LOS ANGELES, Sep 22 (Reuters) Pop star Britney Spears was charged with hit and run and driving without a valid license, a spokesman with the Los Angeles City Attorney's Office said.

The 25-year-old singer was charged with one count of hit and run causing property damage and one count of driving without a valid California driver's license, both misdemeanors.

The charges, which each carry a maximum penalty of six months in jail and a 1,000 dollars fine, stem from an incident in a private parking lot in the San Fernando Valley on Augurt. 6.

Spears was sent a letter yesterday, notifying her of the charges and a hearing in the matter on October. 10, a spokesman for the city attorney's office said.

She is not required to attend the hearing because the charges are misdemeanors, the spokesman said.
