This is a "what-not-to-do" lesson for all aspiring bodyguards

Hollywood celebrities are really one of a kind and we probably should not even attempt to understand them. Those of us involved with Executive Protection and training E.P. agents really cringe when we read stories like this one about Brittany Spears’ new bodyguard, Ryan.

For those of you not involved in the profession, or looking to get involved and who may be reading this, the first sign that her bodyguard is not properly trained is the way he is walking with her. He should not have his arm around her. He looks like he is dating her, not protecting her.

Then we read that when he discovers her vehicle is getting a ticket, he abandons his Principal and runs out to talk the meter maid out of writing the ticket. Meanwhile the clever paparazzi seize the moment when Spears is not only underwearless, but bodyguardless to snap some shots.

If Ryan had even a half of a clue about what his responsibilities were, he would have parked the vehicle legally upon arrival or just allowed the $25 ticket to be written.

As far as ensuring that his Principal wore underwear, well we won’t ding him for that one. Ms. Spears is known for her propensity to “go commando”.
