A Los Angeles County judge has ordered Britney Spears to be booked for suspicion of hit-and-run before a scheduled Oct. 25 court appearance, according to TMZ.com.
According to NBC News, Spears' attorney will have to show proof of the booking at the Oct. 25 hearing. Spears does not need to be present for this arraignment.
Spears was charged with one count of hit-and-run and one count of driving with a suspended license on Sept. 21. Both are misdemeanor charges, each of which carries a maximum six-month jail sentence.
The charges stem from an August incident in which Spears hit a parked car. Cameramen from several celebrity Web sites shot video of Spears hitting the car and then leaving the scene without leaving a note or making an attempt to contact the driver. Spears’ lawyer, Michael Flanagan, confirmed to Access Hollywood they are trying to “work out something” with Kim Rifkin, the owner of the other vehicle.
Meanwhile, the custody hearing for Spears and ex-husband Kevin Federline is still set for Oct. 26. She has been ordered to be present for this court date.
