Jennifer Capriati: Criminal charges dropped against former tennis star

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. - Former tennis star Jennifer Capriati is no longer facing battery and stalking charges stemming from an alleged altercation with her ex-boyfriend on Valentine's Day 2013.

The Palm Beach County State Attorney's Office confirms that it agreed to drop the charges against Capriati if she completed 30 hours of community service and complete four hours of anger management classes.

According to the state attorney's office, Capriati performed the court-ordered volunteer work at the Florida Hospital Pepin Institute in Tampa.

Last year, 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.
