Celebrity Amanda Bynes, from the WB’s ” What I like About You,” and the movie “Easy A'” has been charged with a hit-and-run, in connection with two separate traffic accident violations; one occurring in April, and the other in August of this year.
Apparently, the first incident took place on April 10, followed by the second on August 4th, where Bynes was charged for leaving the scene of two separate accidents, without providing the proper information. There is also suspicion that Bynes was intoxicated during the first traffic violation, which is probably why Bynes did not want to provide the requisite information.
According to Bynes’ Los Angeles attorney, the actress’ arraignment has been scheduled for September 27th. She had not yet pled guilty to either charge.
