Amanda Bynes Charged With Driving on Suspended License

Legal woes continue for the actress, who hit a sheriff's patrol car in West Hollywood back in April while allegedly driving under the influence.

Actress Amanda Bynes—who pleaded not guilty to a misdemeanor DUI charge after driving into a Weho patrol car in April—was charged Friday with two misdemeanor counts of operating a vehicle on a suspended drivers license.

The charges filed by the Burbank City Attorney's Office stem from a traffic stop Sunday near the main entrance to Bob Hope Airport, in which her vehicle was impounded. She is scheduled to be arraigned Oct. 16 in Burbank Superior Court, according to Senior Assistant City Attorney Denny Wei of the Burbank City Attorney's Office.

Bynes' driving privileges were suspended as a result of a DUI charge and two hit-and-run counts. She is set to be arraigned next Thursday on the two misdemeanor hit-and-run charges, which involve separate crashes in April and August, and is awaiting a pretrial hearing Oct. 29 on the misdemeanor DUI case stemming from her April 6 arrest in West Hollywood when her black BMW hit a sheriff's patrol car at the intersection of Robertson and Santa Monica boulevards. 

The 26-year-old actress is best known for her roles on Nickelodeon's All That and The Amanda Show, and films such as Hairspray, What a Girl Wants and She's the Man.

The social sites/press certainly love to tear down these celebrities, don't they? Lindsay Lohan and Paris Hilton both got into trouble this week and their mistakes were splashed on every website and newspaper in the world. And now this poor girl, who I never really even heard of until she got into trouble in April, is their new target. Someone needs to get her out of town and off the radar because every misstep she makes will be spread all over the world to be laughed at. Her family should keep her under wraps so all of these problems can be addressed and she can move on. As long as she is out and about, the TMZ site and all the others will hound her and record he every move. Leave her alone and let her deal with whatever her problems are IN PEACE.

@George Reese When drivers get behind the wheel while impaired, or crash into other drivers and flee the scene, then it becomes all of our problems. The roads are public. If you want to be left in peace, don't put others in harm's way with your irresponsible actions. Just my take on the situation... Best, Marie

marie, it seems when you use your patch staff account as an editor, you should be impartial

@me I don't believe advocating safety on the road lacks impartiality. The reader questioned why the story was relevant, I answered. Best, Marie

marie, seems george was talking about much-read sites like TMZ and wasn't really responding to the straight-forward NEWS piece from the "city news service" on the patch, but i could be wrong....i am curious to know what your personal contribution to the article was though since you added your name to the byline .....just curious
