Britney's hit-and-run
charges dropped


Maybe things are turning around for Britney Spears. The singer got some good news when her misdemeanor hit-and-run charge was dismissed in a Van Nuys court yesterday. She also pleaded not guilty to another charge of driving without a valid California driver's license. Britney had already paid about $1,000 for damages to Kim Robard-Rifkin, the owner of the Mercedes-Benz station wagon that Britney hit on August 6. Kim is "very sympathetic toward Britney and hopes the best for her," said Brit's lawyer J. Michael Flanagan. Let's hope the good news keeps coming for the pop star, who heads into court today for her ongoing custody battle with Kevin Federline.
