Amanda Bynes. Hairspray

Hairspray Star Amanda Bynes Charged

Actress Amanda Bynes has been charged with two counts of hit-and-run after allegedly fleeing the scene of a car accident twice this year.

The Hairspray star pleaded not guilty to driving under the influence after colliding with a police car in West Hollywood in April. The case was eventually thrown out as there were no independent witnesses to the incident.

But prosecutors in Los Angeles re-opened the case after she was accused of another smash and dash last month.

The actress is due in court on September 27 and faces a year behind bars if convicted, reports
