Amanda Bynes Could Go to Jail for Hit-and-Run Accidents
The actress was charged Wednesday for two hit-and-run car crashes.
Amanda Bynes faces up to a year in jail for two hit-and-run car accidents, the Los Angeles Times reports.
The 26-year-old actress was charged Wednesday for her involvement in road-related incidents on April 10 and Aug. 4, a city attorney's spokesperson told the paper.
Bynes will be arraigned in court later this month.
Weeks ago, in August, she allegedly rear-ended a driver on Ventura Boulevard, inflicting $800 worth of damage; according to what the driver told police, Bynes saw no problem with the car and drove away without exchanging insurance information or allowing for a police call to assess the situation. Bynes argued that the two both agreed there was minimal damage.
Earlier this year, Bynes was charged with drunk driving following her April run-in with the law in which she was accused of sideswiping a police car while attempting to make a right hand turn. (She later pleaded not guilty, and solicited President Obama on Twitter to pardon her.)
Bynes' driving woes do not stop there. Over the course of this year, she's been spotted backing over a curb while texting, holding up traffic while attempting a three-pointed U-turn and sideswiping another vehicle.
Bynes rose to fame on the Nickelodeon shows All That and The Amanda Show. She went on to star in multiple teen-friendly films, including Hairspray and She’s the Man.
