Awww… but she was doing so good after her arrest in 2012! Former child star, Amanda Bynes, has spent a lot of time away from the limelight after her infamous meltdown that led to her being held at a California psych ward. After completing her therapy, she got back on her feet, moved back in with her parents and enrolled in a course in fashion design.
But the 28-year-old actress was reportedly arrested yet again around 3AM for DUI last Sunday. She was charged with a misdemeanor after police “determined she was under the influence of a controlled substance” while driving.
The former Nickelodeon star was held on a $15,000 bail and was released around 12:44 PM that same day. According to authorities, Bynes was travelling on Riverside Drive in Sherman Oaks when she was asked to pull over after she stopped for the red light in the middle of the intersection. Bynes was “given a series of field sobriety tests, which she was unable to complete.”
Upon being transported to the CPH West Valley Office, Bynes underwent a drug evaluation test, that according to officials, determined she was under the influence of a controlled substance. The substance in question wasn’t released to the public as of press time.
This wasn’t the first time the troubled actress was arrested for driving under the influence. In 2012, she was arrested for a DUI and was placed on a three-year’ probation. As part of her plea deal, she was also ordered by the court to complete a three-month alcohol education program.
In April 2013, she got into several driving related arrests in Los Angeles including an incident where she was accused of throwing a bong out of her NYC apartment to evade arrest.
Before her run-ins with the law, Bynes started a series of crazy outbursts on Twitter, calling A-list celebrities “ugly” and posting revealing selfies of herself, wearing crazy wigs and asking rapper, Drake to “murder her vagina“.
