(Newser) – Britney Spears distanced herself from two employees arrested in Pittsburgh yesterday for aggravated assault, E! reports. “Neither of the men involved are employees of the tour or Ms Spears,” read a statement posted on her blog—the men worked for a contracted company. “Britney Spears…does not support or tolerate this type of behavior.” The two men allegedly assaulted police officers who were breaking up their fight with another man.
