Amanda Bynes got pulled over for blabbing on her phone while driving in Los Angeles yesterday.But instead of waiting around to get her ticket, Bynes decided to peel out of there, according to TMZ.

The cop let her go since he already had her information and figured she wasn't otherwise a public threat (unlike our favorite young, female Hollywood scofflaw).

Bynes did drop by a police station later to pick up her ticket but she's not off the hook just yet. She could face charges for bolting during a traffic stop.

No word from Bynes' camp on what was so important that she couldn't wait another minute for her ticket.
