Amanda Bynes is once again caught in legal issues. The blond beauty might face, at most, a year in jail once the court proves that she has committed two counts of hit-and-run misdemeanor in two separate occasions which happened April 10 and August 4 of this year.

TMZ broke the news that the state prosecutors have decided to re-open Bynes' hit-and-run case because they were able to successfully link the first incident to a Los Angeles-based woman's filed report regarding the actress rear-ending her last August 4, and then just driving off after a short talk without even providing her insurance information. The said case was originally rejected a couple of weeks ago due to the fact that there's not enough witness back then.

Bynes first said that the she and the woman she rear-ended agreed that there was no significant damage on both cars because it was only a low-speed collision. However, the woman who accused her denied that there was an agreement. It must also be noted that these two hit-and-run charges were different from the incidents that took place on May 5 and 27 of this year.

Apart from her hit-and-run cases, Bynes was also charged with a case of DUI, which she pled not guilty, to which her lawyer expressed in court on her behalf. It was further stated that the DA was trying to seek a sentencing enhancement because the "She's the Man" actress refused to take a blood test and a breathalyzer.

The issue became even more controversial because after she was charged with DUI, she tagged the president of the United States in one of her tweets. She wrote, "Hey @BarackObama... I don't drink. Please fire the cop who arrested me."

Bynes is set to appear in court for arraignment on September 27.
