Amanda Bynes

Charged with Hit-and-Run

EXCLUSIVE

0905-amanda-bynes-tmz
Amanda Bynes
has been charged with TWO counts of hit-and-run -- after allegedly smashing into some car and fleeing the scene ... twice.

If convicted on both counts, she faces up to a year in jail.

We broke the story ... prosecutors recently reopened Bynes' hit-and-run case from back in April because the actress was accused of yet another hit-and-run last month.

Now, the L.A. City Attorney has taken the next step -- charging Bynes with two counts of misdemeanor hit-and-run, stemming from the two incidents.

As for the second alleged incident, we're told the "smoking gun" for detectives was that the damage to the victim's car matched the damage to Amanda's.

She's due in court September 27th.

Calls to Bynes' reps weren't immediately returned.

Every since she had all that plastic surgery, she acts and looks a little monster. A little jail time, sharing a cell with Bug Bertha would do her some good.

Amanda Bynes needs to get a reality check and so does her family. Called being in denial. What was she thinking oh thats right she wasn't. If she does not drink then she's doing something else and maybe she needs rehab or driving lessons or just both. Amanda remove yourself from the negativity in your life and the positive will appear. Get busy with your carreer if it's not in the dumps already by your behavior.

I always liked Amanda. It is sad to see her go down this path. That said TMZ STOP with how much jail time she could do, the only people in Cali that do serious prison time are the gang bangers. No actress is going to do any time. Ever hear of Lindsay Lohan?

paging the Lindsay Lohan express. Right. Her lawyer is going to get this knocked down to nothing. I find it hard to believe they rejected it once then brought it back after a second hit and run and her legal team won't bring that up. They'll end up throwing it out as a botched investigation.

Lindsay Lohan 2.0.

They'll let her go with a relative slap on the wrist and she'll continue to terrorize L.A. Too bad Brittany's handlers already have their hands full, they are missing out on a financial windfall by taking care of other out-of-control celebs.
