There are some serious question marks surrounding Amanda Bynes’ alleged hit and run over the weekend – especially considering Los Angeles police don’t even know if it was actually her, Celebuzz has confirmed.

“I can’t say she’s a suspect,” says Watch Commander Lieutenant Debra Brousten with the San Fernando Valley Traffic Division.

“I can’t confirm it was Amanda Bynes. Just because someone says it’s her, doesn’t mean it’s her. We’re only getting one side of the story.”

A woman who has been identified only as Kisa reportedly filed a police report on Saturday afternoon claiming the 26-year-old actress’ black BMW rear-ended her Toyota Corolla. And after a brief verbal exchange, Bynes fled the scene without exchanging insurance information.

Right now the allegations against the Hairspray star are based on just one witness’s word and until police have more information it could take months to solve.

“We don’t know if it was a valid identification,” says Brousten.

“The case hasn’t been assigned to a detective yet. But once it is, there will be follow up, including talking to the victim and we’ll go from there.

“It could take a week or two months.”

This isn’t Bynes’ first brush with the law.

In March she drove away from police during a traffic stop for illegally using her cell phone.

In June she pleaded not guilty after being arrested two months earlier for suspicion of driving under the influence after allegedly sideswiping a sheriff's patrol car.

She was also accused of two other hit-and-run incidents in April and May, but neither ended up in charges.

    Duh!!! How stupid can this woman be? If it had been Amanda, the woman would have written down her license plate number.

    I'm not a cop but the one thing that get's me about Amanda Bynes new hit and run is this. Sine the woman was talking with her and then Amanda drove away why didn't the woman who supposedly got hit by her didn't get Amanda's License Plate number. I know if I was hit by someone and they drove off I would try and get the License Plate number or at least part of it. I don't think it was Amanda I think it's just a woman who wants fame and money.
