Jason, who was married to Britney for only 55 hours following an impromptu Las Vegas wedding in 2005, is reportedly behind bars in Van Nuys, Calif.
According to the LA County Sheriff’s Department, the 27-year-old was arrested on December 3. Alexander is scheduled for release on December 9.
News of Alexander’s arrest comes during an extremely busy week for Britney, who is in the midst of promoting her new album, “Circus.” The pop star had a stunning performance on “Good Morning America” earlier this week, followed by a star-studded birthday party in New York City. She also taped an appearance for the Rockefeller Center Christmas tree-lighting ceremony, which aired on Wednesday night on NBC.
