Prosecutors have charged Amanda Bynes with hit-and-run in connection with two traffic crashes in recent months.

Los Angeles City attorney’s spokesperson Frank Mateljan says the actress was charged Tuesday and is due for arraignment on September 27.

Mateljan says Bynes was charged for leaving the scene of two accidents, one on April 10 and another on August 4, without providing proper information. The first incident occurred just days after 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 is best known for her role in the WB’s What I Like About You and the film Easy A.

Her publicist Melissa Raubvogel did not immediately return an e-mail message seeking comment.
