Just in the past month, Amanda Bynes has crashed into a police car which led to a DUI and driven away from a bar while texting and climbing up on a curb. Now People says she side-swiped a pick-up truck with her black Range Rover and then just drove away.
Thankfully for her she’s rich and white so the LAPD looked the other way.
An LAPD police helicopter that was already in the vicinity flew overhead as a total of six police cars arrived on the scene and made contact with Bynes.
(The LAPD said:) “It turned out the damage to the pick-up truck was so minor that it was very plausible she had no idea that she hit anyone. Because of that, we decided not to charge her with hit and run, took a traffic report instead and sent her on her way.”
Awesome. In other words, “She only committed hit and run because she’s a really shitty driver and has no spacial awareness. If you’re so oblivious that you don’t even know you hit someone, then that’s fine.” I’m not 100 percent certain I agree with that reasoning.
