Britney Spears' hands are clean as far as the paparazzi's feet are concerned.

The Los Angeles District Attorney has declined to file charges against the tarnished popster, stemming from a photographer's claim that she drove over his foot in November while attempting to steer through the usual shutterbug scrum outside the Four Seasons hotel, E! News confirms.

After reviewing footage of the crowd at the scene, shot by one of the paparazzi on hand, authorities concluded that the "only way the victim’s foot could have been where the video indicates it to be was by the victim placing it in that location," according to the district attorney's report. “There was a lot of noise and confusion as the photographers were jockeying for position.

Spears told police at the time she had no recollection of her car coming into contact with anyone as she motored away from the hotel. The district attorney agreed that there was no evidence to prove the "Gimme More" singer was aware she was voluntarily leaving the scene of an accident.

The accusatory photog filed a complaint in May—six months after the alleged incident—asking that Spears be charged with a felony for leaving the scene of an accident involving an injury.

But Spears ended up escaping the Great Rollover Epidemic of 2007 relatively unscathed. She was also never prosecuted for grazing a sheriff's deputy's foot, and a misdemeanor hit-and-run charge for leaving the scene after bumping into a parked car last year was dropped after she settled up with the owner of the other vehicle.
