Britney Spears has been granted a restraining order against her ex-husband Jason Alexander days after he broke into her home just before her wedding ceremony.

On Thursday, Alexander, 40, was arrested by the Ventura Sheriff's Department prior to the Grammy Award winner's planned nuptials to Sam Asghari.

Spears' lawyer Mathew Rosengart now tells PEOPLE her restraining order against Alexander "was granted." Rosengart adds that "he was charged with felony stalking and is incarcerated."

"I extend my thanks to the Ventura County Sheriff's Office and District Attorney's Office for their good work and professionalism, and for the seriousness with which they are taking the matter," Rosengart says.

TMZ was first to report the news.

Spears' restraining order, which says Alexander can't go within 100 yards of Spears, will last for three years, Fox News reports.

Alexander made a virtual appearance at his court hearing Monday and entered a not-guilty plea, the outlet added.

Along with the stalking felony, Alexander has been charged with misdemeanor counts of trespassing and refusing to leave private property, vandalism, and battery, per his booking form with the Ventura County Sheriff's Office. His bail is set at $100,000.

He was also arrested on an out-of-county warrant for two felonies: grand theft embezzlement and receiving stolen property. The bail for those charges is $20,000.

During Thursday's incident, Alexander went live on Instagram as he roamed around the property, revealing their wedding decorations, which were still being arranged by party planners. He could be heard yelling her name and claiming to security that he was invited to the wedding.

"So, here's the inside scoop, guys, of the bulls— wedding. Jason Alexander, what's up," he said, greeting the workers and even shaking one's hand.

"My name's Jason Alexander. Britney invited me here," Alexander claimed. "Britney Spears invited me here. She's my first wife, my only wife. I'm her first husband."
