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.

If she gets sent to the crowbar hotel I bet she wishes she had Amanda-hug-n-kiss.

BTW that shot of her is rather porny.

I've been a fan of Amanda's since What I Like About You and this just makes me sad. I hope she can turn her life around, she's too good for THIS type of publicity.

Celebs are being chased like they are criminals and when someone gets hurt they get charged like one. IMO if you have a camera in your hand it's your own fault.

What are you doin Amanda, You are a very talented girl and I know you are better than this, turn things around and better your life. Maybe you should get backinto acting and get a chauffer before you end up killing someone and you ruin the rest of your young life
