Amanda Bynes: Her Inebriated Past

Somewhere, Lindsay Lohan is doing a happy dance.

I’m still not entirely convinced Amanda Bynes isn’t pulling a Sacha Baron Cohen on us, but whatever, that mug shot looked kind of real, so I’ll just go with it.

The once clean-cut actress has been a regular on the Hollywood party scene recently, according to This probably comes as a surprise to her dad, who claims: “My daughter doesn’t drink.”

But on March 22, Bynes hit up the West Hollywood hotspot Greystone Manor, where two friends had to hold her up because she was allegedly so wasted.

Before that, on March 17, TMZ caught Amanda leaving the same club, seemingly highly intoxicated. She got behind the wheel, and despite pleas from both the valet and TMZ’s photog, Amanda drove off.

When a paparazzo is telling you to be careful, you know you got problems.

Amanda’s dad says of her recent DUI arrest: “I was told that she blew a zero on the Breathalyzer. She didn’t have a single drink that night.”

What’s more, it’s also the officer’s fault that Amanda hit the police car, because, according to Daddy Bynes, he pulled out in front of her as she was turning. So why did the cops think she was drunk? Mr. Bynes blamed it on her being “upset and very emotional” while she was being arrested.

A few months before Easy A was released, Bynes declared via Twitter that she didn’t enjoy acting anymore and planned to retire. 45 days later, she Tweeted that she was “unretired.”

“She is a good girl,” Rick Bynes told ‘People.’ “She just chooses not to work, and because of that, people go after her.”
