Last week we learned the happy news that the very accident prone Amanda Bynes had her driver’s license suspended by the California Department of Motor Vehicles. At the time, I felt that the DMV was worthy of our respect and admiration. Today we learn that Amanda was pulled over by police in SoCal last night while she was, apparently, driving with a suspended license. For some reason, the officer on the scene did NOT arrest Amanda for her crime … he only spoke with her and sent her on her way. Either the police officer didn’t run her license to learn that she had a suspended license or he didn’t care. In either case, it could be argued, he let a dangerous repeat offender back on the streets to potentially terrorize again. Insane!
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.
It seems very plainly obvious that Amanda Bynes don’t give a f*ck about her inability to drive safely OR legally. And to be honest, as long as the police continue to coddle her, then why should she give a damn? Any other person who was pulled over for driving without a license — if, in fact, Amanda‘s license is still suspended — would be arrested on the spot. In this case, it looks like Amanda got a stern talking to (tho, we can’t even be certain that it was a “stern” anything) and was sent on her way … to drive home illegally again without a valid driver’s license. Until she is forced to pay for her continued crimes, I have no doubt that she will continue to thumb her nose at the law.
