Amanda Bynes' attorney formally pled not guilty on behalf of the actress Wednesday morning in Beverly Hills in connection with her DUI arrest in April, RadarOnline.com is reporting.

Bynes' lawyer, Richard Hutton, entered the plea during a brief arraignment in Judge Elden Fox's courtroom. Bynes herself did not appear in court.  A source close to the actress tells us, "Amanda maintains she wasn't drunk, and is vowing to fight the charges." Bynes bizarrely tweeted Tuesday afternoon about her DUI arrest: "Hey @BarackObama... I don't drink. Please fire the cop who arrested me. I also don't hit and run. The end."

Bynes was arrested on April 6 in West Hollywood, California, just days after she turned 26. According to a previously released statement from the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department: "A Los Angeles County Sheriff's Deputy in a marked black and white radio car was stopped at the intersection of N/B Robertson Boulevard and Santa Monica Boulevard preparing to turn right onto Santa Monica Boulevard. When a black BMW driven by actress Amanda Bynes attempted to pass to the right of the radio car, colliding with the right rear quarter panel of the radio car.

Amanda Bynes was subsequently arrested for driving under the influence and booked at West Hollywood Sheriff's Station."

If convicted of the DUI and related charge, the actress could lose her driver's license for a year, and be sentenced to 48 hours in jail.
