Britney blames paparazzi for her speeding

Britney Spears was pulled over for speeding, and told police her reason was she was being chased by the paparazzi.

Wearing a blond wig and brown hat, Spears was pulled over in her white Mercedes convertible for speeding on Aug. 25, according to X-17 Online.

According to the story, Brit was headed east on Interstate 10 around 12:30 a.m. with two male dancers in the car when Highway Patrol attempted to pull the car over.

However, according to reports, despite the officer pulling up directly behind Spears with his lights on, she kept driving for nearly a mile before finally pulling off the highway and stopping at a gas station.

Once she pulled over, Spears was reportedly extremely cooperative with authorities and, after a brief conversation, she was let off with a warning.

According to X-17, Spears told the officers she was speeding because she was being chased by the paparazzi.

After the officers left, one of Spears’ passengers took the wheel and the car headed back towards Los Angeles, according to X-17.
