A California judge ruled Monday that there was enough evidence against a man who suddenly married Britney Spears, who turned out not to be invited to a pop star’s wedding to settle the crime of persecution.
After a two-hour preliminary hearing, Ventura County Judge David Worley ruled 40-year-old Jason Allen Alexander should be taken into custody on charges of crime, vandalism and personal injury, court records show. .
An innocent lawsuit against all charges was filed by one of Alexander’s lawyers, who did not attend and remained in custody.
On June 9, Spears married longtime friend Sam Asghari at her home in Thousand Oaks, California for several guests, including Selena Gomez, Drew Barrymore, Paris Hilton and Madonna.
Alexander, Spears’ childhood friend, whom he married for less than three days in 2004, appeared at the ceremony uninvited to the house and broadcast his attack live on Instagram. Richard Eubler, the guardian of the Spears service, testified at Monday’s hearing that Alexander had entered his house and crawled through the locked door of Spears’ room when he was inside, according to various media reports.
Eubler said Alexander also tried to enter the grounds in the days before the wedding.
Alexander’s lawyer Sandra Bisignani claimed that there was no evidence that she intended to kill Spears.
