Amanda Bynes pulled over while driving on a suspended license, but nothing happened

Amanda Bynes was pulled over by cops on Sunday for driving without her headlights on. There were paparazzi there to catch this fine moment on film and TMZ has the video. The officers let her off with a warning. They must not have bothered to run her license or they would have seen that she doesn’t have one. Amanda’s license was suspended in connection with two hit and runs she had after she received a DUI. This is progress for the LA justice system, but it’s not without its flaws. She’s now driving on a suspended license. Of course she is. And of course she didn’t even get a slap on the wrist this time. Here’s the story from TMZ:

Amanda Bynes was pulled over in L.A. last night after her driver’s license was suspended — but somehow, she didn’t end up in jail.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ, Bynes was pulled over for driving without her headlights on. We’re told she was given a verbal warning and sent on her way.

It’s unclear if officers ran the actress’ license — because if they did, they might have noticed it was reportedly SUSPENDED last week after the actress was slapped with two misdemeanor hit-and-run charges. She also refused to take a breathalyzer after being busted for DUI, and that triggers an automatic 1-year license suspension.

It’s unclear if the license has since been reinstated — but with such a short time frame, it’s VERY unlikely.

Calls to Bynes’ camp were not returned.

[From TMZ]

This girl lives deep in denial “move that cone” land, so of course she will continue to drive. I just hope she gets busted again before she does some serious damage. Paris Hilton got some hard time for driving on a suspended license, but I know it’s not realistic to expect the same for Bynes. She’s too much like Lohan – inexplicably slippery when it comes to facing consequences. Those two make Paris look mature.

    She read the Cracken’s guide on How To Get Away with Anything.

  2. Riana says:

    When it comes to the law and celebrities they live in a different reality than the rest of us. Sucks that the system bends over for them.

    • Brown says:

      I agree. Hollywood is not real life. Celebrities are treated like special snowflakes there, which just exacerbates their sense of entitlement. I would love to see the law crack down on just ONE of them, even if just to make an example that no, you are not above the law, and yes, we will come for you.

      Blohan and Bynes would be a good place to start.

      • Andy says:

        Does Amanda Bynes really have power in Hollywood? That is what confuses me about how she keeps getting away w/this behavior.

      • the original bellaluna says:

        Andy – No, but neither does Blohan, and she manages to get away with everything short of actual homicide. Go figure!

  3. SleepyJane says:

    What is their secret? How do they get away with EVERYTHING? I can’t even pick my nose in my car without getting caught.

  4. Mia 4S says:

    WTF? LAPD now you are just asking to be made fun of! This girl’s issues have issues at the moment. It’s sad when the best you can hope for is that the only person she hurts is herself!

    • the original bellaluna says:

      Mia – Apparently you missed the story about how the LAPD is accused of kidnapping and beating a Deutsche Bank exec. If CB will allow it (please – it really is relevant when it comes to the LAPD & these “Stars Getting Off” stories), here’s a link to the video:

  5. logan says:

    It’s like her and Miz Crack-a-laka were separated at birth. What’s up California? you got some splainin to do.

  6. Winnie says:

    How could her license be suspended if she hasn’t been convicted of anything yet? Makes no sense.

    • L says:

      She refused to take a breathalyzer after being pulled over for DUI, and that triggers an automatic 1-year license suspension.

    • Erinn says:

      I think because of the refusal to take the breathalyser. It’s an auto one year suspension.

      EDIT: was typing that as L posted apparently :)

      • shannon says:

        I’m not proud to know this, but I got a DUI once and here in Georgia, and didn’t take the breathalyzer (sp?), and it worked like this: they took my physical license and gave me a temporary, paper license good for 30 days. At that point, I was able to apply for a ‘hardship license,’ which I did, so I could drive to work.

        At the hearing for the hardship license, the cop who arrested me did not show up, so my license was automatically reinstated fully. And trust me, I’m not a celebrity, by any means.

  7. L says:

    What the hell? How did they not run her plates at least? Seriously-I got pulled over for lights and when they came to the window they knew my name et all.

    I’m with SleepyJane-I want to know the secret. Is it just money? Fame? What’s the trick?

    • Katie Too says:

      If it was just suspended last week, it might not be in ‘the system’ yet. Paperwork processing is slow on today sort of thing even in small cities.

      • Katie Too says:

        ‘That’ not ‘today’ darn you Swype.

      • shannon says:

        Also totally possible, it hasn’t been processed. When I called the PD to get a copy of my report, they had no record of my even being arrested. Of course, I’d paid $400 to bond out and another $100 for the hearing, but no police report or anything. It was never reported to my insurance, and in the end, I found out my license had never even been suspended in the first place.

        Again, I’m not a celebrity and I’m not rich. But I got hella lucky I guess. I learned my lesson though. I spent months not driving because I thought I had a suspended license. Never again!!

  8. Lila says:

    If she and the Cracken could just run into each other, we could solve 2 problems at once.

    • KellyinSeattle says:

      This. Or give them cars like the Flintstones drove! Doesn’t help with a scarf over her head – take it off when you drive!….I think being a celeb has gone way too far in her thinking she’s so important.

    • KellyinSeattle says:

      This. Or give them cars like the Flintstones drove! Doesn’t help with a scarf over her head – take it off when you drive :) ! I think being a celeb has gone way too far in her thinking she’s so important.

  9. Ethel says:

    If she were a black or latina male they would have run a check and thrown her into jail. She needs a reality check. Is she still working? This one is living the same privileged life of La Lohan. She thinks rules and licenses are for other peep not her.

  10. gee says:

    Sometimes when you’re on a suspended license they;ll give you a permit to drive to and from work/school.. she COULD have been using one of those. But I’m inclined to believe she’s just continuing her Lohanesque spiral into crack delusions.

  11. Ri says:

    Why isn’t she in jail?

  12. lucy2 says:

    Her lack of regard for the law and others safety is astounding, as is her ability to continue to get away with stuff.

  13. DanaG says:

    There really is a law for them and us isn’t there? That is it I am going to become a celeb and ignore my parking fines etc. Amanda what has happened to her? I believe you need to either be working or going to school to get some sort of dispensation Amanda doesn’t do either. Too much time on her hands or she has seen how it has gotten Lindsay job offers. Bad offers but maybe it’s more then she is getting? What does Disney do to these girls?

    • the original bellaluna says:

      Dana, this may help. Courtesy of CDAN, this BI has been revealed as Amanda Bynes and Kid Cudi:

      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.

  14. PinkPunk says:

    What is up with that nasty hair color? Is washed up pink a thing now?

  15. Jacq says:

    LAPD + CA justice system = laughingstock

  16. Ms. Candy says:

    What is the difference btw her and Lindsey unless I miss something the site is something else. Why go easy on Amanda and not on Lindsey?? Why not let Amanda have it as well, am I missing something here (If so I stand corrected otherwise what is the deal)..

    I just don’t get it all LAPD does nothing to her and she is driving on a suspended license and she has been caught more than once doing this… She has nothing done to her… well damn

  17. NeNe says:

    I know it is a terrible thing to say,and I will get some slack on it, but I think that the only way these fools will learn to not drive is if they got into a horrible accident, and had to live with the consequences. It’s harsh, but I do not think they will learn. They have been given too many chances.

  18. Krock says:

    What’s with the crack powder all over the driver side door?

  19. bangarang says:

    A few years ago my friend got hit by a drunk driver she broke 2 legs and had to re-take 1st year of uni because she missed her exams because she was in hospital. So I think drunk drivers are scum

  20. TX Laney says:

    Ten bucks says she didn’t get a ticket for parking in the disabled parking spot.

  21. Jem says:

    I think her and Blohan should start car pooling… right off the side of a cliff, preferably.

  22. emmieapricot says:

    She’s such a loser… But in her defense, a friend of mine had her license suspended and it wasn’t immediately suspended. She knew in advance the date the license would be suspended.

  23. TheOneAndOnlyOnly says:

    What you said nene is harsh – but it’s true; there’s nothing more infuriating than a washed up d-lister acting like they are Marie Antionette of lalaland.

  24. Andy says:

    I would prefer a ride with Mr. Magoo.

  25. JD says:

    To get a hardship license in CA you have to PROVE you are working or going to school full-time. Is she even working now?

  26. Innocent says:

    I’m not a Paris fan at all but she wasn’t treated fairly at all and she dropped the appeal. I mean Shawn Holley was her lawyer. It was the now retired Judge that was in the wrong. I can’t see it happening to anyone else.
    Amanda definitely needs help if all those allegations about her lifestyle are true and they appear to be.

  27. the original bellaluna says:

    So, let me get this straight: AFTER her license got suspended for her DUI and TWO hit-and-runs, she DROVE HERSELF to get coffee (not work/school-related), and proceeded to park in a CLEARLY MARKED parking space reserved for the disabled. Is that about right?

    Where’s a corrupt LAPD officer when you need one?

  28. Sugar says:

    between Bynes, Lohan & a few others there is enough material to have a jeopardy category “ugh I just can’t with this girl”…
    I kinda figure even IF the paperwork would have made it into the system it would have no bearing on how the cops handled the situation or kept her from behind the wheel.

  29. mln89 says:

    this is despicable. if it were anyone else they would have immediately been thrown in jail, no questions asked.

  30. Whatever says:

    Man I used to get a kick out of her. Thought she was beyond funny and loved her show with Jenny Garth. What on earth. I know she wasn’t a top actress but this is not the way to kick start your career. She should have just got a talk show or something instead of becoming a train wreck. Oh well another one bites the dust.
