Actress Amanda Bynes charged with driving on suspended license

  • Former child star Amanda Bynes has been charged with two misdemeanour counts of driving on a suspended license.

    The actress was stopped by police on Friday in Burbank city on Friday.

    According to documents seen by celebrity website TMZ.com, Bynes was cited by the same airport authority police official twice on September 16 for driving on a suspended license near Burbank's Bob Hope Airport. The second incident occurred just an hour and a half after the first.

    Bynes' black BMW has been impounded and she is due to appear at Burbank Superior Court by October 16 to address the charges.

    Bynes, 26, is also set to appear in court next week to address two misdemeanour hit-and-run charges, relating to two separate incidents in April and August.

    She was also charged earlier this year with driving under the influence after she hit a police car in April. She will attend a pre-trial hearing on October 29.

    In recent months, the actress has been involved in a series of minor car accidents and violations in and around Los Angeles.

    Bynes starred in her own TV comedy sketch show on Nickelodeon at the age of 13. Her last film, Easy A, was released in 2010.

    She has persistently denied claims of drinking and driving. "I am doing amazing," Bynes told People magazine earlier this week.

    She also told People that she was retiring from acting and moving to New York to launch a fashion line.
