Amanda Bynes Got Charged with That DUI

As if there was ever any real doubt, Amanda Bynes was officially charged with a DUI yesterday in court. However, in a shocking turn of events, the judge didn’t say “seriously, hand me your keys right this second, then we’ll talk” as soon as Amanda entered the courtroom.

From TMZ:

Amanda Bynes has officially been charged with DUI after her arrest back in April — when she sideswiped a cop car and allegedly attempted to flee the scene.

Bynes has been charged with one count of misdemeanor DUI — and the D.A. has sought a sentencing enhancement because the actress refused to take either a breathalyzer or a blood test.

Bynes has not been charged with hit-and-run.

If convicted — with the sentencing enhancement — we’re told Bynes faces a minimum of 48 hours in jail … and a maximum of 6 months.

But because of jail overcrowding, it’s unlikely Bynes will ever serve longer than a few hours.

They also updated with this little gem an hour later:

And now this … Amanda just tweeted, “Hey @BarackObama… I don’t drink. Please fire the cop who arrested me. I also don’t hit and run. The end.”

You know, I might have really believed Amanda when she said that she’s innocent if a few days after the DUI, she didn’t drive up on a curb while texting. Or if a month before her arrest, she hadn’t driven away from a cop while he was writing her a ticket. Or if she hadn’t done all the countless other things she’s done the last couple of months. But these days, I’ll believe absolutely any story about Amanda Bynes doing something wacky or dangerous in a car. And that’s why it’s sad that she’ll never spend any time in jail. She’s not going to learn this time around, is she?
