Adnan Ghalib Charged With Felony Assault, Hit-And-Run

Britney Spears' paparazzo ex-boyfriend, Adnan Ghalib, has been charged with felony assault with a deadly weapon and hit-and-run, the Los Angeles County District Attorney's office confirmed to Access Hollywood.

The charges stem from a January 30 incident, when Ghalib allegedly "rammed" his car into a man attempting to serve a restraining order against him.

"The victim was allegedly serving a temporary restraining order obtained by Spears's father on paparazzi photographer Adnan Ghalib's Encino apartment complex. Ghalib allegedly got into his car and drove it toward the victim," according to a statement from the DA's office.

"To avoid being penned against a trash truck, the victim allegedly jumped on the hood of Ghalib's Mercedes and hung on as the defendant swerved the car," the statement continued. "The victim later fell off, breaking his wrist and sustaining other injuries. The defendant allegedly drove away without stopping."
