Amanda Bynes reportedly involved in another car incident
Actress Amanda Bynes was reportedly involved in another minor car incident on May 4.
The actress, who was arrested for a DUI in April, reportedly sideswiped a pick-up truck with her Range Rover in Los Angeles, according to People magazine. Bynes reportedly drove off, which caused the driver to call 911.
"At 4:25 p.m., we were notified of a possible hit-and-run," LAPD Sgt. Ben Zucker told the magazine on May 5. "The caller followed Miss Bynes for a short distance to a gas station."
An LAPD helicopter, which was in the area, flew overhead as six police cars arrived on the scene and talked to Bynes. However, Sgt. Zucker noted that the damage to the pick-up truck was minor and Bynes may not have realized she hit the vehicle.
Sgt. Zucker added, "Because of that, we decided not to charge her with hit and run, took a traffic report instead and sent her on her way. There were no arrests made and no one was injured."
The officer said Bynes cooperated with authorities and there was no indication that she was under the influence.
Bynes, a former Nickelodeon child star known for roles in "Hairspray" and "Easy A," was arrested on a charge of driving under the influence of alcohol in West Hollywood after allegedly hitting a Los Angeles County Sheriff deputy's marked car with her black BMW on April 6.
The actress rose to fame as a child star with the Nickelodeon series "All That," which aired between 1996 and 2002. She also portrayed Taffy on the animated series "Rugrats" and starred opposite Colin First and Kelly Preston in the teen romantic comedy "What a Girl Wants." Between 2002 and 2006, she appeared on the sitcom "What I Like About You" with Jennie Garth.
She then starred in the movie "She's The Man," playing a college girl who disguises herself as her twin brother so she can play on a men's soccer team. Channing Tatum portrayed her love interest. Bynes also played pig-tailed Penny Pingleton in the musical film "Hairspray."
In June 2010, she announced on Twitter she had quit acting. A month later, she said she had "unretired," just ahead of the release of her latest film, the comedy "Easy A." She played a conservative student named Marianne opposite main star Emma Stone.
