Prosecutors have decided to charge Amanda Bynes with not one but two hit-and-runs, after they took a look at one incident in April and another one last month.Bynes is accused of crashing into cars and fleeing the scene twice. She could face up to a year in jail for those charges, according to TMZ (of course, that's before we start thinking about overcrowding and the strength of her defense team).

We're having a little trouble keeping all of the allegations of terrible driving straight at this point. Bynes has bolted during a routine traffic stop, she sideswiped a police car and incurred a subsequent DUI.

She's due in court September 27. Bynes had no comment.
