Britney Spears will be forced to pay a minimum of $136 in towing fees if she wants to get her car back, after police impounded the vehicle following her breakdown on Monday night.

The troubled star brought Los Angeles traffic to a standstill on Monday after one of the tires on her Mercedes burst while driving along a busy road in Brentwood.

Cops insisted Spears abandon her white Mercedes on the hard shoulder in a bid to get traffic moving again following the incident--but it has now ended up at the Quicksilver Towing car impound, according to People.com.

Lt. David Grimes of the Los Angeles Police Department, West L.A. station, confirms, "Ms. Spears' car was impounded.

"Officers on the scene told me it was blocking the roadway, and that it was unsafe enough to leave at the location.

"(The car) was towed by a private company that's contracted with the city. Her car is being held at the official police-garage tow yard."

But Grimes claims Spears will not be hit with any more legal woes relating to the incident, adding, "She won't get any citations or fines."

The singer, 26, was given a lift home by a member of the paparazzi after the breakdown, but she will have to fork out $104 to pay for the towing of the car, plus a further $32 for each day the Mercedes stays in the yard, if she wants it released.
