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.

What a disgusting sense of entitlement. She needs jail time for this.

who is this person? and why did she drive away from the cop and not get chased...double standards, just like the Christians and the homos and the lesbos. Hey Amanda, grow up and face the responsiblity of adulthood. Your fame is faded and your a hack, it's been almost 2 years since we've seen you in anything...the PD should have arrested you as soon as you rolled by the popo station, it would have happened to any other Christian, homo or lesbo.

Wow Amanda, I thought you were better than that. Spoiled, self-centered just like the rest.

What a bitch. If anyone other than someone famous tried that the cop would be on their tail and they would be going to jail.

You or me did that, we'd be chased and on the News Chopper for however long it took them to run us off the road and shoot us if they had to chase too far!

There is something fishy with LAPD or Law Enforcement in general in California. Someone else who is not famous or rich would be charge eluding Police (Felony). If I would visit LA, I will not trust cops there. She should been charged eluding Police & speculated Drug use that is possible reason she didn't stay there while waiting for the cop.

This makes no sense. Sounds like somebody took off with a story before getting all the facts together.

The LA cop obviously didn't get the memo regarding celebrity justice! I smell a stern warning coming on.
