Britney Spears charged with hit-and-run, DWOL

Your daily dose of the end of a once-promising career.

Singer Britney Spears has been charged with hit-and-run and driving without a valid licence.

She is accused of hitting a parked car and driving away from a Los Angeles car park on 6 August, a spokesman for the city’s attorney’s office said.

The 25-year-old could face six months in jail and a $1,000 (£495) fine if convicted of the misdemeanour charges.

Ms Spears’ representatives were not immediately available for comment, the Associated Press news agency said.

The train just keeps on wrecking.
