    New York (ANI): Britney Spears has rejected a 3,000-dollar fine deal offered by the Los Angeles' City Attorney in relation to hit-and-run charges incurred in August last year. The troubled singer hit a parked car in a private parking lot in the San Fernando Valley on 6 August 2007, in California while driving without a valid licence.

    The hit-and-run charge, which was caught on camera, was dismissed in court in October, after Spears offered a personal apology and 1,000 dollars in compensation to the vehicle's owner, Kim Robard-Rifkin, reports the New York Post. However, the 'Toxic' singer is still facing a charge of driving without a valid Californian driving licence, because she was only in possession of a permit from her native Louisiana at the time of the incident.

    Spears' attorney Michael Flanagan said that the City Attorney offered her a plea deal of pleading guilty to a misdemeanor of "driving without a California driver's license: no probation, contingent on her paying the maximum fine of $3000." But the pop star has instructed Flanagan to reject the deal as "they (the authorities) are attempting to treat her differently than they would any other person who did not have a valid licence at the time." Spears has since obtained her Californian driving licence.
