The Word: Amanda Bynes arrested for DUI

Amanda Bynes was snapped in this booking photo after being arrested for a DUI for running into a cop car.

Nickelodeon star Amanda Bynes, 26, showed she isn’t that innocent by pulling a very Lohan-esque move over the weekend: She drunkenly careened into a police car in the wee hours of Friday morning.
According to People magazine, the “Hairspray” actress was arrested for driving under the influence in Los Angeles after colliding with a police car at around 3 a.m. on Friday, after partying at L.A.’s Greystone Manor Club.

“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,” the West Hollywood Sheriff’s office said in a statement.

“There was minor paint transfer damage to both vehicles. Amanda Bynes was subsequently arrested for driving under the influence and booked at West Hollywood Sheriff’s Station.” The actress sported pink-highlighted hair in her mug shot, and after posting $5,000 for bail, she was spotted the next day in the same leg-baring outfit to retrieve her BMW from an impound lot, according to TMZ.

Look on the bright side, Bynes: The “I’m not drunk. I’m just kinda over it and bored” face you’re trying to work in your booking photo is some of the best acting work you’ve done in years.
