Amanda Bynes

Smokin' From Drug Pipe

Driving Illegally

9/13/2012 11:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Amanda Bynes smoking from a drug pipe.Amanda Bynes was driving aimlessly for hours Tuesday ... while smoking out of what appears to be a marijuana pipe and tooling around L.A. on a suspended license.

The photos -- obtained by TMZ -- show Bynes taking multiple hits out of a pipe that is designed to look like a cigarette lighter in your car. 

0912_amanda_bynes_pipe_photos_v2In one shot, you see what appears to be remnants of marijuana in a cup holder. Some of the nugs appear burnt -- as if they had already been smoked.

0912_amanda_bynes_cup_holder_photosThe car is a mess. Trash is strewn everywhere. There are stains on the seat, empty bottles, dog hair and various other items.

Amanda started her journey at Baja Fresh in the San Fernando Valley, where she smoked from the pipe in the restaurant parking lot and ate tacos. She then went to a spa, where she spent 3 hours.  We're told Amanda then drove without purpose for several hours, sometimes cutting off other drivers and violating various traffic laws. Amanda ended up at Home Depot, where she again took a hit from the pipe in the parking lot.

TMZ has confirmed ... Amanda is driving illegally, because the DMV suspended her license on August 25. As for why her license was yanked, we believe it's because she refused to take a sobriety test when she was busted for DUI in April. In California, such refusal results in automatic license suspension.

TMZ broke the story ... Amanda has been charged with 2 hit-and-runs and various drivers have complained that she has either hit them as well or created peril.

7:19 AM PT -- We now know what Amanda was buying at Home Depot -- multi-colored light bulbs ... including a pink one.

I don't know about California --- But in the great state of New York, driving on a suspended license due to a DUI is a felony.

This girl clearly has mental issues -- as well as a drug problem. when the cops ultimately catch her out there driving on a suspended they will lock her up and she can explain to the Judge as to why it is she is driving on a license that she KNOWS has been suspended.

I'd like to call Amanda Bynes the next Lindsay Lohan -- but even as STUPID as Lindsay is, she NEVER drove on a suspended license or smoked weed out in the car.

This kind of stupidity is as sad as it is sickening.

I thought smoking pot in California is legal (as long as you have a license). Did that change? Probably not a good idea to do it while driving...but I'm not sure what she did was illegal, as far as the pot was concerned.

Why isn't anyone trying to get this girl some help before she is dead, kills someone else, or in jail?

She needs to get that car detailed. I'll guess that she most likely has a prescription for the weed, they are not hard to get in California, you just need to go to the right doctor. I agree with one of the previous commentors that mentioned she is showing signs of a mental disorder, I'm not excusing the baviour (there is no excuse for driving while high), but this reminds me of when Britney brokedown and would drive around aimlessly. Or she could just be another spoiled, entitled ex-starlet looking for attention.

Looks like the typical girl pothead to me....she just needs a driver. You cant tell me there arent a ton of people out there like this haha. She should stick to smoking in the house because of for her celebrity status, and mishaps with the law."cant drive high for sh!t. She should also try using a Volcano vaporizer with some high grade LA medical weed and you will stay high long enough till you get back home to do it again.

This girl is fearless now, because she knows she isn't going too jail, or anything big going to happen to her, because she has money. If it was my black ass in the car, it 9-10 would've taken 2 mins tops for the cops to be on my ass. This is crazy, but I'm nowhere surprise about it.

The girl is really depress and having a lot of money and nothing to do will lead her into coke and then meth when the money runs out. She needs to sober up and start working again.

There is always porn!

Throwback kid    

Like a lot of Hollywood child stars, she grew up and now feels like a loser. Amanda never went to college, she really doesn't have any job skills, the kind where she can get up and work a real job all day, and her acting career is done. So what does she do? she acts out, drinking, smoking weed and crashing into people's cars and leaving the scene. Amanda will eventually either kill herself or someone else in a car accident, and the LAPD seem to do nothing about this road menace

When I see Amanda I see Dana Plato all over again, a very self destructive young woman with addiction issues that will end up dead if she does not get help

so why are the cops letting her drive around? they stopped her earlier in the week but let her go? WTF you need to be a celebrity and then you are above the law?

Why didn't anyone call the cops on her while following her around everywhere. These photogs don't make any sense. What….would that be bad for business for something?

This bitch is breaking the law without a bit of concern and it seems that everyone around her is just fine with that.

Why is this chick walking the streets still?? After these pictures, the cops should be able to catch her and throw her ass in jail for more than 2 min. Also, is anybody sure she isn't living out of her car?? This girl needs help fast or she's going to end up dead.
