Britney Spears foot-crushing case will not go to court

The pop star is off the hook

Britney Spears foot-crushing case will not go to court
Prosecutors have refused to pursue a case in which Britney Spears allegedly ran over the foot of a paparazzo while driving.

After reviewing a tape of the incident, a prosecuting attorney determined that the photographer must have placed his foot in the way of the pop star's vehicle.

In a report issued Friday (June 13), Los Angeles Deputy District Attorney stated that the "only way the victim's foot could have been where the video indicates it to be was by the victim placing it in that location."

The photographer, who was not identified in the report, filed a criminal complaint against Spears in May, reports the Associated Press.

The report also states that the scene surrounding Spears' car was chaotic, and that she was driving at a very slow speed in a straight line.
