An officer suspected 26-year-old actress Amanda Bynes had been drinking, and arrested her for driving under the influence. Bynes was booked at the West Hollywood Sheriff’s Station and bail was set at $5,000 (a booking photo shows the actress with a full head of purple-pink hair). She was released Friday morning without having to pay the bond and issued a citation, meaning she’ll report to court later, according to E!
Amanda Bynes, the Nickelodeon actress known for her TV series “What I Like About You” and movies like “She’s the Man” and “What a Girl Wants,” was arrested early Friday morning on a misdemeanor DUI charge, according to reports. Even worse: She collided with a police car.
The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department tells E! News that a police car was preparing to turn right in West Hollywood at approximately 3 a.m. when the actress, driving a black BMW, allegedly tried to pass and collided with the right rear panel of the cruiser, causing minor paint damage to both vehicles.
