(TMZ) – Amanda Bynes has officially been charged with DUI after her arrest back in April — when she sideswiped a cop car and allegedly attempted to flee the scene.

Bynes has been charged with one count of misdemeanor DUI — and the D.A. has sought a sentencing enhancement because the actress refused to take either a breathalyzer or a blood test.

Bynes has not been charged with hit-and-run.

If convicted — with the sentencing enhancement — we’re told Bynes faces a minimum of 48 hours in jail … and a maximum of 6 months.

But because of jail overcrowding, it’s unlikely Bynes will ever serve longer than a few hours.

The incident occurred at Robertson and Santa Monica Blvd.

UPDATE: Amanda took to Twitter to dispute the claims and to ask President Barack Obama for help.

She wrote in one tweet: “I can’t help but laugh at all of you writing fake stories about me. I was not in any hit and runs. I don’t drink so the DUI is false.”

She then continued: “Hey @BarackObama… I don’t drink. Please fire the cop who arrested me. I also don’t hit and run. The end.”
