The actress, who just turned 26 on Tuesday, was pulled over after knocking a radio car in her black BMW.
Former child actress Amanda Bynes has been arrested for driving under the influence in West Hollywood on early Friday, April 6 morning. Ironically, the 26-year-old actress knocked a police car when she tried to pass it.
West Hollywood Sheriff's Department released a statement about the incident, saying, "A Los Angeles County Sheriff's Deputy in a marked black and white radio car, was stopped at the intersection of ...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 the right of the radio car, colliding with the right rear quarter panel of the radio car."
Bynes was immediately pulled over and arrested after the officer found out that she had been drinking. She was booked at West Hollywood Sheriff's Station and her bail was set to $5,000. According to Gossip Cop, she was still behind bars as of Friday morning.
Bynes, who celebrated her birthday on April 3, also got into trouble with the law last month when she was talking on her cell phone while driving in Los Angeles. A police was to give her a ticket but she reportedly sped off. However, she did show up at a police station later the same day to sign the ticket.
