Amanda Bynes

Bolts from Cops

During Traffic Stop

Amanda Bynes made a HUGE mistake during a traffic stop in L.A. yesterday ... she blew off the cop while he was writing the ticket and drove away from the scene ... TMZ has learned.

Bynes was originally pulled over for talking on a cell phone while driving yesterday afternoon. The officer approached the car and collected all of Amanda's information so he could write up the citation.

But Amanda didn't feel like waiting around ... and hit the gas before the cop could hand over the ticket for the actress to sign.

We're told the cop decided NOT to pursue Bynes because he didn't feel she was dangerous ... and besides, he already had all of her information.

Later that day, Bynes rolled by the police station and signed the ticket ... but we're told she's not off the hook for leaving the scene early.

Authorities are currently investigating the situation ... and will decide if Bynes should face further charges for her untimely exit.

Calls to Amanda's rep have not been returned.

She'll get off since she's (somewhat) famous.

LAPD giving "celebs" preferential treatment once again. If this was you or me or a black man the LAPD would have chased her down.

.

Who does she think she is? Hey little girls you are not all that.

If that was me that did that...the LAPD would show up at my house, beat the crap out of me and haul me off to jail. It's amazing what a pretty girl can get away with...especially some hack actress chick.

She probably got scared thinking they would eventually find the drugs in the car, so she drove off, got rid of it and went back to sign the ticket. Don’t know why she even bothered, its not like she would face any real punishment like us regular civilians!
