Officers are investigating how a sheriff’s deputy was injured as Britney Spears was leaving a downtown courthouse last week, the Los Angeles Police Department confirmed Friday.

“We are aware that Britney Spears was leaving the courthouse,” said Officer Jason Lee, a police spokesman. “We are also aware that a deputy was injured, but we’re unable to confirm the details on the deputy’s injury because the investigation is in its initial stage.”

The celebrity Web site TMZ.com reported authorities are investigating whether Spears ran over the deputy’s foot with her car as she was leaving an Oct. 26 hearing on her efforts to obtain joint custody of her two children with ex-husband Kevin Federline.

Officer Ana Aguirre would only say that a deputy suffered “minor to moderate” injuries in an accident involving a vehicle.

“It’s unknown if (Spears) was the driver,” Aguirre said.
