Amanda Bynes and Lindsay Lohan have a lot more in common than they think. The “What I Like About You” actress fled Los Angeles to New York City over the weekend, a few weeks after the “Mean Girls” star – who called out Bynes for getting off easy in her hit-and-run cases – did the same. Bynes, who missed a hearing regarding her suspended license in L.A. on Monday, was spotted in midtown Manhattan on Saturday “aimlessly wandering around for hours,” an eyewitness tells TMZ, which also has a photo of her carrying shopping bags.

In an interview with People magazine last week, Bynes revealed that she planned on moving to the Big Apple to pursue a career in fashion now that she is “retired” from acting. TMZ adds that the 26-year-old has told friends that she has no plans to return to L.A., even though her parents have just moved there from Texas to be closer to their troubled daughter.

When Bynes was caught driving on a suspended license on September 16 after police witnessed her aimlessly driving around a valet area of Bob Hope Airport in Burbank, California, at 8 a.m., it’s unclear if she was there to take a flight. Approximately 90 minutes later, she exited the airport and was pulled over yet again by police … and that time, they impounded her vehicle.

Let’s hope Bynes doesn’t join forces with Lohan in NYC. In the wee hours last Wednesday, the “Liz & Dick” actress was arrested for hit-and-run – something Bynes knows a thing or two about – as she pulled into the Dream Hotel for a night of partying.
