(CBS/AP) LOS ANGELES- Prosecutors have charged actress Amanda Bynes with hit-and-run in connection with two traffic crashes in recent months, after a previous roadside run-in with the law.

Los Angeles City attorney's spokesman Frank Mateljan says the 26-year-old Bynes was charged Tuesday for 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 after grazing a sheriff's patrol car. She has pleaded not guilty in that case.

Bynes is best known for her role in the WB's "What I Like About You" and the film "Easy A." Her publicist, Melissa Raubvogel, did not immediately return an email message seeking comment.

Bynes is due to be arraigned on Sept. 27.
