Britney Spears Hit-and-Run Charges Dismissed

Britney Spears has escaped a misdemeanor hit-and-run charge, after it was dismissed in a California court.

The star allegedly smashed into a parked car in a private parking lot in the San Fernando Valley on Aug. 6 in Los Angeles while driving without a valid license.

Earlier this month, Spears impressed the vehicle’s owner Kim Robard-Rifkin by offering a personal apology and $1,000 in compensation–which caused the charges to be dismissed in a Van Nuys court.

Spears‘ lawyer, J. Michael Flanagan, says Robard-Rifkin “is very sympathetic toward Britney and hopes the best for her.”

But it’s not the end of legal troubles for the troubled star–Spears has been ordered to appear in court on Nov. 26 over the charges of driving without a valid California driver’s license.

According to Flanagan, L.A. City Attorneys plan to seek a probation term and fine against the singer.
