Amanda Bynes

Accused of ANOTHER

Hit-and-Run

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.

Our "justice"system is a joke...to rich people. Cops, prosecutors, and judges are kissasses to rich, famous people.

At one time I worked for Enterprise, and I would be very surprised if they released that information to anyone without a court order.

Wait a minute. The victim contacted Enterprise and they gave her the information about the renter? BULL****!!!! Car rental companies will never give out personal information about their clients. The liabilty they would face if the renter was somehow harmed because that info was released would be enormous. There is no way any national company would put themselves in that position. Someone is sending TMZ misinformation and they bought it. Can't believe Harv as a lawyer didn't spot that. Not saying this incident didn't happen but the part about Enterprise divulging the info to a random person calling up is a lie. The police department is the only one who can get that info.

My GOD!! Where is the Outrage coming from the community on this one?? This is the biggest load of crap I've ever heard.. If that was any REGULAR person.. that kept LEAVING THE SCENE OF AN ACCIDENT it would be a FELONY charge and we would be locked it! This dumb piece of sh@t slut thinks she can go around drunk driving and slamming into any car she wants and just drive away.. This is UNBELIEVABLE! She honestly thinks she is Above the Law!

"Victim contacted Enterprise, who told her the person who rented the car was Amanda Bynes"
---
Doubt it, rental car companies aren't allowed to disclose that information.
Story is suspicious right off the bat.
---
"ID'd Amanda from a photo lineup"
---
ID's a well know famous celebrity. must be true then :D
-
"L.A. City Attorney's Office immediately rejected it because there was no independent witness fingering Amanda as the phantom driver."
---
Of course they rejected it. There's no other witness...and the story is full of holes.
-
Maybe Amanda did do it and is guilty....but I doubt it based on this story.

Hate bynes. Desperate, dumb, bitch. I think her big nose is throwing her depth perception off behind the wheel.

It's a shame some innocent person is probably going to have to die for someone to do something about her driving drunk.

She needs "HELP" aka "ACTING ROLES"

Apparently, this is what you have to do to get a call back.

She really needs help. I love the movie "what a girl wants". She's good in these types of movies. Does she have parents who can help her like Britney's dad did.?

Are the police waiting for her to kill someone before they do something. Girl needs to be locked up as a menace to society and so she can "dry out". Take away her license, her key and impound her car before it's to late.
