Amanda Bynes skips out on court hearing

Los Angeles - Amanda Bynes skipped her hearing with the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) on Monday, reports E! News.

The 26-year-old star was formally charged last week with two counts of driving with a suspended licence after two incidents at Burbank Airport in California.

While her attorney defended her, Amanda chose to remain in New York where she is launching a fashion range after quitting acting.

Not attending other court appearance

A source told E! News: "She has moved to New York indefinitely to start her fashion line."

The troubled former starlet has another hearing scheduled for Thursday on the account of two hit-and-run charges. However, insiders say she has no plans to return for that court appearance either.

Amanda has faced a string of recent troubles including having her car impounded and facing charges of driving under the influence.

'Risk of public safety'

However, there was some good news for Amanda after a Beverly Hills judge ruled earlier last week that she won't have to post the $50 000 bail for her driving under the influence case.

The district attorney argued that Amanda, who failed to show up to court, should be ordered to put up $50 000 bail pending her trial on 29 October, saying the bail was needed "for risk of public safety".

Judge Elden Fox chose not to impose the request because the incidents happened prior to her licence being suspended, explaining: "Technically, Ms Bynes is not in violation of order not to drive without a valid driver's licence." publishes all comments posted on articles provided that they adhere to our Comments Policy.
