Apparently begging the president to fire the cop you allegedly hit with your car doesn't work. Even if you're kind of famous.
Los Angeles prosecutors have charged actress Amanda Bynes with driving under the influence, despite the actress' plea to President Obama to can the trooper she allegedly sideswiped.
@BarackObama... I don't drink. Please fire the cop who arrested me. I also don't hit and run. The end," Bynes tweeted Tuesday.
The 26-year-old pleased not guilty on Wednesday through her lawyer. She did not attend the hearing.
The arraignment comes roughly two months after authorities say she grazed a sheriff's patrol car in an early morning accident.
Bynes was arrested April 6 after authorities say she scraped a patrol car making a turn.
The misdemeanor complaint filed Tuesday alleges she refused to take a test at the time that could've determined whether she was drunk or under the influence of drugs.
Because of her refusal, authorities may suspend her driver's license for a year.
Her publicist, Melissa Raubvogel, didn't immediately return an e-mail.
Bynes appeared in the Nickelodeon series "What I Like About You" and the film "Easy A."
