Amanda Bynes: Judge Orders Her Not To Drive Anymore
Amanda Bynes may finally be off the road.
The 26-year-old actress was ordered by L.A. Superior Court Judge Marsha Revel not to drive without a valid driver’s license, a ruling that comes four days after Bynes was pulled over for driving at night without her headlights on, E! News reported.
Amanda Bynes was actually able to get out of the incident itself, TVGuide.com noted. The officer who pulled her over didn’t ask for her license — which had been suspended — but Bynes was pinched when footage of the incident ended up on the internet.
Though the lawyer for Amanda Bynes, Bob Wilson, had claimed that her license hadn’t been suspended, the judge found otherwise in a ruling handed down Thursday.
“We haven’t completed her DMV hearing so she couldn’t have lost her license on that,” Wilson reportedly told the judge, but afterward he confirmed to E! News that the license was in fact coming up as suspended. TVGuide.com noted that Amanda Bynes’ license was likely suspended in April when she was pulled over after hitting a police car and refused to take a Breathalyzer test.
Since the incident in April, Bynes has been getting into a number of dust-ups on the road. She was charged for another hit-and-run in August, and, just yesterday, TMZ.com reported that she was seen smoking what appeared to be marijuana and driving aimlessly around Los Angeles.
Her next hearing will take place September 21 and address the conditions of her freedom and bail, E! News noted. While the judge did not order her to be there for the hearing, she did note that, “It would seem like Ms. Bynes would need to be here in court on that day.”
If she is convicted on the hit-and-run charges, Amanda Bynes could be looking at six months in jail and up to a $1,000 fine for each count.
