Amanda Bynes Accused of Hit-and-Run
Bynes, 26, allegedly slammed a 5 series BMW into another car on San Fernando Valley’s 101 Freeway before fleeing the scene this April 10. The victim, whose name was not disclosed, followed the culprit and wrote down the license plate number before losing the car at a red light.
How did the cops managed to track down Bynes?
The California Highway Patrol ran the plate number and deduced that the BMW was a rental from Enterprise. The victim then contacted the rental company, who told her that the rental car was taken out under the She’s The Man actress’ name.
Although the victim was able to identify Bynes in a photo lineup, the case was thrown out by the LA City Attorney’s Office because it failed to have an independent witness to name the troubled starlet as the woman behind the wheel, according to TMZ.
This alleged hit-and-run marks the third time Bynes has been in a car accident in which law enforcements officers were called in for investigation. On April 6, Amanda was arrested for a DUI after side-swiping a police cruiser in an attempt to pass it at an intersection. She was placed in jail for the night with bail set at $5,000.
A month later, she again collided with another vehicle — this time a pick-up truck — at an intersection near Crescent Heights and Melrose in Los Angeles. However, the damage was so minor that no arrests were made for the this particular incident.
Following her DUI, Bynes was also snapped texting behind the wheel outside the Greystone Manor. In the state of California, it is illegal to text on your phone while driving.
Give her many fender benders, do you think it’s a good idea for Amanda to stay off the road for a while? Get in on the conversation, below.
