Looks like Kevin Federline's subpoena-serving assault on Britney Spears' inner circle has taken a new, violent turn.
That's when Aaron Cohen, a process server for K-Fed's lawyer, Mark Vincent Kaplan, attempted to serve a subpoena to Spears pal Sam Lufti... only to have his car rammed into by Lufti himself.
A source tells Us Weekly that Sam Lufti, seeking to avoid being served, spotted Cohen's parked car, drove into it and fled the scene.
The L.A. Police Department said in a statement:
"On August 27, at about 6 p.m., the LAPD received a radio call of a traffic collision in the area of Beethoven and Venice Blvd. in the Mar Vista Area of Los Angeles. Upon officers arrival, an investigation revealed that an Assault with a Deadly Weapon (with a vehicle) occurred. A police report was taken and the suspect was a male, driving a Silver Mercedes SL500. Pacific Division Detectives are handling the case and an investigation is ongoing."
No arrests have been made in the case.
Meanwhile, a man identified as "Sam" (not named as Sam Lufti) and described by the Britney Spears fan site BreatheHeavy.com as "an all around good guy and friend to Britney" claims that it was Aaron Cohen who initiated last night's violence.
In an x17 video, Sam pleads innoncence, saying "We were on our way home, and right before I pulled into my driveway, I was surrounded by three of their cars. From the rear, from the side, from the front, the car in the front rammed into me, the car in the back hit, the car in the side scraped... the damage on the car speaks for itself... I was afraid for my safety."
Britney and K-Fed aren't the only ones fighting.
Still, a source close to the case casts doubt on "Sam's" story, telling Us Weekly, "Whomever [the subpoena] was for, if they had nothing to hide, why not just allow yourself to be served and go to court to speak the truth. What exactly are they hiding?"
A good question. Speaking of getting served, Britney Spears' former manager Larry Rudolph - who has admitted trying to avoid subpoenaed in her custody battle - has spoken out, telling That Other Blog in a statement:
"Despite the things that Britney Spears has publicly said about our relationship in the past, I truly understand where she's coming from and why she's said the things she said about me post-rehab and I don't take it personally. As her former manager, I know and understand Britney better than anyone, I know what makes her tick and I understand everything she's going through. With that being said, my loyalty will always stay strong with Britney. I have consulted with my lawyers and I do understand that eventually the time will come when they will find me, but until then, I'm trying to avoid being brought into this mess. She's going through so much right now and I wish Britney the best."
