It's Britney ... Booked!

10/16/2007 8:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has confirmed Britney Spears booked herself with the LAPD Monday night on misdemeanor charges of hit and run.


Wearing a black mini dress, black leather jacket and sporting silver chains around her neck, she walked into the Van Nuys jail last night and did the deed.



LAPD told us "at approximately 9:25 PM Miss Britney Spears checked into the Van Nuys County Jail for a court ordered booking. She was put through standard booking procedures which included booking photographs, fingerprinting and collection of information. Britney was at all time cooperative in the process. She was there approximately 45 minutes." We're also told she was never put in a holding cell, and she was polite and courteous to the officers. We're also told cops offered her the back entrance -- but she declined, opting to go in the front door. FOX 11 Los Angeles caught Brit on her way in and out of the jail.

The L.A.City Attorney charged Spears in September with one count of hit and run causing property damage and one count of driving without a valid California license. Both charges are misdemeanors, each carrying a maximum of 6 months in jail. The charges stem from an August 6 incident in L.A. where Spears was in a private parking lot in the San Fernando Valley and rammed into a parked car.

It would be NICE if Britney spent time in jail but as we all know that shall be cut in half just like Paris had done with her jail sentence. So sick of these disgusting creatures in Hollywood....Britney, Paris, Lindsey, Nicole. They are classless low lifes who think they are hot crap. They are not. They are simply spoiled little rich girls who are worthless human beings. All they know how to do is get drunk, stoned, screw, and have babies! DISGUSTING. They have nothing on the old movie stars who had class and acted like woman should. Wish these losers would all just go away already as I think we all have had enough, seen enough, and could care less. But if they all went away then TMZ would have nothing to comment on anymore! TMZ YOU ALL SUCK. If this is what you call news..you need to find another job!

I feel sorry for her. If you watch the video she says "What do I do?" to the Paps and NO ONE suggests finding the owner of the car. She wasn't being criminal, she just had no idea what to do. Trying to think straight with 30 cameras in your face isn't easy. The Paps should share in the blame for this one.

After reading the article and looking at the video, I don't feel sorry for Brit
They police offered her the back door to leave, and she WANTED to take the front door through the papparazzi
So she subscribes to any press is good press - media ho

The way she is smiling and her demeanor speaks volumes--'she thinks this is a joke'. Seems like the celebrities are the only ones there in LA (Van Nuys and Lynwood etc.) who do not get put in a holding cell before or after they are booked. She needs to apologize to the lady whose car she rammed into and then split. The lady tried to reach Britney and her entourage for days before she came in to the police station and reported it--there was never any response from the Britney Camp. All this could have been avoided--guess the fact that she wanted to exit the front instead of the back suggests she likes the publicity from this too. Sick and narcissistic behavior again and again.

hitting another vehicle and causing damage.. then leaving the scene is a hit and run. sure most of the time it's not enforced.. but also most of the time it's not caught on fewking video!

replacing the fender of that woman's car will cost her not pennies.. not even a few hundred.. more like several thousands.

as for blaming the paps.. um HELLO!? she calls them, tells them where she will be, or calls and finds out where they will be.. so she can get her fewkin pics taken.

I have never heard of anyone being booked for hitting someones car in a parking lot, can't the 2 parties just work things out between their insurance companies ?

having never been arrested or in jail, i am wondering about the balance of crime and punishment here, as in this traffic incident took place in august and now in october she's just now being booked? did the warren commission look into this or are there really that many celebrity traffic punks clogging up our court system? and she hung around for 46 minutes, didn't stay in a holding cell, and then left, to...go home? i just want to get this straight so i can sell my kids out to hollywood and get us on that gravy train with a lifetime pass for their self-centered juvenile billshut.

she never even looked at the car she hit, not even a glance. note that she even dinged their car door too.
