BRITNEY Spears’ ex-husband Jason Alexander was arrested for “driving under the influence and drug possession” after he was seen at the Capitol riots.
Jason, who was married to Britney for just 55 hours back in 2004, was booked last week after he was spotted at the January 6 insurrection in Washington DC.
The 39-year-old was arrested on January 26 on three misdemeanor charges.
These were for allegedly driving under the influence, unlawful use of drug paraphernalia, and possession or casual exchange of a controlled substance, Page Six revealed.
At the time, Alexander had violated Tennessee’s implied consent law, which means that he declined to participate in a blood alcohol content test.
He was held on a $2,500 bond and was released a few hours later.
Jason has a court date scheduled for April 30.
Weeks before his arrest, Jason had been spotted in the Capitol Riots wearing a Trump hat.
The rally soon descended into chaos when MAGA supporters stormed the federal building, resulting in several deaths, injuries, and arrests.
Jason can be seen with a gray beard wearing a denim jacket over a khaki sweater and a Trump 45 beanie hat in a snap he captioned: “DC. Millions showed up.”
He also shared a video on social media with the message: “Where all my patriots I’m on the Trump train what will you tell your grandkids.”
While some followers left supportive comments underneath and told him to “stay safe,” others slammed the pop star’s ex from Kentwood, Louisiana.
One wrote: “And you sir are a d***head. No wonder Britney divorced your stupid a**.”
His photo was also shared on Twitter by fan account @BritneyHiatus.
One user replied: “Yes, I’m friends with him on Facebook. He goes HARD for Trump. Totally uneducated based on his grammar.”
Some branded him a “total embarrassment” and “trash,” while one also added: “I used to like him till I found out he’s a Trump supporter. No, thank you!”
He also previously shared a post which read: “I don’t wear a mask bc I don’t listen to tyrannical orders not voted on in a fair election.
“I don’t consent to the mark of the beast practices and I don’t value material shit and I’m locked and loaded ready to kill anyone or thing that trys to make me, now cowboy up all you bitches…. [sic].”
It is not known whether Jason was part of the mob that sieged the Capitol, and he is yet to update on his day from Washington.
Rioters stormed the building, forcing Members of Congress and Vice President Mike Pence to evacuate in bloody violent scenes which left six dead.
Britney’s ex was previously spotted at a #FreeBritney protest in Los Angeles amid her conservatorship battle late last year.
He claimed the pair had also reconnected via Facebook.
“Britney reached out to me three months ago. She found me via Facebook, messaged me and we got talking.
“She reached out because she wants us to have a relationship, whether that is friendship or more we will see.
“It was the first time we had talked for ten years. It brought up some new revelations that I wasn’t aware of.
“She’s ready to be out of her conservatorship. She basically said nothing has changed for her since the last time we spoke.
“The reason we stopped talking then was because I ended it because of the conservatorship, I was trying to do the right thing for her.
“We would speak on the phone and have intimate conversations but we couldn’t hang out, so I had to stop it.
“I told her I couldn’t wait for the conservatorship to end before seeing her and it’s a good thing I didn’t because it’s been 12 years now so I moved on with my life.
“But history comes around. She wasn’t sleeping well. I can’t imagine what it must be like being a prisoner in her own home.”
Britney is currently with Sam Asghari, whom she has been dating for the last four years.
