Britney Charged In Hit And Run

Britney Spears is headed for the courtroom and not to claim custody of her kids. Britney has a hearing set for October 10 over a recent fender-bender in a San Fernando, California, parking lot. Brit was officially charged Friday afternoon by the Los Angeles city attorney with two misdemeanor counts, one count of hit-and-run resulting in damaged property and the second for driving without a valid California license. The charges stem from the incident on August 6 when she slammed into a parked car and drove off without leaving details.

Britney could soon be following in the footsteps of fellow party pals Paris Hilton and Nicole Richie with a stint in jail, as both charges carry a maximum of six months behind bars and a $1,000 fine. The victim of the “Toxic” traffic accident, Kim Rifkin, filed a police report with the LAPD North Hollywood Division three days after the debacle, and the letter of court notification was sent to Britney Friday afternoon. Rifkin raged publicly about the pop princess, telling Celeb TV at the time that “she doesn’t give a damn about anyone but herself”.

After she left her lawyer's office, Britney was spotted making her way to Bel Air and into a home believed to be owned by a nurse, sparking speculation that this could be for her very first court-ordered drug test. The dancing diva appeared down and entered looking particularly "stunned". "It was like Brit couldn’t believe it was all actually happening," an eyewitness said. "She looked like a little girl – disoriented and scared."
