to become well-known. Well-known enough to be targeted by a robber, but Trebek didn’t take it lying down.
Trebek Fights Back
When a burglar tried to make off with a bracelet that Trebek’s mother had given him in addition to cash, Trebek sprang into action. He actually chased down the robber and assisted in her arrest.
Guess that bracelet had special meaning to him.
