Bynes has been involved in two separate hit and run accidents, one involving an L.A. County Sheriff and has taken to twitter account asking the President for help. Her tweet to the President read, “Hey @BarackObama…I don’t drink. Please fire the cop who arrested me. I also don’t hit and run. The end.”

Authorities have re-opened Bynes’s first hit and run case in which a woman claims the actress backed into her Toyota before claiming there wasn’t any significant damage and leaving the scene without exchanging insurance or calling the police. The woman claims there were over $800 in damages to her Toyota although Bynes says that her and the woman came to a mutual understanding that their was no significant damage. On the night that Bynes hit the corner of a sheriffs cruiser, she refused to take a field sobriety test and was arrested for DUI. Amanda Bynes has taken to her Twitter account several times since being released stating, “I can’t help but laugh at all of you writing fake stories about me,” and “I was not in any hit and runs. I don’t drink so the DUI is false.

If convicted of hit and run involving DUI, Bynes could face up to 6 months in jail for each count.

Joe Simpson, who you may better know as the father of famous singers Jessica and Ashley Simpson, has been ordered by a judge to abstain from drinking alcohol. The order comes as a result of his August 4th arrest for DUI earlier this month. Joe Simpson was due in court on August 30th but his attorney Shawn Holley had the case continued into September. The order by the judge to not drink any alcohol may sound harsh to some considering Joe Simpson has never had any prior arrests for DUI.

Joe Simpson was arrested earlier this month and charged with 2 misdemeanor counts of DUI and had a Blood Alcohol Content(BAC) level of .12, well beyond the legal limit of .08%. If he is convicted, he could face up to a year in jail, probation, suspension of his driver’s license in addition to large fines.
