Joshua Corbett, Sandra Bullock's stalker, violated his probation and ended up in a police standoff.

TMZ reports that police went to Corbett's home to arrest him for violating the terms of his probation.

Corbett - who climbed a fence to get onto the star's property about 5 a.m. that day - was carrying photos of the actress and a notebook containing a letter to her, according to testimony presented at his preliminary hearing.

Corbett was previously convicted and sentenced for stalking Bullock after breaking into her West Los Angeles home back in 2014.

Sandra has not released a statement on the incident at the time of this posting.

In the 2014 hearing, Bullock could be heard in a terrifying 911 call telling the dispatcher, "I'm in my closet". He was dressed in dark clothes.

A Nikola spokeswoman said via email that the company won't provide additional comment on the lawsuit, which "speaks for itself". The facility where it will manufacture the trucks does not yet exist, and apparently, neither does the money for it.

He had been charged with felony stalking and burglary over the 2014 incident in which he broke into Bullock's house. "Please don't press charges". She was in her second floor bedroom and when she went to close her bedroom door and secure herself, she caught a glimpse of a man in a dark sweatshirt and dark trousers in her home. Corbett is now ordered to stay at least 200 feet from Bullock until the year 2022. A 10-year protective order also was issued.

It seems as if there was a good reason for Bullock's concern.

A LAPD spokesman would not confirm Corbett's identity, but said the suspect barricaded himself inside before taking his own life, according to BuzzFeed News.

At this time, it is still not clear what Corbett's violation was. Now, a S.W.A.T. team has been called to the scene and nearby streets have been closed down.

Joshua James Corbett, who spent nearly three years in jail after he was arrested in 2014 for breaking into Bullock's home while she was there, had been on supervised probation that required regular check-ins with the court.

A notebook with numerous pages outlining his intentions and how the acts would take place was found, as well as a number of illegal firearms at his house, including machine guns, assault rifles and explosive devices.
