Amanda Bynes

Pleads Not Guilty

to Hit-and-Run

EXCLUSIVE

0927-tmz-amanda-bynes
Amanda Bynes just pled not guilty to two counts of hit-and-run, TMZ has learned.

TMZ broke the story ... Amanda was charged with both counts of hit-and-run earlier this month after two separate incidents -- one in April, another in August -- when she allegedly smashed into other cars and fled the scene.

Prosecutors initially declined to charge Bynes for the first hit-and-run incident -- but after the actress was accused of the second hit-and-run, they reopened case #1.

The L.A. City Attorney subsequently filed charges against Bynes stemming from BOTH incidents.

If convicted on both counts, she faces up to a year in jail. She's due back in court October 19th.

FYI -- Bynes is also still facing one DUI charge and TWO charges of driving on a suspended license.

Bynes was not in court for the hearing -- she's in NYC, where she's been shopping her face off for the past couple days ... and showing off a TON of leg.

This is Hollywood - 5 bucks says they will combine her 2 hit and runs, DUI, and 2 driving on a suspended license, they will then drop the driving on a suspended license charges and plea bargain the rest into 2 years of probation.

That's right...who cares? I think we've all had enough of this loser's exploits. Just make sure she doesn't get behind the wheel anytime soon...we don't need anyone getting injured or killed because of her.

Good Luck Amanda as you try to escape your satanic Hollywood controllers. It's obviously from all the "Hit pieces" TMZ is putting out that they aren't happy about it. Prayers for you.

Stop it with the partying and shopping and whatever, "your face off", do you have any idea how stupid this sounds?

They should throw her in jail. By pleading not guilty the city has to spend money to put her on trial. She should have accepted a plea instead of costing the taxpayers money. When she is found guilty, the judge should make her pay all court costs.

Of course she pled not guilty. Who doesn't.


I don't believe she's pulling a Lohan. Dumb ass stupid yes. Getting caught worse. That could change if they make her an example because of what Lohans been able to get away with.


Only Lohan is much worse.


Harvey and TMZ need to stop over exaggerating.

First off, if Bynes per TMZ "smashed" into other cars, Bynes would not be able to go anywhere let alone drive away.

She was charged for hit and run twice now. Not good. But she didn't "smash" into cars. She hit car or car's and kept going. Legally that's a hit and run.


Bynes other seperate charges is DUI and driving on a suspended licence twice. Again, not good.


Hopefully, Bynes will listen to the judge "don't even think about getting behind a wheel."
