Amanda Bynes Won’t Be Prosecuted for DUI but Could Face Probation Violation.

“After much deliberation and review,” the Los Angeles city attorney has decided not to pursue the DUI charge, reports the New York Daily News – but he has referred the case to the L.A. Bynes, 28, was taken into custody at 3 a.m. on the morning of Sept. 28 after allegedly running a red light and stopping in the middle of an intersection outside Los Angeles. A DA source said Thursday that a prosecutor was reviewing the evidence but no decision has been made on whether the office would seek a probation violation hearing. It was last February that Bynes scored a no-jail plea deal in her 2012 southern California DUI case, capping a prior string of run-ins with the law that stretched back more than two years and included a 2013 arrest for tossing a bong out the window of her Manhattan high-rise apartment.

The former child star, 28, pleaded no contest to a lesser charge of alcohol-related reckless driving in that first case and received three years of probation along with three months of alcohol education classes, her lawyer said. No further action [in our office] is scheduled on this matter.” Her arrest in September came as a bit of a curveball as she had seemed to have gotten her life back on track in the months preceding the incident. The “Easy A” actress is back under a court-supervised conservatorship following her September DUI arrest, a caught-on-tape twerkfest inside an Upper East Side clothing store and an involuntary psychiatric hold at a Pasadena hospital, also in October. She obtained her driving license back in April 2014 after a year and a half suspension following her failure to show up for a number of court dates to address traffic tickets. As well as her driving issues, Amanda has also shown erratic behaviour towards her family and loved ones, and also claimed to be homeless towards the end of last year.

However it was revealed in December that her parents had found a way to keep track of their daughter’s movements, as they struggle to communicate via other channels. “Amanda’s mom, Lynn, set up the Uber car service on her daughter’s cell phone,” a source told Radar. “Uber can take Amanda anywhere she needs to go and it’s paid for out of Amanda’s estate, since her mom has conservatorship.”
