(Newser) – Britney Spears walked into an LA cop shop last night, got photographed and fingerprinted, and left, the AP reports. "She was fine, cooperative. She did her business and came out," said an officer. Britney will face hit and run charges in court on October 25; an August video shows her slamming into a parked car, assessing damage to her own vehicle and walking away.

Britney's last court visit worked in her favor: she appealed an order to give up her sons to ex-hubby Kevin Federline last week, and won one overnight visit per week. A court commissioner had made the original ruling due to Spear's' alcohol and drug use. Today, she wore big black sunglasses, telling officers that she had pinkeye.
