Amanda Bynes Mugshot

West Hollywood Sheriff's Dept.

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."
