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

More bad news for Hollywood’s latest wild child…

In the ongoing and ever-expanding story of her horrible driving record, Amanda Bynes has been charged with two counts of hit-and-run. The news comes in after two separate accusers claimed the retired actress struck their vehicles and fled the scene.

TMZ broke the news... Hollyscoop has confirmed the story with Los Angeles City Attorney, Frank Mateljan.

If convicted, at most, the actress could face up to a year in prison and a fine of $2000.

“The charges carry a maximum sentence of six months in jail and/or a $1,000 fine for each count,” he said in a statement. “The sentence can run consecutively, i.e. one year and/or a $2,000 fine.”

The incidents associated with the charges happened earlier this year on April 10 and August 4.

In the April accusation, a driver whose vehicle was struck on the 101 Freeway in Los Angeles identified Amanda as the culprit. The August incident happened when a second driver by the name of Kisa was rear ended on Ventura Boulevard in the San Fernando Valley.

In both scenarios, Amanda allegedly fled the scene before police arrived.

As Hollyscoop previously reported, though Byne’s first alleged hit-and-run was initially thrown out, the accusation was re-examined after the second incident came to light.

Amanda’s arraignment is scheduled for September 27 in Van Nuys. A voluntary appearance letter will be sent to her on September 5.
Calls to Amanda’s lawyer and rep have not been returned.
