Amanda Bynes' court troubles are back in the headlines again. In the latest development, she has pleaded not guilty to two counts of driving on a suspended license.

Court records show Bynes' attorney Robert J. Wilson entered the pleas Monday in Burbank, Calif., on behalf of the actress.

Bynes' car was impounded at the Bob Hope Airport in September and she was charged with the misdemeanor counts days later.

The incident came after Bynes, 26, was charged in separate driving under the influence and hit-and-run cases. She has pleaded not guilty in those cases, but her license was suspended and a judge ordered her to stop driving until it's re-instated.

The actress rose to fame starring in Nickelodeon's "All That" and her own variety show. She also starred in several films, including 2010's "Easy A."

Bynes recently said she has retired from acting and hopes to start her own fashion line.
