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."

What a f_cking idiot. If you're going to f_ck up, at least own up to it. We all saw the pictures and videos of her stumbling out of clubs at 2am. We all saw the video of the paparazzi begging her not to drive because she was so drunk. Pictures may lie, but videos sure as hell don't. You've been caught, Amanda. Just admit that you messed up and move on. No one's buying your "I don't drink" story.

Amanda Bynes asked President Obama, on twitter, to fire the cop that arrested her for a DUI in April. Do you think this is inappropriate? Vote at Nationwidevotes.com

Don't tell me we've got another little liar a la Lohan on our hands. We've all seen the photos, the videos, and heard the reports. Denying it only makes you look like a dirtbag. Just accept it, do what is required of you, and put it behind you. Don't turn it into a career like Lilo has.

Does she really think the President will step in and ask a local government to fire a policeman because a self-absorbed celebrity whined about it? Delusional. Simple, Amanda: you have to play by the same rules we do. If you don't drink, take a breathalyzer and prove it. Simple.
