LAS VEGAS (AP) — An Australian man who claims to hold a British royal title has been ordered by a judge to remain jailed in Las Vegas pending the resolution of multiple felony charges.
Alexander Montagu-Manchester said nothing Tuesday as he appeared in court in shackles.
Court-appointed defense lawyer Justin Glasgow says he hadn’t asked his client about his lineage. No plea was entered for Montagu-Manchester at the hearing.
Police say the 53-year-old Montagu-Manchester identified himself as Britain’s 13th Duke of Manchester. That’s a title dating back 950 years.
Montagu-Manchester was released on bail in July after he was arrested on a home break-in burglary charge.
He was jailed again Aug. 12 following his arrest on a false police report charge alleging he contacted a story that his wife wounded him with a knife.
