Burbank's Bob Hope Airport spokesman Victor Gill says airport police cited the actress and impounded her car Sunday. TMZ has the photos here.
He said in a statement that "police did cite Amanda Bynes for driving a vehicle with a suspended driver's license this morning."
Bynes' driving privileges had been suspended after she was charged with hit-and-run in connection with two traffic crashes.
Los Angeles prosecutors accused Bynes of leaving the scene of two accidents, one on April 10 and another on Aug. 4, without providing proper information. The first incident occurred just days after Bynes was arrested on suspicion of drunken driving. She has pleaded not guilty in that case.
Bynes starred in WB's "What I Like About You" and appeared on the big screen in "Easy A." She was also a regular cast member of Nickelodeon's "Figure It Out" and "All That."
Her recent driving situation has prompted fellow celebrity Lindsay Lohan to chime in, referencing her own troubles with the law:

Lohan, also 26, served 14 days behind bars in 2010 after violating probation in her 2007 DUI case. Last year, she did a five-hour jail stint after violating her probation.
