Britney Spears Under Investigation for Allegedly Striking Employee During "Dispute" at Home | PEOPLE

Britney Spears is being investigated by the Ventura County Sheriff's Department for an alleged misdemeanor battery incident.

Capt. Eric Buschow confirms to PEOPLE that the singer is the suspect in a battery investigation after an employee reported that Spears, 39, "struck them during a dispute" inside her home. However, a source close to Spears tells PEOPLE that the report is a complete fabrication.

"Ultimately that investigation will be forwarded to the attorney's office for review. It's a minor misdemeanor battery [investigation]," Capt. Buschow tells PEOPLE, adding that there were no injuries reported.
