Amanda Bynes - Amanda Bynes settles hit and run case

Amanda Bynes has settled her hit-and-run cases.

The troubled former actress was due in court on December 17 to face charges relating to two separate incidents - where she allegedly ran into a car and fled in the scene - in April and August, but they were formally dismissed earlier this week.

A source told RadarOnline: ''Amanda Bynes was able to reach a civil compromise in both of her hit-and run-cases.

''The two separate victims agreed to dismiss the charges after a financial settlement was reached with both... There really is no need to pursue legal charges because damage to their respective vehicles was paid for.

''Her lawyer Richard Hutton advanced the case and went in early to avoid the media.''

This will come as a relief for the 'Easy A' star as if she had been convicted on both counts, she could have faced up to 12 months in jail.

Along with her legal troubles, Amanda, 26, was involved in two bizarre episodes in September, locking herself in a store changing room for nearly two hours and refusing to come out and stripping off during a gym class and friends say her parents don't know what to do as Amanda has cut contact with everyone.

The insider explained: ''Amanda shut them out and isn't speaking to them. She is doing everything on her own. She has no direction.

''Amanda is out of control. She won't accept help from anybody . . . She's completely lost.''
