(Newser) – If Amanda Bynes' scary driving issues and deteriorating mental health have you thinking of another former child star, you're not the only one. Yes, even Lindsay Lohan is apparently reminded of Lindsay Lohan when she reads about Bynes' troubles, as evidenced by this tweet from LiLo: "Why did I get put in jail and a nickelodeon star has had NO punishment(s) so far?" Shockingly, we have to agree with La Lohan on this one, although to be fair, Bynes has thus far avoided implication in any jewelry thefts.

Lohan aired the sentiment shortly after news broke that Bynes—whose license is suspended—was pulled over yet again yesterday. Her car, at least, got impounded this time, E! reports. Prior to that, Bynes was photographed driving Thursday night with her face covered, which is probably about as safe as it sounds. But she insists she's fine and totally not crazy, TMZ reports. She also denies smoking pot while driving, and says the pipe she was pictured with in her car actually contained tobacco. Which sounds likely. (Read more Lindsay Lohan stories.)
