Paps Busted After Crazy Britney Chase

1/17/2008 10:03 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has learned that four paparazzi were arrested for reckless driving last night after chasing Britney Spears' car around Mission Hills, Calif. -- and four more were pulled over for driving crazazy-like.


Around 11:20 PM last night, according to law enforcement sources, police pulled over a total of eight vehicles driven by photogs, after they were observed driving evasively at a high rate of speed and making dangerous lane changes in and around Mission Hills. Four of the drivers were arrested.

We're also told that Britney herself told cops that one of the cars may have tried to "run her off the road," but she couldn't ID which car it was, so no action was taken. Also, we spotted her going to Kitson -- the clothing store -- at 1:30 in the morning. Yes, she made them open up the store.

TMZ has also learned that cops were pleasantly surprised when Britney forked over a valid California driver's license.

What a self-centered, shallow, horrible person she is. The employees of the store actually opened the store for her at 1:30AM?! What are they - stupid?? I wouldn't open any doors for any celebrity at 1:30 in the morning. She can shop like us "real" people. I have no idea who she thinks she is but, in my book, she's a total loser. All you K-Fed haters, he obviously is doing something right - clean drug screens, proper parenting skills, etc. Leave his ex alone in all this. If Shar is helping Kevin out, that shows just how compassionate she is. It's obvious the Twit is totally incapable of doing so. He also didn't "cause" her downfall. She did that on her own. It's unfortunate you Twit lovers fail to see that. She, and she alone, is responsible for her own actions. Go Kevin!!

How can she 'make' a store open in the middle of the night? How does she know who to call? Did you catch that, when she pulled up to the courthouse for that last hearing, everyone (paps, police, and whoever was in her car) were encouraging her to go inside ... except Adnan and he told her NOT to go to court. The nuttier he can 'help' her become, the better news and photos his employer can get. Sick.

She can't "make" Kitson open. If they chose to open for her, then who cares. And those paps should have been arrested long ago.

They should do more to prevent this kind of paparazzi crush on celebs in the future. I think people need to focus on the paparazzi problem. I think the articles where there is a respectful amount of distance are better than when you have a video of a scared crazy celebrity.

Maybe if Britney and Adnan didn't let them know when they were going out and where they were going, the paps wouldn't be chasing them like they do.

Hello? HOW COME the dumb Brit has NEVER been ticketed or arrested for HER driving antics. What a bunch of BS! I am sooooooo glad I do not live in LA and have to deal with the obvious bias of the police and sheriff's departments. They are a joke around the whole country. Don't they know that?

I'm so sure that she "made" them open the store. She'd be the one arrested if that was the case. You can't make someone open their store! They wanted to open their store. And ha-ha to the paps who got arrested!! I hope they start getting arrested for stalking too!!

42. To Elaine, if a person is being chased by a sworm of people whose only job is to get in the way ofcourse they are going to run!!! Duh!!! Don't you remember what happened to Princess Di. It was because of those leaches that she had to die. I am glad the cops finally did something about it.

No, I'm pretty sure that was because Princess Di's driver was thoroughly intoxicated.
