Los Angeles - LA prosecutors have charged actress Amanda Bynes with driving under the influence.

The latest incident took place roughly two months after authorities said she grazed a sheriff's patrol car in an early morning accident.

The 26-year-old was set to appear before the court on Wednesday in Beverly Hills but doesn't have to attend the hearing. Instead, she can have a lawyer enter a plea.

Bynes was arrested on 6 April after authorities say she scraped a patrol car making a turn.

The misdemeanour complaint filed on Tuesday alleges she refused to take a test at the time that could've determined whether she was drunk or under the influence of drugs. Because of her refusal, authorities may suspend her driver's licence for a year.

Bynes appeared in the Nickelodeon series What I Like About You and the film Easy A.
