Amanda Bynes

Charged with Hit-and-Run

9/5/2012 10:38 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
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.

This is a terrible shame. She was such a sweet kid. Apparently, however, she has fallen pretty far. She seems to need the shock of criminal charges to wake up. Hopefully this will cause her to change her ways.

If this stupid b tch bynes refuses to get a driver, the least she could do is have a tow truck follow her around all night. When the accident happens, she won't have to call or even wait to get towed. Just drive off a cliff already, you're a child star has been that nobody wants to see anymore.

What about Lindsay? When do they actually prosecute her for her crashes? Oh, I forgot, the law doesn't apply to her.

She needs a Brittney style conservator and rehab or else she's going to hurt herself and someone else. Sad to see such promise being wasted, where are her parents? Why haven't they taken steps to get her the help she obviously needs?

"If convicted on both counts, she faces up to a year in jail." Which means, 1 night in jail and a revived career? YAY Hollywood!
