Newark Woman Held For Alleged Cyber Threats Against Kardashians

NEWARK ( -- Federal authorities on Thursday announced the arrest of a Newark woman they accused of keeping up a little too closely with the Kardashians — cyberstalking and hacking TV personality Kris Jenner, her family and two assistants.

Christina Elizabeth Bankston, 36, of Newark, California, was arrested at her residence Thursday morning by special agents with the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

Bankston is a nurses aide, officials said. She was arrested pursuant to a 15-count indictment that was returned by a federal grand jury on July 26 and unsealed Wednesday. Bankston is scheduled to make her first appearance Friday morning in United States District Court in Oakland.
