LAS VEGAS (AP) — Authorities say a 53-year-old man who claims a British royal title is jailed in Las Vegas ahead of court hearings on criminal charges that could put him in prison for up to 14 years.

Alexander Montagu-Manchester is due in court Tuesday to face a burglary charge in a break-in at a home in July.

He’s also set to appear in court Wednesday in a separate false police report case that led to his arrest Aug. 12.

Montagu-Manchester then faces a judge Thursday in a misdemeanor 2015 driving under the influence of drugs case.

He tells police he’s the 13th Duke of Manchester.

The title dates back 950 years to the time of William the Conqueror.

Montagu-Manchester is represented by court-appointed public defenders.

They did not immediately respond to messages.
