Britney Spears’ ex-husband has been arrested and charged with four offenses after being arrested at her Los Angeles home on Thursday.
Jason Alexander, 40, was charged with two counts of misdemeanor battery, one count of misdemeanor vandalism, and one count of misdemeanor trespassing in Ventura County.
The Ventura County Sheriff’s Department said that private security officers detained Alexander after 2 PM at the Spears’ home before Spears’ wedding to Sam Asghari.
Deputies arrived shortly and arrested Alexander for an outstanding warrant from Napa.
“He was detained, handcuffed, and I’m pleased to report, arrested. Fortunately, Britney is safe. I’m livid by this security breach and am working closely with law enforcement to ensure he is aggressively prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law,” Mathew S. Rosengart, an attorney for Spears, told CNN.
Details of how Alexander gained access to the property have not been disclosed.
Spears married Alexander in Las Vegas in 2004 but had the marriage annulled 55 hours later.
