Amanda Bynes Charged with Two Counts of Hit-and-Run

Amanda BynesUpdate: According to the Los Angeles Times, records from the California Department of Motor Vehicles say that Bynes’ license has been suspended due to the hit-and-run charges filed earlier this week.

Earlier: Amanda, Amanda, Amanda, what are we going to do with you? Try as she might — we’d like to think she’s trying, right? — Amanda Bynes can’t seem to stay out of trouble. According to, a spokesperson for the Los Angeles City Attorney’s Office confirms that Bynes is being charged with two counts of hit-and-run relating to alleged incidents from April and August.

In one incident, the LAPD told at the time that Bynes was rear-ended. “There were no injuries reported… there was exchange of information only,” Officer Rosario Herrera said. In the other, Bynes “left the scene” before the police arrived.

Bynes’ arraignment is scheduled for September 27. If she is convicted on both of the misdemeanor counts, she could face up to one year of jail time.

Regardless the outcome, we hope Bynes realizes it’s time to hire a chauffeur.

Celebrity Editor Abbey Stone hails from the fair isle of Martha's Vineyard, a lovely, vaguely dinosaur-shaped spot of land located off the coast of Cape Cod, MA, that is best known for exporting preppy salmon-colored pants. But the bright lights of New York City beckoned, and Abbey was lured away from her coastal haven to attend Barnard College. She graduated in 2010 with a degree in English and a much less useful minor in Dance. Abbey has been published in Dance Magazine, The Huffington Post, Time Out New York, and Popstar! magazine (where she learned more than she ever wanted to know about Justin Bieber). Abbey now lives in Brooklyn, where she spends her days watching stupid Internet videos and reading pretentious books.
