Amanda Bynes Arrested for DUIby Michelle McGahan | PopCrush
The troubled actress was arrested at 3 AM yesterday, Sept. 28. She was charged with a misdemeanor after cops “determined she was under the influence of a controlled substance” while she was driving, the site reports.
Bynes was held on $15,000 bail at the Van Nuys, California police station before being released around noon.
According to E!, the actress was driving on Riverside Dr. in Sherman Oaks when she stopped at a red light in the middle of the intersection. She reportedly was then pulled over and was given field sobriety tests, “which she was unable to complete.” She was allegedly brought to California Highway Patrol office where she was given a drug evaluation test, which confirmed she was under the influence.
The former Nickelodeon star, who reportedly has a court date scheduled for Oct. 23, was placed on three years of probation in February after her 2012 DUI arrest.
For the better part of the year, Bynes has been laying low and had been seemingly back on track after months of bizarre behavior and driving-related incidents forced her into a treatment facility in December 2013. Prior to this arrest, Bynes been attending college and taking fashion classes, and looking healthier than ever on Twitter.
We wish her the best of luck during this difficult time and hope she gets the help that she needs.
