Washington: Amanda Bynes has been charged with two counts of hit-and-run after allegedly smashing into some car and fleeing the scene twice.

If convicted on both counts, she faces up to a year in jail.

The 26-year-old pleaded not guilty to driving under the influence (DUI) after colliding with a police car in West Hollywood in April.

The case was eventually thrown out as there were no independent witnesses to the incident. But prosecutors in Los Angeles re-opened the case after she was accused of another smash and dash last month, TMZ reported.

She`s due in court September 27th.
