CTV.ca: A woman arrested outside Britney Spears' home is a former "American Idol" hopeful who says she's making a paparazzi documentary.
Miranda Tozier-Robbins says she wanted to show the efforts paparazzi go through and she chose Spears because it "might as well be someone I'm interested in."
Deputies arrested the 26-year-old Thursday after security guards caught her peeking into windows at the singer's Calabasas home, wearing camouflage and carrying camera gear.
The Fitchburg, Mass., native responded electronically to a series of questions from The Associated Press on Friday, and confirmed her identity in a phone message.
She says she wasn't expecting Spears to be home, but would have tried to sell pictures of the singer if she got any.
TMZ.com: The woman arrested for ominous behavior on Britney Spears' property says for her, Britney was like an assignment you get in chemistry class.
Miranda Tozier-Robbins was arrested outside of Britney's home wearing camouflage and holding a camera ... but it turns out the whole thing was kind of a misunderstanding. In her mind at least.
The 26 year-old art student, who attends the Art Institute in L.A., claims she was just trying to show the lengths to which the paparazzi have to go get their pics. The footage was going to be used in a documentary film she's currently working on.
Apparently the excuse is working -- TMZ has learned that Tozier-Robbins won't face any punishment at her college as long as she keeps attending classes.
