Britney Spears jury is full of swing voters



Jurors in Britney Spears' trial for driving without a valid license are treating it like a Perry mason murder case, initially coming back from deliberations deadlocked before being instructed to go back and think about it some more.

The L.A. Times says Judge James Steele told jurors that coming to no conclusion wasn't an acceptable outcome: "I'm going to ask you to make another attempt to resolve whatever differences you have," he said.

He read them additional legal instructions Monday and told them to get back to them when they weren't being so obtuse. Well, that's not true, but it's not like they're solving the Son of Sam case here: Brit was in a fender bender last year and didn't have California license (although she did have a Louisiana license). This should've been decided on Friday, when they started deliberating -- didn't they know the ALCS was on this weekend?
