Now that Lindsay Lohan has cleaned up her act, I guess Hollywood has a 'sloppy young starlet' void that needs to be filled.
Oh hi, Amanda Bynes.
Bynes was arrested for DUI in West Hollywood early Friday morning, according to TMZ. According to law enforcement sources, Bynes was attempting to pass a cop car when she sideswiped it.
What kind of drunk are you that you get behind the wheel, see a cop and then think, “Dammit these people who could arrest me are really getting in my way!” I’m surprised she didn’t lean on the horn.
She was reportedly busted at 3 AM and is still behind bars. Her bail has been set at $5,000.
Bynes has been a regular in the Hollywood party scene recently, having frequented several clubs over the past few weeks. As TMZ reports, 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.”
And a week before that, Amanda sped away from a cop while he was writing her a ticket. She was pulled over for talking on her cell phone. Then, while the cop was writing the ticket, she just drove off. But to be fair, she was probably in a huge hurry because she has so many movies to make.
After the incident, Amanda stopped by the police station to sign the ticket. No charges were filed from that incident.
