    Amanda Bynes says she doesn't drink, but the L.A. City Attorney's Office begs to differ.

    The What I Like About You star has been charged with driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs stemming from her April 6 arrest after dinging a police cruiser with her BMW.

    And that's not all she's accused of.

    In the formal complaint against her, it is noted that Bynes also allegedly refused a peace officer's request to submit to and/or complete a chemical test to see how much—if any—substance was in her system.

    Arraignment has been scheduled for tomorrow at 8:30 a.m., but because the charge is a misdemeanor, Bynes only has to send a lawyer in her place.

    Since her April bust, the actress has perhaps coincidentally embarked on a series of driving snafus, including a painfully slow three-point turn witnessed by droves of West Hollywood revelers and the unwitting fender-bending of an SUV, which she says she never knew about until the other driver filed a report. Then TMZ reported that police were informed of but never pursued the allegation that she rear-ended another car on the freeway and drove off.

    The scrutiny ultimately prompted Bynes to address her recent troubles via Twitter and continued her denial today.

    "Hey ... I don't drink. Please fire the cop who arrested me. I also don't hit and run. The end."
