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."

It's hard not to question the judgement of a person who thinks the President can fire a local police officer, or that she is even relevant enough to influence him to do so. No problem though, seeing that the average jail sentence for celebrity DUI is 45 minutes.

I can't beleive she asked Obama to help her. What is wrong with these celebs? How narcissistic does a person have to be to think the President of the United States is at their beck and call?


If she thinks Obama is going to lift a finger to help her, she is now in need of serious psychiatric help. Her and Halle Berry can carpool to the therapist.

Wow, she really is the next Lindsay Lohan. Lindsay took to twitter and claimed her arrest for theft was a human rights violation and Amanda abuses twitter to seek a presidential pardon and the unlawful firing of a peace officer doing his job. #clulessidiots

Trash for blacks. Send her to a man's prison - she would enjoy all those blacks using her.

I used to love this girl growing up. I watched her shows and thought she was a good role model. When did she turn into such a pos?

She's after Linds' Bad Girl crown. Don't worry, Linds, Amanda's just an amateur next to you. Which gives me an idea...

She made a mistake, get over it. Why is everyone putting her on some pedestal? She is just a person who also happens to be a celebrity give her a break, or at least give her a chance. I think she has more than deserved it.
