(Newser) – Alec Baldwin's accused stalker will be spending 30 days in jail ... not for the alleged stalking, but for angering the judge at the stalking trial. Things went a bit nuts in the courtroom yesterday, with Genevieve Sabourin yelling at a crying Baldwin as he testified. The judge threatened her with contempt of court; today, Sabourin continued her outbursts, this time interrupting her own lawyer, and the judge followed through, holding her in contempt and ordering her to 30 days in the slammer, TMZ reports.
