New Criminal Investigation in Britney Fight

8/28/2007 1:18 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has learned there's an official criminal investigation in the Britney Spears custody saga -- but it doesn't involve Britney or K-Fed.
Last night, at 6:09 PM, LAPD officers responded to a street in Venice, Calif. Aaron Cohen, a former counter-terror commando in the Israeli army -- attempted to serve a subpoena in the custody case. Cohen, who works for K-Fed's lawyer, Mark Vincent Kaplan, spotted Sam Osama Lufti, who may have some association with Spears, but we don't know exactly what.

TMZ has learned, according to the police report, Lufti recognized Cohen and then gunned his Silver Mercedes SL, smashing into Cohen's Buick. We're told Lufti then reportedly smashed into a Range Rover.

LAPD sources say they are investigating. We're told Lufti is the suspect, and the allegation on the table is assault with a deadly weapon with a vehicle.

I just saw on X17 an interview that this guy Sam did and he said that the cops were fully aware of what happened and that they were at the scence moments after the crashes took place.
Who knows what to believe with this whole mess.....everyone should just leave these people alone

Just another Spears loser on the run from having to tell the truth.

I'm starting to actually stick up for this girl - i think it's shady that he has his "people", or even himself, call child services to check up on something that was printed in a mag (dental, etc), but yet he refuses to talk to her for over 3 months now, even when it concerns the children - so who is dropping the ball in parenting - someone explain that to me if you can....

There are better ways to handle this situation. Endangering people -- especially innocent bystanders -- should never be part of serving a subpoena. Those being served should not create dangerous situations while trying to avoid service AND those serving should never create dangerous situations either.

He's just another Idiot    

Does money grubbing K-Fed have a father? a mother? sisters? brothers? Where are they? Is Britney supporting them, too, along with all his bastard childen? He is such a despicable louse. Where is he from? He looks and sounds like he just crawled out of the ocean. It's so disgusting what he and his lawyers will do to get her money. I hope all the lies they are collecting will be thrown out of court.

What is so awful that her "aquintances" are in hiding and/or running? If it's that bad then maybe she needs to hire a super good nanny and just make herself busy working for her money like the rest of america instead of sitting around shaving her head during a tortured fit of depression or going to trendy night clubs for all to see. Therapy would be a good start. Oh, don't forget some parenting classes! It doesn't hurt anybody to take them.

Kevin and Kaplan smell the money and will stop at nothing to get it.

But you have to stop and ask yourself. Are those kids better off with K-Fed or with this:

My vote is K-Fed

WOW... what does Lufti know that he would bring this upon himself? It must be BIG. I hope it is something she did to herself and not something horriable to those babies. Why do people run? Why is her x- manager in HIDEING? What is going to come out? It is like some kind of crazy movie. This is so sad. I thought the whole thing was kind of silly at first but now it just scares me. I dont think you can blame all of this on reporters and photographers or even her ex-husband.... that girl is hideing something.

Avoiding the subpoena demonstrates Sam's knowledge. He was actively avoiding this legality. He has things he is hiding. I have sympathy for Brit. Yet she and her entourage are not above the law and all things legal.

they are trying to gather as much evidence as possible, this way it collectively looks bad - if you have different people saying different things, it could be bad. it takes a special type of lawyer, not just person, to do family law, and he is way too good at it, so he will stop at nothing - just as long as he continues to get paid. you haven't heard from spears, evensomuch as to defend herself, and i think she is right in doing so, b/c i believe this will all wind up backfiring on him... it's just disgusting what they are doing to this girl...

Imagine being stalked constantly by the paps. Imagine an idiot x-husband and his lawyers after all your money by telling lies. I imagine all of us would be stressed and depressed. We don't know what Britney is doing and feeling. We just know what the mean and nasty paps are showing us and the dumb celebrity shows on TV shows us. TMZ, you should be ashamed for bringing down Britney. I hope she sues all of you for harrassment.
