Less than 24 hours after a warrant for his arrest was issued, Adnan Ghalib has turned himself. Charged with three felonies, he went to court and pled not guilty.
Ghalib allegedly struck a process server - who was attempting to hand him a subpoena to appear in the Britney Spears restraining order case - with his Mercedes.
The L.A. County D.A. has charged Ghalib with felony assault with a deadly weapon, felony battery and felony hit and run. He is free after posting $110,000 bail.
Lawyers for Britney Spears went to L.A. Superior Court January 20 to get temporary restraining orders against Ghalib and her former manager, Sam Lutfi.
Jamie Spears, who serves as his daughter's conservator, says Lutfi and Ghalib were sending threatening text messages and trying to take control of Britney.
There was also a prepaid phone one of the two is said to have given her. Papa Jamie went ballistic when he overheard Britney communicating with Adnan.
Earlier this month, the LAPD confirmed that a report was filed on Ghalib alleging he committed assault with a deadly weapon - his Mercedes - February 11.A source said the court officer attempted to serve Ghalib the restraining order papers, but when spotted, the paparazzo "turned his wheels towards the agent and hit him with his vehicle," causing the officer to fall "on the hood of the car while Adnan was speeding and zig zagging in the alley for 30 to 40 yards."
Adnan Ghalib allegedly fled the scene, the source said, and the officer spent the night in the ER with a fractured wrist and other injuries.
Britney Spears and Ghalib hooked up in late 2007 - around the time she was hospitalized against her own will twice for severe mental health issues.
Meanwhile, Britney's lawyers are currently at L.A. Superior Court arguing whether or not to make the restraining order against Ghalib and Lutfi permanent.
Britney's former security guard testified that Lutfi sent late-night texts to Spears' hairstylist until Britney contacted Lutfi, via the guard, to ask him to stop.
Jamie Spears alleges Sam Lutfi violated the restraining order.
