UPDATE: Britney Spears won’t be arrested, not on drugs, police say
After the smoke has cleared, Officer Ana Aguirre provided details of the incident at Britney Spears’ home. Most notably police believe the children were not in danger. The Associated Press reports:
“There was a time where she was within the residence and wasn’t available to be speaking to the officers, apparently,” she said. “There was no threat to the children.”
“Police resolved the conflict,” Aguirre said. “Both children were turned over to her ex-husband Kevin Federline for custody, and she was in fact taken to a local hospital for medical treatment.”
The police are also confirming that Britney Spears was not on drugs and will not face charges:
Early police reports said officers thought Spears might have been under the influence of some substance but Aguirre said there was no evidence of that.
“Our understanding is that was not the case,” she said.
Officers at the scene determined that paramedics “needed to be called” but it was unclear why, she said.
“We’re not aware of any type of injuries that she sustained” and she was not combative with authorities, Aguirre said.
Spears wasn’t arrested in connection with the custody dispute, Aguirre said.
“There was no actual crime that was involved,” the police spokeswoman said.
So was this whole event blown out of proportion? Clearly. Has Britney’s chances at seeing her kids again increased? Unfortunately. Will the SWAT team be called in next time? God, I hope so. I want Britney to get hit with one of those beanbag guns. Mostly to see if she thinks it’s a burrito and tries to eat it.
UPDATE: The AP reports that Commissioner Scott Gordon granted Kevin Federline sole legal and physical custody of the children and Britney Spears visitation rights are suspended.
