Amanda Bynes

Pleads Not Guilty to DUI

Amanda Bynes
insists she didn't drive under the influence back in April -- pleading "not guilty" today to DUI.

Amanda wasn't in court -- her lawyer entered the plea on her behalf.

TMZ broke the story ... Amanda was charged with one count of misdemeanor DUI yesterday -- and the D.A. has sought a sentencing enhancement because the actress refused to take either a breathalyzer or a blood test.

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

Because of jail overcrowding, it's unlikely Bynes will serve more than a few hours. A pretrial court date has been set for July 18th.

For her part, Amanda tweeted after she was charged yesterday, writing, "Hey @BarackObama... I don't drink. Please fire the cop who arrested me."

And she might get her wish -- Barack's in town today.

Has anyone ever checked to see if she's old enough to have a driver's license? Maybe it's me...but every picture TMZ puts up of her...she looks under 16.

She hit a police car and refused blood or breath tests. That doesn't resonate with me as someone who isn't guilty.

This will be interesting. She didn't take a breathalyzer or give blood, so how will they prove that she WAS under the influence and not just a bad driver?

This chick is sad. She needs to wake up pronto. Don't drive or club-hob, lay off the sauce and get some therapy.

Yeah, she hit another car and didn't notice because she was sober. Riiiiight. Just admit that you f_cked up, Amanda. There's enough video/photo evidence floating around to prove that you're just another Lindsay Lohan in training.

She is in A LOT of trouble. Even if she is gets little time in jail if she is convicted, she will have to take dui classes AND she will lose her license for a year.

California Implied Law requires a person HAS to take some kind of test. Here's part of the law:

"V C Section 23612 Implied Consent For Chemical Testing

Implied Consent For Chemical Testing

23612. (a) (1) (A) A person who drives a motor vehicle is deemed to have given his or her consent to chemical testing of his or her blood or breath for the purpose of determining the alcoholic content of his or her blood, if lawfully arrested for an offense allegedly committed in violation of Section 23140, 23152, or 23153. If a blood or breath test, or both, are unavailable, then paragraph (2) of subdivision (d) applies.

(D) The person shall be told that his or her failure to submit to, or the failure to complete, the required chemical testing will result in a fine, mandatory imprisonment if the person is convicted of a violation of Section 23152 or 23153, and (i) the suspension of the person’s privilege to operate a motor vehicle for a period of one year,

She can feel entitled all she wants, but she is going to lose her license for a year!
