Spears arrives at custody hearing, but doesn't go inside

LOS ANGELES (AP) - She apparently got as far as the courthouse garage.

An SUV carrying Britney Spears arrived Monday afternoon in a Los Angeles civic center garage, near the courtroom where a commissioner was holding a hearing on her custody battle with ex-husband Kevin Federline.

But after two of her attorneys got out, the vehicle left again. It then appeared to circle the block as paparazzi ran in a frenzy to keep up with it.

A court spokesman said Spears appeared to have left without ever going up to the courtroom.

A commissioner ordered the hearing after suspending Spears' visitation rights with her children.

It followed an incident in which police had paramedics take her to a hospital earlier this month.
