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.

So what people, I am sure you have drove while drunk or buzzed you just never got caught. This wake up call was maybe what she needed, It doesn't make her a BAD person just irresponsible. I still think she is a great kid and loved her silly movies.

Unfortunately, another so-called "star" getting away with driving under the influence.
I imagine we will start treating these Hollywood people the same as us regular types when they wind up killing someone!
This is totally unacceptable! This double standard mentality hurts all of us!
Lock this chick up, no probation, as was so generously given to Loser Lohan!
This crap is really getting old, and is frightening.

TMZ, Thank You and Your Team for excellent updates of news events. I hope everything goes well for Amanda. I WOULD LIKE TO SALUTE THE ARMED FORCES AND VETERANS. Congrats on "GOOD FRIDAY" to 101 year old Texana Hollis. My heart is joyful with thanks for all who collectively and diligently helped Texana to regain her home, some happiness and "A BIT OF HEAVEN ON EARTH" (R) Cong. Ryan reminds me of the Crispin Glover in Charlie's Angels which stars Drew Barrymore. I would like to know if Mitt "Etch-A-Sketch Romney is getting his political ideas/ strategies from SNL and Gilligan's Island?" Some media mentions that Romney is OUT-OF-TOUCH. I think he is OUT-IN-SPACE. UNBELIEVABLE AND RIDICULOUS!! WOMEN BEING COMPARED TO CATERPILLARS?! First it was colds, then goons and now punks!! Next it might be a partridge in a pear tree or Row Row Row your boat. WHATEVER!! A RACIAL SLUR IS A RACIAL SLUR. I agree with Nancy Grace of HLN/CNN on what she heard. IT IS WHAT IT IS!! The bureaucracy can make a subliminal attempt to manipulate through visual images and audio technical analysis to convince people of "ANYTHING!!" SO WHAT?!! George Zimmerman (G.Z.) can say "whatever" through whomever! He is "FREE AND NOT ARRESTED!!" Why was G.Z.'s "new attorney" aggressively pointing and vigorously shaking his finger toward the interview cameras? WOW!! What a temper!! I agree with Tyler Perry that there should be a "Federal Law!" against racial profiling. I think President Obama, Congress and the Senate should consider his suggestion. I thought Tyler's experience of being racially profiled was a life threatening and scary experience for his blessed and exceptional life. I believe in my own internal instincts. The jurors who are impartial will decide, guilt/ innocence, whenever there is an arrest, bond set and jury trial. Will there be justice for TRAYVON or a COVER UP?! TRAYVON MARTIN was an unarmed 17 yr old young man. Where is his fair and expedient due process of law?! Where is the focused justice for his grieving parents?! We are now at 40 days and counting. TRAYVON's life matters to people throughout the world. No one knows what happened but GOD, TRAYVON whose defenseless, deceased and George Zimmerman. From my perspective, I will continue to pray for justice, gain knowledge from news reports, blogs and from research. I was not there in Sanford, FL but I did hear on the non-emergency tape the police officer instruct G.Z. not to exit his vehicle. The police officer on the phone did not know that G.Z. was going to disobey his instructions armed with a 9MM pistol and allegedly kill TRAYVON MARTIN. Within the Pledge of Allegiance.. "WITH LIBERTY AND JUSTICE FOR ALL" is important. EQUALITY AND DUE PROCESS OF THE LAW!! ARREST George Zimmerman! NO JUSTICE NO PEACE!! TMZ, Thank You. Have a Wonderful and Blessed Day. I hope everything in your neighborhood is beautiful.
