Amanda Bynes got herself into a lot of trouble as she was caught driving around on a suspended license and smoking pot
Amanda Bynes was spotted smoking what looked like a marijuana pipe disguised as a cigarette lighter Tuesday - and then getting behind the wheel of her BMW and driving erratically throughout the streets of Los Angeles on a suspended license.
TMZ reports that Bynes, 26, first sat in the parking lot of a Baja Fresh restaurant in the San Fernando Valley, allegedly taking hits from the drug pipe device and chewing down on tacos.

Earlier this month, Bynes was charged with two hit-and-run accidents and will return to court on September 27 and she faces up to a year in prison.
In August, Bynes was accused of a hit-and-run in the San Fernando Valley; a woman claimed that she was rear-ended by Bynes who drove off without giving the woman her insurance information. The woman filed a police report after Bynes said the damage didn't look that bad and drove off.
In April of this year, Bynes was also arrested for an alleged DUI after she hit a police car in West Hollywood. Bynes plead not guilty.
"She was not drunk," the actress' dad Rick Bynes told People magazine back in April. "I was told that she blew a zero on the Breathalyzer. She didn't have a single drink that night. My daughter doesn't drink."
Bynes similarly took to Twitter in a strange appeal to President Obama to help her with the situation.
"Hey @BarackObama... I don't drink," she tweeted. "Please fire the cop who arrested me. I also don't hit and run. The end."
If convicted of the two cases of hit-and-run, Bynes could face six months in jail for each charge. She is due in court Sept. 27.
