Britney Spears' ex-husband, Jason Alexander, has pleaded not guilty after attempting to crash the pop singer's wedding to Sam Asghari last week.

Alexander, who was not in court and appeared via video wearing his inmate uniform with an orange undershirt, entered the plea on Monday. A judge has set his bail at $100,000. The judge also ordered that Alexander must turn in any firearms. It is unclear if he has any.

Alexander was arrested Thursday at 2:32 p.m. PST and booked the same day at 7:32 p.m. In addition, an emergency protective order was requested by Spears and Asghari's representatives at the time, and it was forwarded to a Ventura County superior judge who previously issued a no contact order.

On Monday, the judge ordered Alexander to stay 100 yards away from Spears. The order is in place for three years.

Authorities previously confirmed to Fox News Digital that Alexander was arrested on "two counts of misdemeanor battery, one count of misdemeanor vandalism and one count of misdemeanor trespassing, in addition to the out of county warrant," which involves grand theft. The judge also hit Alexander with a felony stalking charge.

"Don't put your hands on me. Please don't put your hands on me," Alexander told security before asking, "Hey, where's Britney?"

He then walked into the tent being set up for the event and said, "I'm her first husband. I'm here to crash her wedding."

Alexander and security did get into a physical altercation at some point, according to the Ventura County Sheriff's Department.

The annulment stated that the pop star "lacked understanding of her actions, to the extent that she was incapable of agreeing to the marriage."
