Amanda Bynes Charged with DUI

Amanda Bynes' April Mugshot

The Los Angeles City Attorney’s Office has formally charged child star Amanda Bynes with driving under the influence following an April 6th arrest, as reported by PL News.

In the formal complaint against her, it is noted that Bynes also allegedly refused a peace officer’s request to submit to and/or complete a chemical test to see how much—if any—substance was in her system.

Arraignment has been scheduled for tomorrow at 8:30 a.m., but because the charge is a misdemeanor, Bynes only has to send a lawyer in her place.

Since her April bust, the actress has perhaps coincidentally embarked on a series of driving snafus, including a painfully slow three-point turn witnessed by droves of West Hollywood revelers and the unwitting fender-bending of an SUV, which she says she never knew about until the other driver filed a report. Then TMZ reported that police were informed of but never pursued the allegation that she rear-ended another car on the freeway and drove off.

Bynes sent the following tweet to the Barack Obama Twitter account:

“Hey @BarackObama… I don’t drink. Please fire the cop who arrested me. I also don’t hit and run. The end.”
