Britney Spears’ ex, Jason Alexander, is behind bars after the shocking events that took place at her home just hours before her fairytale wedding to Sam Asghari on Thursday.
As CrimeOnline previously reported, California cops responded to a trespassing call at the Thousand Oaks home of Britney Spears at 2:07 p.m. on Thursday. Police were called after Jason Alexander, 40, barged onto the property while doing a live feed on Instagram.
Police soon discovered that Britney’s unemployed childhood friend had outstanding felony warrants in Napa County.
The warrants stem from a 2015 complaint filed by a woman who claims that Alexander stole a sapphire and diamond tennis bracelet from her bedroom. Alexander was living in her home for about a month when she noticed the $2,000 bracelet missing. After originally denying he took the bracelet, Alexander finally fessed up that he pawned it for $180.
The stolen bracelet was recovered by police and returned to the woman. A warrant for Alexander was issued. TMZ reports.
According to court records obtained by CrimeOnline, Alexander was arrested at 2:32 pm Thursday and booked into the Ventura County Jail at 7:32 pm.
In addition to the felony charges of grand theft and selling stolen property related to the stolen bracelet, the troubled 40-year-old now faces misdemeanor charges of battery, trespassing, and vandalism. He is eligible for release with bail set at $22,500.
According to Fox News Digital, the battery charge stems from a physical altercation that occurred between Alexander and security outside of Britney’s home. During the scuffle, an item valued at under $400 was broken, resulting in a charge of vandalism.
Alexander reportedly had a box cutter on his person, but Ventura County Sheriff’s Department Capt. Cameron Henderson said the “knife was in no way involved with the incident.”
Britney and Sam filed for an emergency protective order from Alexander on Friday. He is now required to stay at least 100 yards away from the newly married couple, as well as their home.
Alexander is set to appear in court on June 13.
