Spears sued for running over photog's foot

A former TMZ photographer is suing Britney Spears over an incident in which his foot was run over. Ricardo Mendoza filed a civil lawsuit in Los Angeles on Friday against the singer. The lawsuit claims that Spears negligently operated her car and committed assault and battery when she ran over his foot in Beverly Hills in October 2007.

Several media outlets picked up footage of the incident, including celebrity gossip site TMZ, where Mendoza worked at the time.

TMZ, which first reported the lawsuit, auctioned off his tire-stained sock and donated the proceeds to charity.

The incident happened during a turbulent period for Spears, who hours earlier had lost custody of her two sons. She has since regained visitation rights.
