LOS ANGELES (AP) — Prosecutors have charged actress Amanda Bynes with hit-and-run in connection with two traffic crashes in recent months.

Los Angeles city attorney’s spokesman Frank Mateljan said the actress was charged Tuesday and is due for arraignment on Sept. 27.

Mr. Mateljan says Miss Bynes was charged for leaving the scene of two accidents, one on April 10 and another on Aug. 4, without providing proper information. The first incident occurred just days after Miss Bynes was arrested on suspicion of drunken driving after grazing a sheriff’s patrol car. She has pleaded not guilty in that case.

The 26-year-old actress is best known for her role in WB’s “What I Like About You” and the film “Easy A.”

Her publicist, Melissa Raubvogel, did not immediately return an email message seeking comment.
