Actress Amanda Bynes charged with DUI
LOS ANGELES – Los Angeles prosecutors have charged actress Amanda Bynes with driving under the influence roughly two months after authorities claimed she grazed a sheriff’s patrol car in an early morning accident.
The 26-year-old will be arraigned Wednesday morning in Beverly Hills but doesn’t have to attend the hearing. Instead, she can have a lawyer enter a plea.
Bynes was arrested April 6 after authorities said she scraped a patrol car making a turn.
The misdemeanor complaint filed Tuesday alleges she refused to take a test at the time that could’ve determined whether she was drunk or under the influence of drugs. Because of her refusal, authorities may suspend her driver’s license for a year.
Her publicist, Melissa Raubvogel, didn’t immediately return an email.
Bynes appeared in the Nickelodeon series “What I Like About You” and the film “Easy A.”
