Corbett has been charged with "one felony count each of first-degree residential burglary, stalking and possession of a machine gun," according to the Los Angeles District Attorney's Office, via E!News.

A spokesperson for the Los Angeles Police Department revealed that the loaded machine gun was found in Corbett's home after a search warrant was granted.

The local authorities responded to a 911 call and arrested the stalker, was described as a "hot prowler suspect," at approximately 6.30 a.m.
