(Newser) – Adnan Ghalib, Britney Spears’ paparazzo ex, will see the inside of a courtroom on charges of assault with a deadly weapon and hit-and-run stemming from his alleged vehicular takedown of a process server, TMZ reports. A judge today ordered Ghalib to appear May 18 to set a trial date—and also approved a protective order against Ghalib on behalf of the process server.
