The man who was convicted of stalking Oscar-winner Sandra Bullock is reportedly in a standoff with police at a Los Angeles home.
As CrimeOnline previously reported, Joshua Corbett was given five years probation and ordered to seek treatment at a mental health facility in 2014 after he was convicted of breaking into Bullock’s home — while she was there. Bullock made a frantic 911 call to police while she hid from her stalker, who stood directly outside her bedroom door at one point during the home invasion.
In July 2017, Corbett was released from the mental health facility earlier than expected after doctor deemed him healthy enough to return to public life. At that time, Bullock’s attorney asked for a permanent restraining order against Corbett from judge. Corbett is now ordered to stay at least 200 feet from Bullock until the year 2022.
TMZ reports that police went to Corbett’s home to arrest him for violating the terms of his probation. In response, Corbett reportedly barricaded himself in the home and threatened to harm himself.
According to the report, SWAT officers have been called to the scene. It is not yet know how Corbett is accused of doing that violates his restraining order.
This is a developing story. CrimeOnline will provide further updates when more information is available.
