TMZ Photog to Brit -- Remove Tire from Foot

10/19/2007 10:15 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Britney Spears got intimate with a TMZ photog yesterday -- she ran over his foot!


It happened -- ironically -- as Spears was leaving a Bev Hills medical building.

With one hand attempting to cover her freshly acquired Jolie-esque lips, Spears attempted to exit the parking lot in her Pumpkinmobile while using her other hand to steer. As she tried to make a quick left, with paparazzi by her side, Spears' tire ran over our sandal-wearing photog's foot. Spears stopped the car, trapping our guy for what must have seemed like 4 hours. Ouch!

Spears looked shocked once she realized what she'd done ... but didn't get out of the car to see if he was okay. Our photog went to the emergency room and fortunately, nothing was broken. But, in tire terms, it has not been a very Goodyear for our guy. It's rough out there!

Tune in tonight to TMZ TV to see how it all went down -- and Britney's reaction!

I rarely come to Brit's defense, but I honestly think the Pap deserves this. They need to back off of all of the stars...if you don't give them attention, those that are acting out for it will grow up!

Good for her! Guess he shouldn't have been so close to have his foot under the car. Run them all over Brit!

When she hit that lady's car, she got out and looked at HER car and then walked away without leaving a note. Now she runs over a guy's foot. Obviously she didn't want to roll down her window or take her hand away from her freshly injected lips, but she could have had her assistant -of- the- week get out and see if one of her "friends" was OK. Just drove away. Doesn't learn. That being said, I wonder why several of them haven't been run over before, getting in her way while she tries to drive away from her photo op sites. They really are at fault if she hits them. Don't blame her for what happened, just being so casual about it. Would any of us have done the same, even if it was the guy's fault? Doubt it.

The were taken all because of phone reception. What is wrong with you people - why must you insist on degrading an individual whom is a responsible party.

HUH?! she didn't give her number, she gave a former assistant's number.

i don't know about the states... but in Canada:

it is against the law to provide false or misleading information to court ordered testing or reviews etc.

the two tests she supposedly took, which the judge still hasn't seen the paperwork for and only has the lawyers word on, were two tests where she choose the time and place and then was tested.

the purpose of random testing, is to not have her pick and choose when she will be tested, but to do it randomly so she cannot prepare before hand, gives a more honest reading on whether or not she is doing drugs or drinking.

by giving false, misleading, or just plain not her own freakin number.. makes it so she cannot be randomly tested, one of the COURT ORDERS.

as well as the fact she is constantly out and about instead of home making it harder for the random tests to be done, or not even answering her buzzer when she is home, yet another avoidance tactic.

the commisioner did not tell brit to give the testing agency her former assistant's number, but her OWN, he doesn't want to know if the assistant is doing drugs or drinking.. he wants to know whether or not brit is.

it's been weeks, she has only taken two tests according to her lawyer, both on brit's terms and not randomly. that is a failure to comply to the COURT ORDERS, the judge commisioner then has the right to revoke her visitations.

there's no raw deal, or pettiness about it. it is the LAW. if you do not comply to court orders, you are considered in defiance and can be punished accordingly.
