Amanda Bynes Caught Smoking Weed and Driving on Suspended License; Ordered by Judge Not to Drive Anymore
Amanda Bynes — who has been making tons of headlines lately for her “Fuck it, #YOLO” driving skills — was photographed getting high and driving “aimlessly for hours” around the streets of Los Angeles Tuesday (Sep 11).
The photos, which were obtained by TMZ, show the former child star taking multiple hits out of what is known as a stealth marijuana pipe, which is basically a smoking pipe that is designed to look like something that is not a smoking pipe. Amanda’s was designed to look like a cigarette lighter.
In some of the pictures, you can clearly see weed residue all over the car, which is a complete mess (trash and dog hair are everywhere, stains are on the seats, etc).
TMZ offered this highly detailed description of Amanda’s hotbox joyride around Hollywood:
Amanda started her journey at Baja Fresh in the San Fernando Valley, where she smoked from the pipe in the restaurant parking lot and ate tacos. She then went to a spa, where she spent 3 hours.
We’re told Amanda then drove without purpose for several hours, sometimes cutting off other drivers and violating various traffic laws. Amanda ended up at Home Depot, where she again took a hit from the pipe in the parking lot.
While it’s not a crime for people to drive “without purpose for several hours,” it is for someone like Amanda Bynes, who recently had her license suspended, and is currently facing multiple charges for not just one, but two, hit-and-run accidents, as well as a DUI.
Additionally, other drivers have claimed that she’s either hit them, or subjected them to potential peril.
According to TMZ, the DMV suspended Amanda’s license last month because she refused a sobriety test when she was pulled over for DUI back in April. In the state of California, refusing sobriety/breathalyzer tests usually results in automatic license suspension.
At a court hearing Wednesday (Sep 13), which Bynes did not attend, L.A. Superior Court Judge Marsha Revel — who, coincidentally, has presided over some of Lindsay Lohan‘s legal troubles — made it clear that the actress is to NOT get behind the wheel of anything that moves and requires a key to start-up.
Bynes’ next hearing is set for September 21st, and Judge Revel said that if she fails to appear, a warrant will be issued for her arrest.
A source close to the situation told RadarOnline.com, “Amanda has been ordered by the judge to be in court to explain her actions and if she doesn’t show up a warrant for her arrest will immediately be issued. Judge Revel is not happy about the way Amanda has been conducting herself and does not want another Lindsay Lohan fiasco on her hands.”
