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.

It's safe to assume that most people leaving a club or bar are going to be intoxicated. While there is a bit of a responsibility if you know someone is driving behind the wheel we gotta face the reality that people go to a bar/club to drink and when they leave they probably are not fully fit to operate a motor vehicle.

I think it was sad that the camera man didn't do more to stop her from driving off while drunk - next time call the cops !!!She can hurt innocent people - drunk driving is not right & sitting back & watching someone do it is even worse---

Take away the stupid "dude" and "bro" comments and see how it sounds. What you have here is competing and contradictory moral values. The post-60...'s permissiveness is conflicting with the 80's narc-type safety Nazi insistence. I promise you the guy would wilt trying to just say the SAME THINGS without his crutch-words to try to balance things. Pick a side for God's sake.
