Amanda Bynes seen driving on a suspended license, getting stoned in her car


Another day, another story about Amanda Bynes not getting in trouble while endangering countless lives. TMZ has photos from a photographer who followed Amanda all day as she drove around on a suspended license. The last time we saw Amanda driving (also with a suspended license), she was being pulled over by cops for driving without her headlights on at night. TMZ had photos of that too, and Amanda got off with a warning and obviously did NOT consider it a wakeup call. A DUI, several hit and run incidents and a suspended license weren’t a wakeup call for her, so why would she behave any differently after getting pulled over and let off? So Amanda was driving illegally and what did she do – she got some takeout, got high, went to a spa, went to Home Depot, then got high again. Maybe she’s telling the truth that she hasn’t been drinking and driving, she’s been toking and driving. Here’s the story. TMZ also has a whole series of photos documenting Amanda’s day:

Amanda Bynes was driving aimlessly for hours Tuesday … while smoking out of what appears to be a marijuana pipe and tooling around L.A. on a suspended license.

The photos — obtained by TMZ — show Bynes taking multiple hits out of a pipe that is designed to look like a cigarette lighter in your car. In one shot, you see what appears to be remnants of marijuana in a cup holder. Some of the nugs appear burnt — as if they had already been smoked.

The car is a mess. Trash is strewn everywhere. There are stains on the seat, empty bottles, dog hair and various other items.

Amanda started her journey at Baja Fresh in the San Fernando Valley, where she smoked from the pipe in the restaurant parking lot and ate tacos. She then went to a spa, where she spent 3 hours. We’re told Amanda then drove without purpose for several hours, sometimes cutting off other drivers and violating various traffic laws. Amanda ended up at Home Depot, where she again took a hit from the pipe in the parking lot.

TMZ has confirmed … Amanda is driving illegally, because the DMV suspended her license on August 25. As for why her license was yanked, we believe it’s because she refused to take a sobriety test when she was busted for DUI in April. In California, such refusal results in automatic license suspension.

TMZ broke the story … Amanda has been charged with 2 hit-and-runs and various drivers have complained that she has either hit them as well or created peril.

[From TMZ]

Fingers crossed that the cops pull her over and make her face immediate consequences before she hurts someone. I’m also hoping that the judge in Amanda’s DUI case sees these photos. She’s surely been driving stoned for months now considering all the accidents she’s been getting into. What is it going to take for her to stop? I don’t even want to know the answer to that.

Amanda is shown at the MTV Movie Awards on 5-6-11 and outside the Chateau Marmont on 4-12-12. Credit: WENN and Pacific Coast News

    Why didn’t TMZ call police? Are picts that important to put people’s lives in danger??? Kinda pisses me off actually. :-( In case it was said in blog, going back to read it now. ;-)

  2. tru tru says:

    I saw those pics this morning, she is vying for Crack Mama Lindsay’s spot.

    she’s still driving, wow!

    • Canda says:

      What an amateur. When I was in my stoner phase, smoking up ten times a day and driving around aimlessly, at least I smoked up WHILE driving and not sitting in a parking lot, and I’m not even famous! No one wanted to take my picture, and I still didn’t pull that crap. She must have wanted to be seen. Plus, I never got so much as a parking ticket or lost my license, so there’s that.

      • EmmaStoneWannabe says:

        Are you still smoking it? Your post is redic.

      • k says:

        What a model citizen you are.

      • Shitler says:

        Congratulations on not having your picture taken or your license suspended
        eyeroll*

      • Riana says:

        LMAO. This post is hilarious, wow…former stoner casting moral judgement because you were smart enough TO drive and put others in danger. Nice.

      • deehunny says:

        Please ladies, get off your high horse. She was being honest about her experience. I’m sure none of the ladies of Celebitchy have ever smoked marijuana! Gasp! *eyeroll*

      • Cornchips says:

        Deehunny, she wasn’t being honest about her experience, she was being egotistical about it. She was bragging that she is so much better than Amanda Byrnes cos she didn’t get caught. What a winner.

      • Poopsicle says:

        You guys are stupid. She is smart for not getting caught. LOL. Some people drive better when high. Maybe you shouldn’t cast YOUR moral judgement.

      • Canda says:

        Actually, I AM a model citizen. Not everyone can handle toking and driving, and obviously Amanda is one of them… I’m not. It forced me to pay attention to the task at hand and watch every little thing I did. It’s NOT like drinking and driving, no matter what anyone says. It just isn’t.
        and yes, Amanda is an idiot for sitting still in a parking lot and smoking up in full view of strangers. My point was that I didn’t even do that, and I’m not a “celebrity” whom anyone cared enough about to stalk and photograph me. She’s gotta cover her shit up a lot better.

  3. RocketMerry says:

    What the frak is this girl doin’?!

    Seriously, did she just happen to have a look at the “wonderful” and “amazing” career of Lindsay Lohan and all of a sudden decide that was totally the route to go?

    Is she trying to mimik the CrackRoach? ‘Cause you know it can’t be done. Terrible fail, A.

    • MeGravy says:

      …well obviously this wacko s trying to get SOMEONES attention, apparently hasn’t worked yet, so she’ll shine on like the lil diamond that she is until either #1 she gets the attention she is craving, or #2 she gets hurt. Where are her friends/loved ones/boyfriend? WTH? This girl is going to do something really bad, really quick if someone doesn’t help her. Where is her damn agent at least?

  4. spinner says:

    Geez…this girl is just starved for attention, isn’t she??

  5. taxi says:

    Where’s a cop when we need him? Get her off the road so we never have to read about her again. She’s boring & gone from C list to D list.

    • OriginalTiffany says:

      I do believe she is now in the whore list.

      Like Blohan-these girls are working for a living, God knows she isn’t acting.

  6. V4Real says:

    What happen to this girl, she used to be one of the young starletts who you hardly ever heard anything negative about, now she’s channeling her inner Miley Cyrus.

    • lizbet says:

      Miley Cyrus, really? I am no fan of hers, but smoking salvia, making jokes about weed and penis cakes, and getting crazy haircuts is hardly a pattern of reckless and illegal behavior. Amanda is venturing into Cracken territory with this.

      • V4Real says:

        You’re right that is crack like behavior, but I was referring to her image. We never used to hear anything negative about Amanda when she was around Miley’s age but we’ve heard a lot of negative things about young Miley.

      • normades says:

        I guess you haven’t read those Room 23 rumors. Google it and try to find the Lipstick Alley thread on it. It’s hardcore.

    • V4Real says:

      @ Normades

      LOL! Yes I did hear about those rumors but still that’s fairly recent and she’s been a young starlett for years and note my first comment,I said hardly heard anything negative, not never.

    • EmmaStoneWannabe says:

      @ normades/V4Real – what are the miley rumors for room 23? Must know..couldnt easily find through Google search

      • V4Real says:

        It’s not Miley but Amanda Bynes. Earlier this year rumors circulated that a website called Room 23 is a call girl site where B-list celebrities such as Bynes have worked. Other names included Hayden P. and Stacy Dash. The head of it all was a woman name Diana Jenkins. Anyone with more info please feel free to correct me if I’m mistaken. But like I said it was just rumors, nothing has been proven so don’t go accussing me of calling Amanda a prostitute. LOL!

      • EmmaStoneWannabe says:

        Haha wow that is absolutely insane..it kind of makes you wonder. Esp when an actress (like AB) goes so long without credited film work, how they sustain their lifestyle. VERY interesting. Dont know how I missed that nugget of gold! Thanks!!

      • normades says:

        Lohan’s in there too!

        Take everything in this thread with a grain of salt. I believe 25% of this. The other stuff is completely redic. Very disturbing read:

    IDK how much cops actually care about someone driving on a suspended license. I once got into an accident with a guy who was driving on a suspended license. At the scene, the guy got a ticket for that and the cop made him call his wife to take him home (she was giving me one of those “if looks could kill” looks the whole time). But then a day later, my insurance agent told me that the other guy had rented a car to drive while his car was getting fixed! His wife had actually rented it in her name, and then they walked out of the office and he got in it and drove it. I raised all sorts of hell about that and told the insurance agency that they should refuse to pay for the rental because the guy DIDN’T HAVE A VALID LICENSE. But they just shrugged it off and were like, “He needs to get to work.” I was like, “Give him cab fare. Buy him bus tokens. HIS LICENSE IS SUSPENDED.” They didn’t care. So even though it seems like a big deal, and it obvs should be, maybe it’s one of those laws that people look the other way on.

    • Kelly says:

      This may not be the case in this instance, since it sounds like he got a ticket for the suspended license, but a lot of the time “suspended” licenses do include provisions that allow driving to and from work. Again, I have no idea in your case, but it’s not uncommon for someone on a “suspended” license to still be allowed to drive to/from work.

      • CG says:

        Oh really? I didn’t know that. I assumed since he got a ticket for it that he wasn’t allowed to drive at all, even for work, but maybe not. If that was the case, I wish it would have been explained to me! I was seriously pissed that my insurance had to pay for a rental for someone who wasn’t allowed to drive! :)

    • the original bellaluna says:

      CG – Sounds like my experience with an unlicensed, uninsured, undocumented man. He decided to ignore a stop sign and T-bone my ass, all in front of a cop who was sitting at the gas station across the street.

      A truckload of Marines saw the whole thing, and two of them took off after the driver (who decided to add “leaving the scene of an accident” and “hit and run” to his repertoire) while the rest came to help me. The cop just sat there.

      When I’d finally gotten home and into bed (HOURS later), the SD called to tell me that they’d found the guy, and that he was unlicensed, uninsured, and undocumented, and it wasn’t even his car.

      They had the audacity to ask ME what I wanted THEM to do with him!! I said “Deport him! Charge him! Do SOMETHING!” And do you know what they said? “We don’t have any grounds.”

      I hung up on them. My insurance company was more helpful than the SD, and after investigating for over a year, they told me to let it go.

      Gotta love Southern California! :(

  8. andy says:

    what is going on with that girl? and why isn’t anybody helping her??

    • Reece says:

      Sadly, you can’t help somebody who doesn’t want help.

    • Chipmunk says:

      You can’t drive on a suspended license unless you get a judge to give you the ok. It takes about 60 days, and you’re only allowed to drive to and from work, and they take into consideration how long it takes you to get to work and get home. I cannot believe that they just blew you off like that for reporting him. That’s just crazy.

    • Liza Jane says:

      Seemingly her father was in total denial after the first 2 incidences and said to reporters that his daughter” does not drink” none of hat helps her! Parents really do ‘enable’ these kids by not facing up to their behavior.is it a ploy to convince studios that the girl is still employable? Who knows but seemingly her career is shot and hopefully her life will not be lost or others killed because of her actions! What a f****d up world we live in!

  9. Winnie says:

    Looked at a few of the TMZ pics and I suddenly was glad no one takes pics of me in my car all day. Especially when I’m eating. :)
    And my car’s a mess too. But I’m not toking up, so I’ve got that going for me.

    • KellyinSeattle says:

      I’m with you, Winnie. I call my car, The Beast. She’s dressing like a hooker – she should be cited for another suspention for her shoes, and her face looks bloated from drinking. She is really trying to promote a sexy image, while actually portraying a sickening image.

  10. gg says:

    More saggy tits and horse hooves. huzzah.

  11. MommaK18 says:

    I use to like Amanda B. She was funny and cute. Now she’s trying for LL’s spot?
    I dont get it?

    Something has got to be off….
    Not only does she act a mess but she looks awful.
    Do these girls think they’re 16 and dumb? (Not that is an excuse but they act clueless…)
    I’m 25, nearly 26…and my young and dumb days have been over for awhile now.

    • NerdMomma says:

      I think it’s that they have absolutely nothing to do all day long! The saying “idle hands are the devil’s workshop” comes to mind looking at those pics…I mean with nowhere to be and having no responsibilities, she’s going to drive around aimlessly and get high. Girl needs a real job, not an acting job but something with structure and accountability.

  12. Dee Cee says:

    Sounds like the average Hollywood critter.. She got caught.. now she can get help.. oh hahaha

  13. Ming says:

    Loser girl rule #1: Stay skinny, the rest is of no importance.

  14. LeslieM says:

    I agree that TMZ should have called the police. They could have arrested her at Home Depot. Driving around on pot is crazy. This girl is going to kill somebody. Hopefully she’ll be arrested soon and punished.

  15. SleepyJane says:

    How does she eat all those tacos and still stay thin?

    Oh, and the PSA: Don’t forget kids…drugs+drive=bad.

  16. logan says:

    Does anyone in Hollywood actually have a film career anymore? Or do they just act like asses and hope for a reality show? Sad when a show called “Honey Boo Boo” is equal to any thing the “new Hollywood dolls” are doing.

  17. gee says:

    I think this whole thing is a very dangerous and stupid cry for help and attention.

  18. The Original Mia says:

    Girl is straight up pothead. She’s going to kill somebody.

  19. Lacie says:

    How to make small eyes look smaller…see Amanda Bynes. That is all.

  20. Ella says:

    Why is she walking around in her underwear at night?

  21. QQ says:

    Violence is never the answer but someone needs to punch that moonfaced Asshole in the face at least, since we know she’ll face 0% consequences and all

  22. Riana says:

    When it comes to celebrities I really don’t think there is any justice (unless you are a minority, extra points if you’re male too!).

    I mean that sincerely though, whenever I see ‘blank celeb got into trouble’ I don’t really expect any follow up of them being put through the ringer like normal people would.

    At this point this chick will either get tired of driving, kill herself, or kill someone else. Sucks.

  23. Dani says:

    For a pothead, she’s got some killer legs. But what’s with the bandaids???

  24. Kayla says:

    Lol at people who are so afraid of a pothead driving. Don’t you know that smoking and driving go hand in hand?

  25. Dani says:

    Her irrationality is driven by her addiction. Get the play on words there. But seriously it is true. Apparently there is nobody in her life who can get through to her. Sense of entitlement plus drugs. Bad combo.

  26. Chloeeee says:

    Girls like this give people who like to use pot recreationally a bad name. I wonder how many pills she’s on too. Or maybe her apathy is that intoxicating. I have never been to stoned to run into anything driving or not.

  27. skuddles says:

    She’s clearly begging to be busted – won’t someone please oblige her?

  28. Stacia says:

    Would it take for her to mow some pedestrian down on a sidewalk or hit someone head on before this chic is arrested? She’s had WAAAY toooo many chances to kill or maim someone. Just another Hollywood F*** Up that is still chasing the limelight long after her career is no more.

    BTW…I can see the band-aids in her heels.

  29. LucyOriginal says:

    Harvey Levin from tmz has been saying from the beginning he thought something was up with her. It was more than alcohol that her behavior was erratic, etc.

    I guess they just wanted to get some proof. Maybe she has more issues than we think she has.

    I remembered that I though it was silly when she announced that she was retiring from Hollywood. Did she think people would miss her? Everyday there are bunch of young (and talented) people trying to make it in Hollywood.

  30. Erin says:

    omg…i’m sorry but perhaps she is a seasoned smoker, in which case it probably doesn’t make her a terrible driver, she already IS a terrible driver. this is a far, far less dangerous thing to do than to drive after drinking. i have a medical card in my state and smoke every day and have for many years, i have never gotten into an accident or even gotten a ticket while high. calm down, she’s not automatically a crackhead because she tokes and drives and eats tacos and gets massages. honestly, that doesn’t sound like such an awful life to me, but maybe i’m a huge loser too.

  31. Sunnyinseattle says:

    So, now the police are talking to TMZ, saying how they are scared she is going to kill someone, that their families are in the road too, (duh) but still no one is questioning why TMZ DIDN’T CALL THE POLICE???!! They chose to follow her around and take pictures to sell! Oh, but Harvey “knew” something more was going on with her?! Well, thanks TMZ and Harvey Levin for showing the picts and NOT for calling police to stop her! Why isn’t anyone else bringing this up? I will never look at that site again! As far as the police worried about their families, as they should be, pull your thumbs out and next time she is stopped for driving without a license,DON’T give her a warning. It is not rocket science! Sorry to go off, but let’s not let her get as far gone as Lohan!!!! :-( :-(:-(

    • LucyOriginal says:

      Honestly, if tmz had said something to the cops without proof they would not care. As the police did not care, when she was pulled over driving while her license was suspended. Nothing happened to her that day.

  32. Sunnyinseattle says:

    Proof? They had pictures! Bullsh!t. All they had to do as any citizen can and has done, is call 911 and say they see this car drivinh under the influence and give them the plate. As far as them calling before, they didn’t, they just (TMZ) to be in the right place at the right time! That is a cop out. People call on suspected drivers all the time, and they are pulled over. In fact, it has happened to a few other celebs. Don’t get me wrong, the cops should have arrested her last time, but they aure could of used this info this time! ;-( :-(

  33. Shoe_lover says:

    is she really a cracked out mess or is this all fake for attention?

  34. Aries_Mira says:

    Can some please get her off the road before she kills someone!?!?

    I guess this just proves (again) that if you’re a celebrity you can get away with anything.

    Pathetic.

  35. Ginger says:

    This is serious stuff…I’m with the other posters…instead of taking photos call the freaking police! We just had the worst accident ever seen in Las Vegas today because of a drunk driver. It was really tragic and the whole community is upset and shaken over it. (I will spare you the details because it was really horrific) Amanda is headed for a vehicular manslaughter charge next if she’s driving under the influence and already has hit and runs. Someone get this idiot off the road!

  36. the original bellaluna says:

    Bynes and Blohan will have to end up killing or maiming someone before they see any consequences for their idiotic actions.

    I defy anyone to prove otherwise.

    • Sugar says:

      it’s going to be a “rap sheet” contest between these two if AB continues down the LILO highway. if we thought it was safe to drive w/Lohan in NYC look again-Amanda is behind the wheel & let’s hope the marines are around when the cracken & Amanda are both loose. it makes me so angry on a personal level to even think that it could be the end of an innocent life to stop one or both:(

  37. Shannon says:

    “Some of the nugs appear burnt — as if they had already been smoked.” This attempt at using stoner lingo made me giggle. Those are not nugs. Nugs are big pieces of unsmoked weed, not tiny little bits left in the crevices of a cup holder. Nice try TMZ.
