Amanda Bynes

Pulled Over in L.A.

After License Suspended

9/10/2012 12:49 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF


Amanda Bynes was pulled over in L.A. last night after her driver's license was suspended -- but somehow, she didn't end up in jail.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ, Bynes was pulled over for driving without her headlights on. We're told she was given a verbal warning and sent on her way.

It's unclear if officers ran the actress' license -- because if they did, they might have noticed it was reportedly SUSPENDED last week after the actress was slapped with two misdemeanor hit-and-run charges.  She also refused to take a breathalyzer after being busted for DUI, and that triggers an automatic 1-year license suspension.

It's unclear if the license has since been reinstated -- but with such a short time frame, it's VERY unlikely.

Calls to Bynes' camp were not returned.

wow. u know they dont suspend ur licencse right away right? they actually have a set date when ur license is suspended! usually u get a month to drive on ur ticket then ur suspension starts. nice try though on trying to make this look like a celebrity got out of a ticket....she aint even really famous anymore.

Let's say that the license suspension hasn't gone in to effect yet. You'd think that all the negative publicity and the embarrassment of her recent driving mishaps would be enough to keep her off the road! Get a friggin driver (and lay off the prescription pills, booze and blow)!

So they let her drive away from being pulled over with a SUSPENDED LICENSE! Plus having two misdemeanor charges for hit and run.
Were these Los Angele's cops scared because they pulled over a celebrity and didnt want to get sued ?
If this was normal people like us we be sitting in jail!
This is not right i hope this gets lots of attention and those cops get in trouble for not doing their job!

I'm thinking she has paid alot of attention to all of the Lindsay Lohan train wrecks over the past few years, and may be "deconstructing" in front of the paparazzi cameras to jump start a career.

Another one bites the dust to self destruct. To much to fast.young, immature, attention seekers. Intervention is needed now. She's crying out for someone.

Uh TMZ, you don't automatically go to jail for driving with a suspended license. As a matter of fact, people rarely are arrested for that violation. They may be sentenced to jail for it after multiple violations. So I'm not sure why you said "somehow, she didn't go to jail."
