, renowned American actress and singer who appeared in several successful television series, such as All That and The Amanda Show, on Nickelodeon is under media attention after getting arrested for DUI charges. Amanda Bynes was taken in to custody on Friday morning near West Hollywood after hitting a sheriff’s car. She was trying to pass the car but accidentally rammed in it; of all the cars it had to be a police official’s car and that’s the last thing a drunken driver would want to do.
According to Huffington Post, she was initially interrogated after she hit the car and was later taken to the West Hollywood Sheriff's Station, L.A. at 3 a.m. in the night. It is reported that Amanda would be released by 10:30 a.m. in the morning with a $5,000 bail.
Amanda Bynes has started partying lately as reported by the TMZ. One of her party encounters has also been covered by TMZ where a late-night St. Patrick's Day footage was taken outside a club; a photographer warned the valet that she shouldn’t be allowed to drive. Despite the warning she was allowed to drive and she left the scene.
This isn’t the only encounter with police; Amanda Bynes has been seen in several public appearances where she was warned for one reason or the other. Last month, Bynes was stopped by Los Angeles police for using her cellphone while driving.
It seems Amanda Bynes is currently free and doesn’t have much on her platter hence she is resorting to a lot of partying. In June 2010, Bynes stated that she planned to retire from acting and she broke this news for her fans on Twitter. She said, "I don’t love acting anymore, so I’ve stopped doing it." A month later, Bynes had an apparent change of heart and "unretired". Later in 2011 at the MTV Movie Awards, Bynes told People Magazine that she's just taking "time off” Let’s hope the actress gets back to what she is meant to do and not get caught in such embarrassing acts.
Amanda Bynes also ventured in to film career where she took up several projects for the teenage audiences, including What a Girl Wants, Love Wrecked, She's the Man, Hairspray, Sydney White, and Easy A. She was named one of Teen People's "25 Hottest Stars Under 25" in 2006, and in 2007, Forbes listed her as the fifth highest paid celebrity under 21, with earnings of $2.5 million.
