Amanda Bynes

Charged with Hit-and-Run

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.

Truth    

Heres the verdict: She makes a deal, pleads guilty, gets probation and mandatory rehab. Hollywood fame can do more damage then you can imagine. Lohan has had one too many chances lets hope this girl can be saved. Robert Downey did it and he was a train wreck.

Now why can't they charge and lock up Lohan for doing the same thing just about a dozen more times plus accidents including totaling a brand new Porsche? Doesn't matter anyway, they never do anything to v=celebs in California.

Am glad to see she has finally been charged. This is long overdue. She is a menace behind the wheel.
