Federline attorney requests LAPD report
EmptyAn attorney for Kevin Federline wants the Police Department to release its investigative report on an incident at ex-wife Britney Spears' home a week ago that led to the pop star losing custody of her two sons.
According to a court order released by Los Angeles County Superior Court on Friday, there was a hearing Thursday in the couple's child custody dispute. Federline's attorney, Mark Vincent Kaplan, asked for the police report and also requested the names of the law enforcement officers who responded to the situation.
A hearing on the requests was set for Monday.
On Jan. 3, police intervened when Spears refused to return her the children to her ex-husband after a court-monitored visit.
After a standoff, Spears was taken to a hospital in an ambulance that was chased by a crowd of photographers.
The next day, Commissioner Scott Gordon awarded sole legal and physical custody of the boys, 1-year-old Jayden James and 2-year-old Sean Preston, to Federline and suspended Spears' visitation rights.
Spears left Cedars-Sinai Medical Center a day and half later.
According to the court order, Gordon denied a request from Spears' lawyers to close the case's next hearing to the media.
That means that, unlike most of the previous hearings, Monday's proceedings could be open to the public and the media.
