Pop sensation Britney Spears found herself in a recent encounter with California Highway Patrol officers when she was reportedly stopped due to a traffic violation.

Spears, 41, was captured on newly obtained police bodycam footage as she was pulled over in Thousand Oaks, California, on Oct. 6 for passing on double yellow lines. The incident took place only weeks after a previous encounter for an alleged speeding violation, according to TMZ.

Spears can be seen telling the officer that she was in desperate need of using a restroom, explaining, “I’m so sorry, I have to use the bathroom … it’s about to come out right now. Sorry, my house is right there.”


In a separate incident on Sept. 10, she was pulled over for allegedly driving 61 mph in a 40 mph zone. The officer then asked for her license and registration. However, Spears explained that her security team had her passport and license as she had recently returned from a trip. The California Highway Patrol officer clarified that he wasn’t intentionally targeting Spears but was focused on addressing speeding and violations related to double yellow lines.

The fine for the violation in October amounted to $327, while the penalties incurred in the incident from early September resulted in a considerably higher fine of $1,140, per TMZ.

Spears attracted more police attention in September when cops were dispatched to her home to perform a welfare check. The pop star sparked alarm after posting videos of herself dancing with knives, with fans worrying for her safety and the well-being of her dog.
