Actor Alec Baldwin, pictured here with wife Hilaria Thomas at the 64th Primetime Emmy Awards, can rest easy knowing his accused stalker is now behind bars.
The woman accused of stalking Alec Baldwin is behind bars.
Genevieve Sabourin, who has insisted that she had a romantic relationship with the 30 Rock star, was arrested and jailed for as-yet undisclosed reasons following a hearing this morning in New York Supreme Court, the Manhattan District Attorney's Office confirms to E! News.
"Why am I being arrested?" Sabourin was heard saying as officers cuffed her before she could leave the courtroom.
During the hearing, a new attorney was appointed to Sabourin after her previous lawyer asked to be removed, telling the judge that she was behind on payments and wasn't taking counsel's advice about not speaking to the media about her case.
Sabourin, who met Baldwin on the set of The Adventures of Pluto Nash roughly a decade ago, was arrested in April on suspicion of aggravated harassment and stalking.
She was released on her own recognizance but the judge issued a restraining order requiring the French-Canadian actress to stay away from the Emmy winner, whom she claims proposed to her via email days after he announced his engagement to his current wife, Hilaria.
While she's barred from trying to contact Baldwin, Sabourin has tweeted about Thomas and her ongoing legal issues.
Before court this morning, Sabourin tweeted, "On my way for a last meeting at my lawyer office on 57street, then we will go to court ( be at the trial around 11:30)."
Also before her arrest, she wrote, "Alec Baldwin wife Hilaria REAL name:Hilary Hayward-Thomas.LIED wile call 911 on me w her false name.I'll file 4felony."
