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.

I'm not a fan of celebrities or the Paparazzi, but one of these days somebody (whether it is a celebrity or not) is going to go nuts and pull a gun and shoot the hell out of these losers that continually stalk the celebrities. Only then will the government finally do something to stop the rdiiculous behaviour of these morons.

And there yah go TMZ - Don't you also send Pap's out to chase after Brit, and many other Star's? Sure you do! I don't like Rosie either, but I do agree with what she said - "The Pap's will be responsible for Britney's death some day soon. Yes she chose to have a singing and acting career, but does that mean they are not to have a personal life. For God Sake, she can't even go into a Pharmacy without you Fool's being there to take her picture! I've read comments where people have made fun of the idea that she might be killed at the hands of the Pap's..........what the heck is so funny about that? She may not have the best parents in the world, and she may not be the best Mommy, BUT the fact remains, she is someone's daughter, and she is the Mommy of these two little boys. The ignorance of some people really amazes me!

49. No one can chase you if you're not running. If the paps were chasing her at a high rate of speed Sh*tney must have also been driving at a high rate of speed. If anyone can be considered "impaired" it is she, and she shouldn't even be driving. Why doesn't she hire a driver and bodyguard? If she didn't want all the attention she'd move from the area, quit acting like a lunatic and get some serious mental help. She's a real menace to society!

I highly doubt she was driving. If she drives and does ANYTHING to endanger herself or others, the parents may be able to get a judge to get her psychologically evaluated.

Clearly anyone can see she has some serious mental health issues and I believe it is unethical for these photographers to hound her like this. This is only aggravating her current condition. I am amazed that Levin allows this from his staff. If its not his staff, then dont post or pay for footage. She needs help, of course she won't get it so those around her should not do anything that might cause a serious breakdown. I enjoy celebrity gossip but this hounding of her is unethical at this point due to her mental state.

STOP SAYING THAT BRITNEY NEEDS HELP OR SOMEONE INTERVENE, YOU TARDS WILL BELIEVE ANYTHING THE MEDIA FEEDS YOU.
BRITNEY IS SMART, BUATIFUL, SEXY AND CAN AFFORD TOS HOP, YOU CANNOT. THEREFORE YOU ARE THE ONES THAT NEED HELP PAYING YOUR MORTGATE OR YOUR CC BILLS.
BRITNEY IS DOING FINE, ITS KFED THE MOHAWK DORK THATS GIVING HER PROBLEMS AND UNFORTUANTLY HER KIDS WILLSUFFER BECAUSE KFED IS TRYING TO STEAL ALL OF BRITS MONEY.
DONT MESS WITH BRITNEY AND HER $250K MERCEDES BENZ, BRITNEY SHOULD GET OIL SLICK AND SMOKE SCRREEN INSTALLED IN HER CAR HAHAAHAA

Let's get one thing straight you little pea-brained piece of s--t. I, for one, can afford to shop. I don't need to do it at 1:30 in the morning and force hard-working people out of bed to open the store for me because my ego requires it. The only person that is a problem for S--tney, is S--tney. Unfortunately, all you ass-kissers with and IQ of retard cannot see it. You are a 100% certifiable idiot.
