Pop princess Britney Spears’ ex-boyfriend Adnan Ghalib may be jailed for up to seven years if he is convicted of trying to run over a court official, who was attempting to serve a restraining order obtained by the singer’s father.

Ghalib, 36, a Birmingham-born photographer, is alleged to have driven his car at the man while he was trying to serve a restraining order to keep him away from Spears, reports the Daily Star.

The court official jumped onto the bonnet of the Mercedes-Benz to avoid being pinned against a rubbish truck, and fell off and broke his wrist when the car was turned.

Los Angeles District Attorney’s spokeswoman Jane Robison alleged that Ghalib drove off without stopping, and left the official to his injuries.

The photographer was being served with the papers after he allegedly breached an order that prevents him from being within 500 yards of the Toxic singer.

Ghalib has now been charged with assault with a deadly weapon, hit-and-run and battery.
