EXCLUSIVE

UPDATE -- Bynes took to her Twitter page Sunday night to deny the story, writing, "I cant help but laugh at all of you writing fake stories about me. I was not in any hit and runs. I don’t drink so the DUI is false."

Amanda Bynes slammed into a car on the 101 Freeway in the San Fernando Valley on April 10 ... then fled the scene -- according to the victim who told cops the troubled actress was the culprit.

The culprit was driving a 5 series BMW at the time of the accident. The victim gave chase, got off the freeway, but the culprit blew a red light, never to be seen again. The victim was able to write down the license plate number.  She only got a profile view of the woman driving the BMW.

CHP showed up, ran the plate and determined it was a rental vehicle. Officers told the victim the culprit was driving an Enterprise rental car. The victim then contacted Enterprise, who told her the person who had rented the car was Amanda Bynes. 

The victim then showed up at a CHP substation and ID'd Amanda from a photo lineup. And get this ... the photo of Amanda was taken just 4 days earlier -- it was her mug shot from a DUI arrest.  Amanda was driving in West Hollywood on April 6 when she clipped a cop car and was immediately popped for DUI.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ ... the case was referred to a filing officer at the L.A. City Attorney's Office who immediately rejected it because there was no independent witness fingering Amanda as the phantom driver.

Amanda was accused earlier this month of hitting a car in Hollywood and then fleeing the scene.  She told cops she did not feel the impact and was not ticketed.

So they don't want to proceed with prosecution because technically there wasn't an actual eye witness. Now you better believe that if it was you or I who was the renter of a vehicle that committed a hit a run, we'd be prosecuted.

They IMMEDIATELY REJECTED THE CASE? Why is this at the very end of the article? They immediately rejected the case because there is only one witness? Honestly, WTF is wrong with California?

The "man" must be keeping her down for being a vanilla girl that likes chocolate men.

okay is this idiot going to actually have to RUN OVER a LIVE person before something is done. I am so freaking tired of these celebrities breaking the law and NOT having to suffer any consequences. Why even bother to arrest them, most of them never do any time; at least not any REAL time(vince neil). I never like to see people suffer, but sometimes it's hard to sympathize with a person when they are endangering other peoples lives.

Another one coming from the Disney school of hot messes. Any parent who lets their kid star in a Disney anything should have their head examined. Seriously, does Disney give lessons on how to use drugs and alcohol to it's young women.

OK TMZ, ....that was April 6 almost 6 weeks ago...6 weeks ago while she was still driving and before she decided to get professional help ...and the police didn't followup on it from lack of evidence....So what are you guys now a vigilantes of Hollywood who trials and convicts people in your gossip site and goes after them.?????
Or are you dirtying someone else up to take the pressure off of your pet gal Lindsay Lohan...either way you are wrong to do this...

I remember reading a few years ago about how she hates going out to clubs and that she's not that kind of starlet. She then abruptly retired from acting....

....only to unretire rather quickly and now is doing this. Looks like she feels this is the only way to gain fame.
