While Britney Spears was recovering from her circus-filled 27th birthday in New York, an old pal of hers was getting comfy in a jail cell in California.
Brit's first husband, Jason Alexander, who she married in Las Vegas on a whim in 2004, was picked up by police on Wednesday and arrested for a probation violation. He's currently hanging out at the Pitchess Detention Center in Castaic, California.
Stemming from a 2006 DUI arrest, Brit's 55-hour hubby was ordered to complete an alcohol education program. A judge sentenced him to 10 days in jail Wednesday after he didn't show up for his appointment at the county morgue. The judge also ordered him to readmit to a six-month alcohol program.
10 days? That's like 5 whole marriages to Brit!
