Amanda Bynes Not Allowed On Private Jet From New Jersey To L.A.
All Amanda Bynes wanted to do last weekend was get from Jersey to L.A. -- a reasonable and understandable request.
But according to TMZ, when the singer/actress/hot mess went to board a private jet at Teterboro Airport, it was soon revealed that her driver's license had been suspended, and the pilot didn't want to let her on the plane.
In response, she suggested that he google her to find out who she is (totally the same thing as a government issued ID), and then began yelling, "I'm Amanda Bynes!"
Bynes has had her share of difficulties -- including several DUIs -- but as far as we know this is the first time her problems have affected her air travel plans.
Presumably, she will be barred form a train next.
