Actress Amanda Bynes Charged with DUI

The California Highway Patrol arrested actress Amanda Bynes at 4:10 a.m. on Sunday. Bynes, 28, was booked by the LAPD at 7 a.m. and charged with misdemeanor DUI. She was released at 12:44 p.m. Sunday on $15,000 bail.

Bynes allegedly ran a red light and stopped in the middle of an intersection in Sherman Oaks, California. The officer believed she was under the influence and noted that she was unable to complete the field sobriety tests. While at the station, Bynes was given a drug evaluation and reportedly could not complete the hand-eye coordination tests. Toxicology results are expected in 30 to 60 days.

In 2012, Bynes was arrested for DUI but plead guilty to a lesser alcohol-related offense. She did not serve jail time but was given three years probation and was required to attend a three-month alcohol education course. She is currently still on probation for this charge.

Bynes’ next court date is October 23.
