Britney's Ex Surrenders to Face Assault Charges

A day after an arrest warrant was issued, Adnan Ghalib, the photographer ex-boyfriend of Britney Spears, found himself on the other end of the paparazzi lens.

Tracked by his media colleagues, Ghalib, 36, surrendered Wednesday to face felony charges for allegedly trying to run over a process server. He pleaded innocent in a Van Nuys Superior Court and was released on $110,000 bail.

He also went to the police station for formal booking on the warrant, and visited a bail bondsman.

On Tuesday, prosecutors charged Ghalib with assault with a deadly weapon, hit-and-run and battery, all worth up to seven years in prison if convicted. The charges include special allegations: use of a deadly weapon – a car – and great bodily injury.

The charges stem from a Feb. 11 incident at Ghalib’s apartment in which Ghalib allegedly tried to assault a process server by running into him. The process server was attempting to serve a restraining order obtained by Spears’s father.
