Amanda Bynes

Charged with DUI

6/5/2012 3:35 PM PDT UPDATED: 6/5/2012 4:36 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0605-amanda-bynes
Amanda Bynes has officially been charged with DUI after her arrest back in April -- when she sideswiped a cop car and allegedly attempted to flee the scene.

Bynes has been charged with one count of misdemeanor DUI -- and the D.A. has sought a sentencing enhancement because the actress refused to take either a breathalyzer or a blood test.

Bynes has not been charged with hit-and-run.

If convicted -- with the sentencing enhancement -- we're told Bynes faces a minimum of 48 hours in jail ... and a maximum of 6 months.

But because of jail overcrowding, it's unlikely Bynes will ever serve longer than a few hours.

4:35 PM PT -- And now this ... Amanda just tweeted, "Hey @BarackObama... I don't drink. Please fire the cop who arrested me. I also don't hit and run. The end."

Excellent! She is a liar.
I used to admire her. Now she is darn near close to becoming white trash. She has a crap attitude too. I'll make it a point to NOT see anything she is involved in.

Well I have always wanted to see her naked. This is step one to the inevitable playboy shoot, stripper movie, Terry Richardson muse, train that's just about to get started.

This girl appears to be headed for the tragic child-star self-destruction syndrome. She's not attractive or apparently, talented, enough to make it in the big leagues.

You would think refusing to a breathalyzer or a blood test, they would make sure she served atleast a day in jail even if they are over crowded. But this way she will get the same as people who cooperate.


Doesn't sound fair. Or smart for the legal system. It makes it so there is no downside to refusing to cooperate. Eh, oh well.

She will get credit for the night she spent in jail and then do an hour or something. Let's hope she learns from this.
Yes DUIs happen but it is best to never put yourself in that position.

How did they ascertain she was drinking if she refused a breath test.
Are drunk people cognizant enough to realize the ability to refuse a breath test.
Do drunk people comprehend the difference between actions that will get them busted or won't.
Did she really swipe the cop car on the pass, or did the cop drift and swipe her.
If she did swipe the cop car on a pass, does that mean she was drunk.
Is there any evidence she was drinking, is there any proof she was at fault for the swipe.
All questions that should and probably will be asked in court.
Maybe she's guilty. Maybe not.
