Britney fingerprinted by police

BRITNEY Spears has visited a Los Angeles police station to be photographed and fingerprinted ahead of her hit-and-run court case.


The 25-year-old singer spent about 30 minutes at the station on Monday evening, af

ter a judge ordered her to submit to the procedures.


Spears was charged last month for allegedly crashing into a parked car while driving without a valid licence.


She could face up to six months in jail for the 6 August incident.


A conviction will also carry a fine of US$1 000.


Spears’ first court appearance is scheduled for 25 October.


Officer Mike Lopez said Spears, who applied for a California licence earlier this month, was fingerprinted and photographed before leaving, about 45 minutes after having turned herself in.


“She was fine, cooperative, Lopez said. “She did her business and came out.”


Spears’ career and personal life has recently been beset by a series of incidents.


Last week, a judge granted her permission to spend one night a week with her two young after the singer lost full-time custody to former husband Kevin Federline.


Spears and Federline must appear at a further hearing on October 26.


Last month, a judge said Spears showed “a habitual, frequent and continuous use of controlled substances and alcohol”.


She was then ordered to complete random drug and alcohol tests twice a week, as well as meeting weekly with a “parenting coach”, according to court documents.


But she later lost custody after failing to produce her driving licence and missing a test for drugs and alcohol. — BBC News.
