Actress Amanda Bynes has been charged with misdemeanor DUI after investigators say she crashed into a sheriff's patrol car in West Hollywood two months ago.

Officials say the 26-year-old "What I Like About You" actress rear-ended the vehicle in the early morning hours of April 6.

The DUI charge includes an allegation that Bynes refused the officer's request to submit to a chemical test. Because of her refusal, authorities may suspend her driver's license for a year.

Bynes is set to be arraigned Wednesday but is not required to appear in person.
