Amanda Bynes rear ended a car to make her third hit and run: she was a ‘hot mess’

I had to revisit our Amanda Bynes coverage to realize that the former Nickelodeon star, 26, just had her third known hit and run, and that’s not even counting her DUI arrest where she hit a cop car. To recap: Amanda got arrested for DUI in April after she hit a police car. A week later she was photographed after a night out at the Chateau Marmot texting while driving, during which she ran over a curb. Then in May she hit a car while trying to pass on the right and acted like she had no idea it happened when cops caught up with her. Amanda was not charged for that incident. Then we heard that Amanda had another hit and run in April on the freeway (the news of which didn’t come out until late May) and that she wouldn’t be charged for that either due to a lack of witnesses.

In response to all this news about what a terrible drunken driver she is, Amanda tweeted President Obama in June that the arresting officer (probably the one whose car she rammed into, since she wasn’t busted for any of the other incidents) should be fired. No joke. She wrote “Hey @BarackObama… I don’t drink. Please fire the cop who arrested me. I also don’t hit and run. The end.” It appears that Amanda has since shut her Twitter account down. And here I was hoping that she would get indignant about this latest story that she rear-ended yet another car on Saturday night and fled the scene. The woman whose car she “allegedly” rammed into described her as a “hot mess” and told TMZ that Amanda tried to downplay the damage, even pushing her bumper back up. Amanda left the scene before cops could get there and refused to provide any contact information. Here we go again.

A Los Angeles woman filed a police report yesterday afternoon claiming Amanda Bynes rear-ended her and then, after a brief conversation, drove off without exchanging insurance information … TMZ has learned.

Kisa (last name witheld) tells TMZ she was driving her Toyota Corolla on Ventura Blvd. in the San Fernando Valley when she was struck by a woman in a black BMW. Kisa tells TMZ she didn’t recognize the woman at first — because she “looked like a hot mess” — but once they began talking, she realized it was Amanda Bynes.

Kisa says she got out her insurance card to exchange information, but says Bynes “seemed nervous about that.” She says Bynes told her the damage to the Corolla didn’t look that bad and proceeded to push her bumper back into place.

Bynes then, according to Kisa, said they didn’t need to exchange info since neither car was damaged badly. Kisa maintains, however, that Amanda’s car had “significant” damage to it.

Kisa says she continued to try and exchange info with Bynes, but Bynes just got in her car and drove off.

Kisa tells TMZ she called the police, who responded to the scene and took a hit and run report. Kisa says when she told the officer who hit her, the officer replied, “Didn’t she just get a DUI?”

[From TMZ]

Amanda wasn’t charged for the other two hit and runs, so I’ll doubt she’ll be charged for this one. Considering how many times we’ve heard that she’s hit other cars and fled the scene in just a few months, it’s doubtful that she’ll voluntarily sober up or hire a cab whenever she gets blotto. In Amanda’s mind she’s completely innocent and able to drive. “Gimme da keys!” I just hope someone steps in before she seriously harms herself or someone else. This is in LA, though, do you think that’s going to happen? It seems like her DUI case is still pending after she plead not guilty. She wasn’t cited for three separate hit and runs, I doubt they’re even admissible.

    Are they going to wait till she kills someone to do anything?

  2. JustaGirl says:

    She’s going to end up killing someone. :(

    Lilo has a replacement

  4. Aria says:

    This girls (Lindsay, Amanda) had everything to succeed but decided to become this hot messes. I don’t understand it.

    Shame on them!

  5. Talie says:

    It would’ve been hilarious if she had tried to pass herself off as Lindsay Lohan.

  6. Birdie says:

    Celebrities in Hollywood can do whatever they want! Lilo sniffing cocaine while on probation? No problem. Bynes hitting every single car in H’wood? No biggie. OJ killing 2 people..INNOCENT!

  7. Prinny says:

    This girl needs some driving lessons.

    • the original bellaluna says:

      What she really needs is to hire a driver, because I’m pretty sure her CADMV driving record will negate a valid driver’s license. (Just because she wasn’t charged doesn’t mean the DMV isn’t keeping track of her “points” re: accidents.)

  8. keats says:

    Arrested Development taught me that this is considered a ‘spree’

  9. Jax says:

    Next time I’m I’m Cali, I’m so using these two as the defense to any illegal actions I might accidentally incur. As far as I’m concerned they were witnesses. We will call it the By-Lo defense. And it will be epic.

  10. Shuffle says:

    Amanda “Hit Ya Behind” Bynes is training to be the next Blohan. You have to wonder if the booze or drugs are effecting her.

    Seems much like Blohan she just cant not be impaired behind the wheel. Well I think it is matter of time before she injures someone seriously. I believe she bails like Lohan so she can’t be tested for drugs or alcahol, and miss getting a blood test.

    If she takes off she knows they can’t prove she was impaired before hand as she can say well I had a drink at home or I smoked a doobie here.

    I think someone told her how to avoid a DWI, and she is gaming the system, but sooner or later she is going to get caught.

    Nice….this bitch is going to end up killing someone innocent and no one did anything to stop it.

    CDAN-blind item reveal

    This former B+ teen actress who has had a really bad year is suffering from some severesubstance abuse issues and her friends all blame a boyfriend who got the actress hooked on everything to keep her under his thumb. It worked. Ever since the pair started dating, she gave up even trying to act and the only thing she cared about was doing exactly what he wanted when he wanted it and gave up any kind of regular life. Even though he cheats with several other women he expects her to be available to him whenever he calls and she refuses to be away from her phone at any time and drives herself crazy worrying she has missed a call from him. He leaves her for weeksat a time and it drives her even more crazy and then will rush back into her life setting demands. He has spent a great deal of her money. Her friends try to convince her she needs to dump him and to go to rehab just to escape him if not to get clean. 

    Answer: Amanda Bynes/Kid Cudi

    • TheOriginalKitten says:

      Amanda Bynes is/was dating Cudi?? Since when?

      (Hi Mort! :) )

      • MorticiansDoItDeader says:

        Hey Kitten!

        Isn’t that a weird pairing? Before she became a tweeker I think she would have been a good match for Drake. He strikes me as more sensitive.

      • TheOriginalKitten says:

        SO weird! Like hard-for-my-mind-to-grasp level of weirdness. Agree that Drake would seem to be much more her speed!

    • the original bellaluna says:

      Hi Mort! I read that one before it was solved, and she was my first guess. (I left you a reply, on the TC thread, I think.)

    • drawbackwards says:

      Well this makes sense. Maybe she really doesn’t drink, as reported to Mr. President. And the “I” in DUI is only related to alcohol, duh! I guarantee that was her logic. Any guess on her on of choice?
      I’m surprise CDAN called her B-list. Getting Paris Hilton’s sloppy seconds (remember old Dougy) would usually lower one to V-list… V being for Valtrex.

  13. TheOneAndOnlyOnly says:

    You have to love the utter hypocrisy of hollywood lecturing us peons on how we should think, vote, and act, and yet you are nothing in lalaland if you can’t make someone a lot of green; this girl’s use by date has passed and now she’s left to her empty self-destructive ways – where are at least some of the people that profited from the shows she was in attempting to help her?

  14. birdgherl says:

    What is so important that she needs to be texting while driving? This makes me nuts.

  15. Ellie66 says:

    I have no clue to who this girl is but she will get away with it Til she kills someone and then probably just go to rehab for a while. And who is Kid Culo?

  16. tru tru says:

    Lindsay Lohan 2.0 WATCH and wait for it.

    she is gonna kill someone, then maybe they will take note.


  17. Incredulous says:

    What if Amanda crashes into Lindsay? Does the world end?

    • Krock says:

      OMG thank you for the morning Lulz! hahaha! Maybe if that happens we will all end up in a parallel universe hahaha

      • the original bellaluna says:

        Couldn’t THEY just be the ones to end up in a parallel universe? One that’s like a real-life Grand Theft Auto BH/LA version? (That’s what they’re living, after all.)

        They can also suck Beiber; the Kartrashians; all reality “stars” EVERYWHERE (past, present, and future); and the entire MTV, VH1, and E! networks into the vortex with them.

    • Amanda_M87 says:

      OMG how morbid but LOL at the same time

  18. Krock says:

    How and why does she keep getting away with this?? Are the laws in CA really that lax? Can’t use the ol’ “shes a celebrity” excuse because she is basically an unknown. Its not like she’s a high profile celebrity. What the heck is going on over there in CA?

    • the original bellaluna says:

      They’re only lax in LA and H-Wood. Don’t for one second believe that “everyday Joes and Janes” get this sort of treatment.

      I swear, there’s gotta be a question on the LA County Sheriffs’ Dept (and BH/LA/OC PD’s) application that states:

      “Anything short of a ‘star’ committing manslaughter/murder shall not culminate in an arrest.” True or false. (circle one)

      • Izzy says:

        It really is RIDICULOUS what lousy celeb drivers get away with. I was rear-ended last weekend, and the jerk TOOK OFF. I got his license plate though (*evil grin*) and gave it to the cops. They are actually investigating! They found the guy! They interviewed witnesses! They got a copy of my insurance estimate in case they can get court-ordered restitution!

        In other words, the cops in my neck of the woods are doing their jobs. Not sure why celebs have such a completely different standard.

        Please pass me a Cracktini. I promise I won’t drive tonight. :)

  19. Christian says:

    Hire. A. Driver.

  20. Shannon says:

    Jesus Christ on a cracker, this woman needs to STOP driving! It’s not cute, someone will die if she keeps it up, and it’s not that flipping hard to find a cab in LA when you’re toasted!

    I swear she just keeps doing this because she got so much attention after the first time.

  21. erika says:


    This is GOOD news ladies! since HoLo will soon be dead (she’s got her 27th bday coming up but i think she’ll be gone by 26)…

    Empty Beaujolais Bottle Bynes is ready to take her place! hurray!!!

  22. Jill says:

    Wait…….what? Third?

  23. erika says:

    Well, Lessons learned…

    1) if you hit someone, DENY DENY DENY that you did it, they have no proof. tell em you are just a ‘homebody’ these days. Get Matt Lauer to vouch for you.

    2) just give another person’s name, like LoHo, or Beaujolais Bynes, and RUN!

    3) I GAURANTEE you if you keep TEXTING and DRIVING you will DIE…

    or…you’ll end up like my friend, Gio, who was texting and crossing the street and got hit by a truck…

    he’s now a QUADRAPLEGIC…how’s that for new set of wheels?
