Former women’s tennis champion Jennifer Capriati is facing arrest in Florida after she allegedly struck her ex-boyfriend Ivan Brannan at a Palm Beach gym, according to a new report.
The arrest warrant is being sought by North Palm Beach County police, who are considering charges of battery and stalking in connection with the incident at Oxygen Health and Fitness gym, Gossip Extra has reported, citing a police report.
Jennifer Capriati, 36, is accused of getting into an argument with ex-boyfriend Ivan Brannan, a former Florida State University golfer, on February 14 near the men’s locker room of the gym.
She allegedly hit Ivan Brannan’s chest with her fists several times before a yoga instructor intervened. Ivan Brannan then ran into the men’s locker room and called 911.
Jennifer Capriati fled the scene in her car but was stopped by police a few miles away. They allowed her to go at the time.
She has hired lawyer Steve Sessa, who declined to comment on the story.
Ivan Brannan asked the Palm Beach County Circuit Court for a restraining order against Jennifer Capriati last year.
The judge declined the request.
Ivan Brannan claims Jennifer Capriati called his work place more than 100 times in a single day last year.
He also says she sped through a security gate at his condo building in her Porsche after a guard declined her requests to be let in.
The North Palm Beach Police Department did not respond to a request for comment on this story.
Jennifer Capriati was only 10 when she made her Sports Illustrated debut and by 13, she was on the cover.
Jennifer Capriati won Olympic gold in 1992 at age 16 and two years later, she was out of the game and into legal trouble when she was cited for shoplifting and arrested for marijuana possession.
