Spears Hits Yet Another Car

Britney Spears has to be the world's worst driver. Over the weekend she backed into yet ANOTHER car, this time actually bothering to confront the owner, who happened to be one of the bazillion paps following her around.

The clumsy singer, who still faces a hit-and-run charge for leaving the scene of a parking lot incident in August without addressing the owner of a vehicle she hit, reversed into a paparazzi's car while trying to park on Saturday night.

Learning from her last accident, red-faced Spears tracked down the owner of the car she bumped, stating, "I'm stupid, I'm sorry... I'm a horrible driver."

She then joked, "Are you going to sue me or something?" but the forgiving snapper just shrugged off the incident and told Spears, who was wearing sunglasses on a dreary Los Angeles night, "not to worry."

Brit actually did turn herself in to the cops yesterday for the hit and run that happened in August. She was booked, fingerprinted and then released.

"At around 9:25 this evening, Ms. Spears turned herself in to the Van Nuys Jail for booking," said LAPD officer Mike Lopez. "This was by court order, which is common for a misdemeanor charge."

A smiling Spears, wearing a short black dress, a black jacket and carrying a white purse, was accompanied by pal Sam Lufti and her lawyer, J. Michael Flanagan, when she surrendered at the jail.

She will be arraigned for two charges – hit-and-run causing property damage and driving without a valid California driver's license – on Oct. 25.

Spears faces up to a year in jail if convicted, but Flanagan previously told PEOPLE, "We're working toward a resolution of the case, but we don't have a firm deal yet."

In other words, the lady who's car she hit is still trying to figure out a nice round dollar figure to make her feel better.
