Britney Spears' Ex Faces Assault Charge

Prosecutors have charged Britney Spears' former boyfriend, Adnan Ghalib, with three felonies including assault with a deadly weapon.

Ghalib allegedly struck a process server with his car outside his apartment on Jan. 30. The server was attempting to deliver papers notifying him that Britney Spears' father and attorneys were seeking a restraining order against him.

According to a news release, the process server clung to the hood of Ghalib's car to avoid being pinned and broke his wrist. The 36-year-old paparazzo, who has not yet been arrested, also faces battery and hit-and-run charges.

A current phone number for Ghalib could not be located. He did not appear for a Monday hearing on the restraining order.
