Hit-and-Run Charge Against Britney Spears Dismissed

A misdemeanor hit-and-run charge was dismissed against Britney Spears in a Van Nuys, Calif., court Thursday.

She also pleaded not guilty to another charge of driving without a valid California driver's license.

The singer, represented by her lawyer J. Michael Flanagan, did not personally attend the hearing.

Kim Robard-Rifkin, who owns the 1999 Mercedes-Benz station wagon that Spears hit on Aug. 6 in a San Fernando Valley parking lot, had been paid approximately $1,000 for damages, Flanagan previously told PEOPLE.

Robard-Rifkin "is very sympathetic toward Britney and hopes the best for her," said Flanagan, who delivered payment to the woman Tuesday.

Spears was ordered to appear in court on Nov. 26 regarding the license issue.

Despite the pop star obtaining a California license on Oct. 2, the L.A. City Attorneys are apparently seeking a probation term and fine for Spears, according to Flanagan.

Even though she has now obtained her license, "that doesn't account for when she drove without it," City Attorney spokesman Frank Mateljan previously said.
