Days after Jason Alexander tried to crash ex-wife Britney Spears' wedding with Sam Asghari, he has been slapped with criminal stalking charges by a US court. Jason and Britney were married in 2004 for less than three days before the marriage was annulled. 

According to reports, Jason Alexander pleaded not guilty to the allegation, as well as misdemeanour counts of trespassing, vandalism, and violence, in Ventura County court.

Alexander was still jailed and appeared in court by video conference. A judge set his bond at $100,000 and ordered him to stay at least 100 yards away from Spears for the next three years.
