Britney Charged with Hit & Run

Britney Spears is in yet more legal trouble - the Los Angeles City Attorney has filed hit and run charges against her. The troubled pop superstar has ended a week in which her lawyer and manager both quit her employ as she fought her ex-husband for child custody with a new legal headache. It dates back to a parking lot incident on August 6, which was caught on camera by paparazzi photographers. Careless Spears accidentally collided with Kim Robard-Rifkin's vehicle as she tried to park her Mercedes Benz in Van Nuys, California. After inspecting the damage on her own car, Spears failed to contact Robard-Rifkin in accordance with California law.
