NORTH PALM BEACH, Fla. (AP) -- Former tennis star Jennifer Capriati is facing battery and stalking charges stemming from an alleged altercation with her ex-boyfriend on Valentine's Day.
Palm Beach County court records show Capriati was issued a summons Wednesday to appear before a judge April 17 on the two charges. She has not been arrested. No attorney for Capriati was listed.
North Palm Beach police say Capriati's ex-boyfriend, Ivan Brannan, was working out at a gym Feb. 14 when the 36-year-old Capriati approached him and yelled at him.
Brannan told police that he tried to get away by walking to the men's locker room, but Capriati blocked his path and punched him in the chest.
Brannan told police he and Capriati broke up in 2012 and that she harassed and stalked him since then.
