Don’t count on it. The U.S. Government has no jurisdiction over a West Hollywood police matter. Moreover, guy doesn’t even read his own account!
With Lady Gaga, you might get a reply, even as one of 25 million Monsters.
The misdemeanor charge of DUI against Bynes was filed Tuesday and relates to her April 6 arrest, when she was pulled over in West Hollywood.
The actress allegedly sideswiped a police car in her BMW when she tried to turn right, then did not stop. She refused a breathalyzer and drug test.
If convicted she faces a maximum penalty as a first-time offender of 48 hours in jail, three years probation and a nine-month alcohol program.
She could also lose her driver’s license for a year, which might not be the worst thing, as this is one of several other recent driving mishaps for Bynes.
About a week after her arrest, she backed over a curb while texting, and a week later was spotted holding up traffic while making a slow three-point U-turn.
