A paparazzo who pressed charges against Britney Spears after her car ran over his foot was himself to blame for any injury, prosecutors in Los Angeles said in refusing to pursue the case.

After reviewing police records and a videotape of the incident last year, deputy district attorney Joseph D. Shidler wrote Friday 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."

The photographer, who was not identified in the report, filed a criminal complaint against Spears in early May, nearly six months after the alleged incident.
