Britney Spears's ex-boyfriend Adnan Ghalib allegedly tried to run over a man on Monday who was trying to serve Ghalib with court papers in Los Angeles, police say.

The process server "ended up on the hood of the car, then fell off when [Ghalib] drove away, and ended up with scratches and bruises," Lt. Brian Whitten tells PEOPLE.

A report was taken for assault with a deadly weapon, but Ghalib, 36, is not a wanted man.

"He's not liable for arrest," Whitten said. "We first need to get his side of the story."

Ghalib and the singer's former manager, Sam Lutfi, were issued restraining orders on Jan. 30, after Spears's father accused them of harassing his daughter.

Days later, Lutfi filed a lawsuit against the Spears family for defamation and battery.

Efforts to reach Ghalib were not immediately successful.
