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.

Who knows for sure she was driving drunk....I believe this girl just can't drive, like Russell Brand, always running into stuff, water hydrants, poles, other cars. They need a driver. If she was driving drunk, then yes take away the keys before she hurts someone.

But wait! Hollywood celebs DO NOT GET PREFERENTIAL TREATMENT! Wonder if she's hired Shawn Holley yet? If not, she better get her number soon... Otherwise, she's gonna start getting treated like the regular criminal she is. Someone needs to tell the cops, and judge that she's special.

How in the hell is she getting away with all these violations? And major ones at that. If this had been a regular person their behind would be in jail.

We can only hope that when this POS Bynes chick ends up killing someone with her drunk driving that it will be a member of this City Attorney's family that she kills.

Just pull her license for 6 months to a year until she cleans herself up. No sense in endangering everyone else.

since the rental company already told the victim who it was the photo line up was tainted, she already had a hunch, this will get thrown out now.

someone throw her in rehab already.

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!

So-called victim's story is full of holes.
-
1) Rental car companies can't give names
-
2) Victim only saw profile of driver, not a face.
Then victim id'd the driver from photo...How?
-
3) "...case was referred to L.A. City Attorney's Office who rejected it"
---
---
If the victim is truthful about rental car and Amanda's name...would be solid proof:
-
1) Record of Amanda at Enterprise
-
2) Record would reveal make and model of car
-
3) Car would be damaged
-
4) Damage would reveal details of other car
---
---
Would City Attorney reject it with so much evidence?
.
More details may come out. Amanda may be guilty here.
But I doubt it, too many holes in the story.
