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."

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.

Hey TMZ, how about having a little fun here. You guys were all angry yesterday that what's her face reality star lied to you. Why don't you guys post up that Tweet of her's and then post beneath that video footage you have of her so intoxicated she had to be carried out by two friends. You could then go tweet the link to the thread and find out what this airhead will post back. Come on, you know you want to.
