Amanda Bynes, driving, texting, iPhone, driving while texting
A Series of Unfortunate Events
Amanda's run-in with law enforcement in early April failed to make her change her ways. On April 12, 2012, she was photographed backing over a curb while using her iPhone behind the wheel -- which is illegal while driving in California. Then on May 4, 2012, Amanda allegedly fled after sideswiping a pickup truck. The other driver called 911 and followed Amanda until she stopped at a gas station, where they were met by a police helicopter and six cop cars. The LAPD determined that the damage to the pickup truck was so minor that it was plausible Amanda had no idea she hit someone. Fortunately for the actress, she was not charged with hit-and-run this time, but her troubles were still far from over.
