(CBS News) Amanda Bynes isn't going to get a DUI charge, a suspended license, and a series of run-ins with the law get in her way.

The 26-year-old actress says she's doing "amazing."

She told People on Wednesday, "I am not talking about being arrested for DUI because I don't drink, and I don't drink and drive. It is all false."

Instead, Bynes says she's focusing on a new venture. "I am retired as an actor," she said. "I am moving to New York to launch my career. I am going to do a fashion line," she told the site.

A judge has ordered Bynes not to drive. E! News reports that Bynes has a court date set for Oct. 29 for her misdemeanor DUI and hit-and-run charges.

Prosecutors have charged her with leaving the scene of two accidents -- one on April 10 and another on Aug. 4. That's in addition to a DUI charge this year.

Early Sunday morning, Bynes was pulled over for driving with a suspended license; her car was impounded.
