Amanda Bynes Officially Charged With Two Counts of Hit-and-Run


Amanda Bynes


The former Nickelodeon star now faces charges for allegedly smashing two separate cars on two different occasions.

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.
