Amanda Bynes Faces New Driving Charge

Amanda Bynes has been charged with knowingly driving on a suspended licence following two other traffic offence court cases in recent months.

The actress was charged on Friday in Burbank, California, with two counts of driving on a suspended licence, following an incident the previous Sunday that led to her car being impounded.

Police at Bob Hope Airport in Burbank, California, spotted the actress and impounded her car, airport officials said.

It is the latest in a series of run-ins with the police after a spate of driving offences, in which she faces charges of drink-driving and an alleged hit-and-run incident involving two accidents.

The Los Angeles City attorney's office accused Bynes of leaving the scene of the accidents, one on April 10 and another on August 4, without providing proper information.

The first incident occurred just days after Bynes was arrested on suspicion of drink driving.

She has pleaded not guilty in that case.

Bynes' driving licence was revoked in August, and last week a judge ordered her to stop driving.

The 26-year-old was also stopped by police on September 9 and let go with a warning just days after her licence suspension.

She was also photographed driving aimlessly and smoking an unknown substance.

The new charges were first reported by celebrity website TMZ.

Bynes is best known for her roles in television series What I Like About You and the film Easy A.

Her attorney Richard Hutton was not available for comment.
