Amanda Bynes

Charged with Hit-and-Run

EXCLUSIVE

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.

The ourts should make an example out of her and put in jail, but they won't. She'll be given probation or sent to rehab. If she messes up again 3 strikes and she's in jail. She needs to be taught a lesson, and stop acting like Lohan, and the other Skank Paris Hilton.

Yup    

Lindsay lohan could back up over a family of baby ducklings while strangling a sick baby bunny while drunk & with a bag of cocaine in plain sight, and she wouldn't serve a day in jail. Switch her out with Amanda Bynes, who's 10,000x cuter, doesn't have the arrogant entitled blowhan attitude, and has the most kick ass pair of legs & hot ass in Hollywood. She won't spend a day in jail; she'll get some sort of laughable miniscule fine & public service as her sentence IF she's convicted. IF...

I doubt that they would sentence her to anything but a token jail time, since even non-celebs have a revolving door in LA at the moment. She also doesn't have a history of criminal activity, her crazy behavior seems relatively recent. My guess would be lengthy probation, maybe some house arrest at most, and very likely a long stint of court-ordered rehab on her dime. They very likely will include a mandatory psych evaluation and therapy. She really wasn't like this not so long ago, the tabloids skipped over her in her younger years.

Who Knew    

If Lohan is an example of the justice system, she'll probably get a good citizen medal.

We spent more time reading the title to this story then she did worrying about the entire incident. She will get no jail time, go on probation, go to rehab and get some magazine interview deals where she will boo-hoo her life and her recovery from being a "addict". Im starting to think this B**** did this on purpose because people were beginning to forget her name, she make money off this and we are all to blame for giving two craps about a spoiled brat with no empathy for possibly hurting or killing another human being.

OMG she might go to jail you guys!

Maybe after her tenth DUI she'll be told to pick up some litter, and then get a stern talking-to from the judge when she doesn't get around to it.
