Britney Spears wasn’t present at today’s arraignment when Los Angeles Superior Court Commissioner Rebecca Omens ordered her to be fingerprinted and photographed at a police station before appearing in court at the end of the month. The singer was charged with a hit and run after allegedly hitting a parked car and driving without a valid license.
The 25-year-old songstress was formally accused after the owner of the other car, Kim Robard-Rifkin, filed a police report that explained the Aug. 6 incident. X17 agency caught the pop star on video, supposedly checking the damage on her own car before leaving the scene of the accident.
At the beginning of the month, the singer finally got her California driver’s license after Los Angeles Superior Court Commissioner Scott Gordon, the judge in charge of Spears’ custody case, ordered her to give proof of the document.
Spears will have to appear in court on Oct. 25. If found guilty, she could face up to year in jail.
