Pop star Britney Spears is breathing easy after a criminal case against her for driving without a license was dismissed. A mistrial was declared in a Los Angeles court when jurors said they couldn’t come up with a unanimous decision following two full days of deliberations. Jurors were deadlocked 10-2 in favor of acquitting the Spears of any wrongdoing. There most likely will not be a second trial because prosecutors said they would not pursue the criminal case further. Spears hit a parked car last year while driving in California on her Louisiana license. Her attorney said she didn’t meet the state’s residency requirements and was within the law. But prosecutors said the 26-year-old needed a license because she was married, had two children and filed for divorce in Los Angeles, which dawned her a California resident. In other news, Spears will finally break her silence about her past few tumultuous years on November 30, when she stars in a 90-minute MTV documentary, tentatively titled “For the Record,” in which the singer promises to “set the record straight.”
