Amanda Bynes was arrested on Friday at 3 a.m. on suspicion of DUI after she allegedly hit a sheriff’s cruiser while attempting to pass in her black BMW.
After being arrested near the intersection of Robertson and Santa Monica boulevards in West Hollywood, Amanda Bynes spent several hours locked in jail before her $5,000 bail was posted.
The former Nickelodeon star was then seen walking, clothed in the same scandalous outfit she was wearing when she allegedly crashed into a cop’s car, to the tow yard at which the black BMW she was driving was impounded.
The young actress, who was named one of Teen People’s “25 Hottest Stars Under 25″ back in 2006 and again in 2007, was listed as the fifth highest paid celebrity under the age of 21 as her earnings were reportedly $2.5 million at the time.
Amanda Bynes is well known for her roles in the hit television series The Amanda Show and All That, both of which were popular Nickelodeon shows in the 1990s and early 2000s.
This isn’t the first time Amanda Bynes has found herself in trouble with the law as she was allegedly pulled over just last month for talking on her cellular phone while behind the wheel. While the officer was busy writing her a ticket, she decided it would be an excellent opportunity to simply drive away. After the incident, she did make a personal appearance at the police station in order to sign the traffic ticket. At this time, there have been no additional charges filed stemming from the incident.
Amanda Bynes is currently out on bail and back on the road after what was quite possibly one of the most disastrous nights of her life.
