Back in April, Bynes allegedly rear-ended a vehicle on L.A.'s 101 Freeway and promptly drove away; the L.A. City Attorney's office reopened the investigation into that case last month after another Los Angeles driver filed a police report, claiming Bynes had rear-ended her vehicle and driven away from that accident scene.

The star allegedly told the driver she rear-ended in August that the damage to her car didn't look all that serious, and left before they were able to exchange information.
