Spears was driving her 2008 Mercedes on the eastbound Ventura Freeway just east of the 405 freeway about 8:20 p.m. when the mishap occurred, said California Highway Patrol Officer Patrick Kimball.

Spears was in stop-and-go traffic when her car struck a 2006 Nissan in front of her that had stopped. The Nissan then pushed forward into another vehicle. No damage was noted to any of the vehicles.

The CHP took a report and no one was cited.


Foxy Brown to be releaed next week

FoxyBrown-01-big.jpgRapper Foxy Brown will be released from jail April 18, after serving eight months at New York's Rikers Island, this according to her manager.

They had her on continuous lock down just because she is a celebrity. They were trying to break her spirit," Chaz Williams said.

According to Reuters News, Williams revealed that Brown, born Inga Marchand, is in talks with a couple of television networks for a potential documentary and reality show on her life. Upon her release, Brown will also prepare for the release of her oft-delayed album, "Brooklyn's Don Diva," now due May 13. "She's going to get on top of her career again. She's ready to hit the ground running and do anything she needs to do to get her career back on point," Williams said.

Brown was sentenced on September 8 to a year in jail for violating her probation after several arrests, including an altercation with two nail salon employees in August 2004 and assaulting a neighbor with a BlackBerry.
