Actress Sandra Bullock has been through a very terrifying ordeal. On Tuesday, details emerged that Bullock came face to face with her stalker in her own mansion. The actress woke up in the early morning hours on June 8 after hearing banging noises outside her bedroom. She went into the hallway to investigate and came upon her stalker Joshua Corbett. Bullock was faced with no choice but to lock herself in the bedroom and dial 911 for help.
Shortly after, Corbett was arrested by police at the star’s mansion. According to TMZ's story, when law enforcement arrived, the intruder started screaming, "Sandy, I'm sorry. Please don't press charges.” Corbett is facing charges including residential burglary and stalking. After the police searched Corbett’s home, he was also charged with 19 felony counts that include seven counts of possession of a machine gun, two counts of possession of an assault weapon and 10 counts of possession of a destructive device.
Police also found a notebook that contained numerous photographs of Bullock and handwritten notes that were describing her as his wife. Bullock came through a very terrifying event that might have seemed more like a movie rather than real life. The terrible situation could not have turned out better. Sandra was not injured and seemed to be doing well after the incident.
Bullock has obtained a restraining through the state of California that states if Corbett comes near Bullock’s home or tries to come in contact with her at any time, he will be arrested. Hopefully the restraining order will give her some peace of mind. According to CNN, Corbett pleaded not guilty to the residential burglary and stalking charges. After felony weapon charges were added, his bail was increased from $185,000 to $2.2 million. The charges carry a potential maximum of 12 years in prison if Corbett is convicted.
