Amanda Bynes Probation: Actress Gets Three Years For Driving Charges

Amid reports of baffling behavior and even more baffling tweets, Amanda Bynes has finally put her driving drama behind her. The 27-year-old former Nickelodeon star pled no contest to charges of driving on a suspended license Thursday, according to TMZ, and has been placed on three years probation. Bynes, who did not appear in Los Angeles court, was charged with a $300 fine in the plea bargain deal.

The troubled actress moved from Los Angeles to New York last fall after a string of vehicular incidents sparked concern about Bynes' behavior. In addition to driving with a suspended license, Bynes was also arrested and charged with a DUI and accused of a hit-and-run at least twice.

In September, Bynes denied trouble with the law, telling People magazine in a statement: "I am doing amazing … I am retired as an actor. I am moving to New York to launch my career. I am going to do a fashion line. I am not talking about being arrested for DUI because I don't drink, and I don't drink and drive. It is all false."
