Too bad his quickie wedding to Britney Spears didn't last as long as his current stint in the slammer.

Authorities in Los Angeles have locked up Jason Alexander—not the Seinfeld star but the childhood pal who spent all of two days married to Spears back in 2004—for a probation violation stemming from a 2006 DUI bust.

Per Los Angeles Sheriff's Department spokesman Steve Whitmore, the 27-year-old Alexander appeared in court today to explain why he skipped two previous appointments as part of a court-ordered alcohol-education program.

Apparently the judge wasn't swayed by Alexander's excuse, and the former Britney bridegroom was sent to lockup.

"Mr. Alexander will now serve 10 days in the L.A. County jail," Whitmore tells E! News.

In one of her bigger oops moments, Spears swapped vows with Alexander in Vegas Jan. 3, 2004, only to file for annulment 55 hours later on the grounds that she lacked the understanding to know what she was doing.
