Britney Spears' ex-husband Jason Alexander arrested after crashing her wedding to Sam Asghari

Britney Spears' ex-husband Jason Alexander has been arrested after attempting to crash the pop star's wedding to Sam Asghari Thursday.

"He has been detained handcuffed and arrested for his disgusting criminal misconduct," Spears' attorney Mathew Rosengart wrote in a statement to USA TODAY, adding that he thanks "the Ventura County Sheriff’s department for their good and prompt work."

"I look forward to working closely with law enforcement to ensure he is prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law, as he must be," Rosengart continued. "Fortunately, Britney is safe."

In video of the incident shared by TMZ, which the outlet reports Alexander broadcast live on Instagram, Spears' ex-husband approaches a security guard and says he's arrived to crash the ceremony. 

"Britney Spears invited me here," Alexander, 40, says of Spears, whom he wed in Las Vegas in 2004 before their union was annulled 55 hours later. "She's my first wife, my only wife. I'm her first husband. I'm here to crash the wedding, because nobody's here but Sam, so where the (expletive)'s the family?"

A photo shared by TMZ appears to show Alexander on the ground as he's restrained by security.

Ventura County Sheriff’s Capt. Cameron Henderson said officers responded to a trespassing call after 2 p.m. Thursday. He says Alexander was detained at the site of the ceremony.

Henderson says Alexander was arrested after officers noticed he had a warrant for his arrest in another county.

Authorities are still investigating the reported trespassing.

Earlier Thursday, a source close to the couple confirmed to USA TODAY that Spears, 40, and Asghari, 28, planned to tie the knot later in the day.

The singer and personal trainer are saying "I do" in front of 100 people with her brother, Bryan, among the guests, TMZ reported. Her mother Lynn, father Jamie and sister Jamie Lynn will not be there, according to the outlet.

The soon-to-be newlyweds got engaged in September, days after Spears’ father Jamie filed a petition with a Los Angeles judge seeking to end the conservatorship, a legal arrangement that has given him control over the pop star’s estate since 2008.

Legally, Spears could have gotten married, but under the conservatorship (which was terminated in November after 13 years), the wedding had to be approved as with other major life decisions.

Announcing her engagement in September, Spears shared a video on Instagram showing off her four-carat ring. "I can't (expletive) believe it," the "Oops!...I Did It Again" singer captioned the clip along with six engagement ring emojis and six exclamation points.

"Look at that, do you like it?" Asghari asked of the ring in the short video, to which Spears replied, "Yes!"

After annulling her marriage to Alexander, Spears married her backup dancer Kevin Federline, with whom she shares two sons, Sean Preston, 16, and Jayden James, 15, later in 2004. Spears filed for divorce in 2006, which was granted the following year.

In September, Alexander, who was Spears' childhood friend before becoming her first husband, was arrested for a misdemeanor attempted air security violation, according to online records obtained by USA TODAY.

According to the affidavit, officers were notified of a breach at Nashville International airport after a man who had already gone through a TSA check was allegedly seen entering a non-secure area of the airport then returning to the secure area without going back through TSA. The man was identified as Alexander.

Alexander addressed his arrest on Instagram Live at the time, calling it an "inconvenience."

"You end up in handcuffs for something stupid," he said. "The media and police are not your friends."
