Jennifer Capriati investigated in stalking

NORTH PALM BEACH, Fla., March 10 (UPI) -- Former tennis star Jennifer Capriati was investigated for stalking after she allegedly punched her ex-boyfriend at a Florida health club, police said.

Investigators in the small town of North Palm Beach said they appeared to have probable cause to arrest Capriati on battery and stalking charges in the incident; however the Palm Beach (Fla.) Post said Sunday it was not clear if charges would be filed.

Capriati, 36, and Ivan Brannan have had a series of run-ins since they stopped dating about a year ago. Capriati allegedly has peppered Brannan with phone calls and text messages, and has shown up uninvited at his job and the gym.

Their latest confrontation led to Capriati allegedly socking Brannan in the chest repeatedly until a yoga instructed stepped in to break it up.

A representative for Capriati, who was ranked No. 1 in the world during her playing days, denied the allegations and called them a "over-exaggeration," the Post said.
