Jeopardy! host Alex Trebek faces lawsuit from woman who says his dog chased her into traffic

Alex Trebek has been named in a lawsuit from a woman who claims his unrestrained dog put her in grave danger.

Ketai told the court in the docs she filed Tuesday that as his dog chased her ‘suddenly and without warning,’ she began to scream and wound up falling into the street, where a massive SUV was barreling in her direction.
