Popular Nickelodeon star Amanda Bynes was charged of driving with a suspended license on two accounts Friday morning after being stopped by the police in Burbank, Calif.
TMZ, a celebrity news portal, first discovered the reports filed in the Los Angeles Superior Court which stated that Bynes was stopped at two different traffic stops by the same airport authority official when driving near the Bob Hope airport. The second time she that got pulled over was only one and a half hours after the first stop.
The police found the "Big Fat Liar" star's license was suspended and gave her a ticket and impounded her car, a black BMW 5 series. She faces a maximum of six months jail time for these offences.
A Los Angeles Times report stated that it was on Aug. 25 that the "She's the Man" actress' license was suspended by the California Department of Motor Vehicles. And later on Sept. 12, an order was given by a judge to stay off the road, which she had apparently ignored as she was seen still driving her black BMW.
Apart from that, Bynes is facing a charge of DUI for damaging a police car in West Hollywood on Apr.6, but has pleaded not guilty. The 26-year-old is expected to appear in court to discuss this charge on Oct. 29 and by or before Oct.16 for the other two hit-and-run cases along with the suspended license charges.
TMZ reported last week that she locked herself in a dressing room for two hours in a Hollywood clothing store and was heard to have left in the middle of a spin class after taking off her t-shirt and applying make-up. It's no surprise then that on Friday, TMZ found out that due to Bynes' "extremely difficult" behaviour, her lawyer, agent and publicist have left her.
Interestingly enough, the troubled star told People magazine over the phone recently that she was "doing amazing" and as for the DUI case she said, " I don't drink and drive. It's all false."
She also told People that she had retired from acting and was moving to New York to launch a fashion line, as reported by Reuters.
