Amanda Bynes Asks For Barack Obama's Help Via Twitter
Amanda Bynes pleaded not guilty to the DUI charges
Amanda Bynes, 26, doesn't mess around when she's in trouble — she goes straight to President of the United States Barack Obama.
Bynes, the Easy A and Hairspray actress, has now officially been charged with driving under the influence (DUI) based on an incident that happened two months ago, in which Bynes was arrested after being involved in a traffic accident during the wee hours of April 6 — three days after her 26th birthday — reports the Los Angeles Times.
After Bynes' black BMW allegedly sideswiped an L.A. county sheriff's vehicle in West Hollywood, Bynes refused to submit to a Breathalyzer or blood alcohol test that would have revealed any impairment on her part due to alcohol. Later both Bynes and her father vociferously claimed that there was no way Bynes was intoxicated, as she does not drink.
On May 27, Bynes tweeted her position again: "I can't help but laugh at all of you writing fake stories about me. I was not in any hit and runs. I don't drink so the DUI is false."
When the court leveled the charges against her on June 5, she decided to take matters up with the President Obama, using the foolproof platform of Twitter. "Hey @BarackObama… I don't drink," Bynes tweeted. "Please fire the cop who arrested me. I also don't hit and run. The end."
Bynes pleaded not guilty to the charges. Her case will be seen by Beverly Hills Superior Court Judge Eldon Fox, who was involved in proceedings surrounding Lindsay Lohan's DUI case. So far there has been no response from President Obama.
