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.

I'm very proud of Britney. She is REALLY getting it together! She has tested negative for 2 drug tests. She has also reconciled with her mother. And she got her driver's license registered with the State of California. Britney also went to court (when she didn't have to appear) to get overnight visitation with her kids, once a week. Finally, she knew that she had to go to the police station to get booked (for not leaving insurance info. on the car she hit in the parking lot) and now she has done that! This is progress folks. Her single is #3 on Billboard's Hot 100. Everything is looking up for her!

I think Britney takes steroids. I mean, she might take other things too but I'm thinking steroids are in the mix. Her legs are just too muscular for her not having been on tour for so long. And it's pretty obvious she hasn't been exercising. 'Roids will make you nuts too.

Daddy wants some of the pie too.    

"Did I hurt MY car?" Didn't even bother to look at the other person's car she hit. I hope it belonged to a Britney lover. What a self-absorbed scank!

Some weight is good. Angelina Jolie is nothing but a bag of bones with lips. But keep in mind that Britney is basically a performer. A glorified dancer. Dancers can't have much body fat at all; it slows them down & it's too hard on their joints. Film stars can get away with more. Britney will be too slow to do much on stage unless she drops a few pounds. That's just the nature of the beast. You're a guy, right? You know I'm gonna accuse you of looking at the sisters! lol

No way does she weigh 125 lbs. My girlfriend is the same height and weighs 125 and her waist is as big around as Britneys upper leg. At least 150.

She also wasn't wearing a seat belt which, at least where I live, is a law every time you get into a car. So to review. She didn't have a CA licence. She was not wearing a required seat belt. She hit another car, got out, checked her own car, never so much as looked at the other one, and left - all on film.

And the sad thing is, she will no doubt get off on these charges. Until she gets tough love (like Lindsay Lohan, but I'm not holding my breath that her sobriety will last), Britney will continue to believe the world revolves around her. She isn't special and she shouldn't be treated special at the police station. She can waltz in at 9:45 p.m. all dressed up for a mugshot. Yeah that would happen here in NY. We'd be in a holding cell faster than we could say Ding Dang, ya'll.
