Amanda Bynes' car was impounded on Sunday after she was pulled over by police for driving with a suspended license.
The 26-year-old former Nickleodeon star's black BMW was impounded after she was stopped at around 9am in the Burbank, California, area.
Bynes was also given a misdemeanor ticket for the offense.
However, despite Bynes' various run ins with the police over the past few months, there is one person who believes they are being too lenient with the young star.
