Amanda Bynes

Arrested for DUI

After Clipping Cop Car

Exclusive Details

Amanda Bynes was arrested for DUI in West Hollywood
Amanda Bynes was arrested for DUI in West Hollywood early this morning ... TMZ has learned.

Law enforcement sources tell us, Bynes was attempting to pass a cop car in her black BMW ... when she sideswiped the right rear panel of the vehicle. She was pulled over and cops determined she was not fit to be behind the wheel.

We're told the 26-year-old actress was busted at 3 AM ... she's still behind bars.

According to her booking sheet, Bynes is 5'7" and 125 lbs. Her bail has been set at $5,000.

Bynes has been frequenting the Hollywood party scene recently, hitting up several clubs over the last few weeks.

Just last month -- on St. Patrick's Day -- TMZ cameras saw Bynes leaving Greystone Manor, and thought she appeared to be extremely intoxicated. One of our cameramen even warned the valet not to let Amanda drive, but she got into the driver's seat anyway ... and took off (below).



A week before that, Amanda bolted from a cop while he was writing her a ticket. She was pulled over for talking on a cell phone, and while the cop was writing her up ... she drove away.

Amanda later swung by the police station and signed the ticket. So far, she hasn't faced additional charges stemming from that incident.

I feel sorry for her. The rumors about what Hayden Panettiere is involved with -- in cohorts with a lady named Diana Jenkins -- also links Amanda to the same "ring"..

Hollywood uses and abuses underage, minor girls.. Although they're adults now -- if they were exposed and manipulated when they were child stars... it is no wonder they turned out like this.

Very sad, all the way around.

I hope Amanda can get it together before it's too late.

At least she's of legal drinking age. The drinking law in California must read "Must be 21 to drink, unless you have a contract with Disney.

She's just like the kardashians. A disgrace to white people everywhere. I'm glad she got in trouble. Bitch also needs a nosejob.(in Hollywood it's called "deviated septum")

all about the money    

Urgh so sad to hear. I like Amanda and have always had well wishes for her. Sad to hear she's drinking. Seem to think her parents had issues with drinking so she shy'd away from the whole party scene because of it until recently. Hope its a wake up call for her and she straightens her path before she ends up down the wrong road in life.

Sounds like she's the next in line for trouble.. Now we just sit back and watch her life unfold to alcohol and drugs. At least Lindsay finally got her life together.
