Amanda Bynes Busted for DUI Actress pulled over after sideswiping cop car: police sources By Evann Gastaldo, Newser Staff Posted Apr 6, 2012 11:51 AM CDT 14 comments Comments Amanda Bynes arrives at the MTV Video Music Awards on Sunday, Sept. 13, 2009 in New York. (AP Photo/Peter Kramer) (Newser) – Rough: Amanda Bynes was busted on suspicion of DUI this morning. Rougher: after allegedly sideswiping a police car. Law enforcement sources say she was attempting to pass the car at the time, and was then pulled over around 3am. TMZ reports that she's still in jail with bail set at $5,000, and notes that its own cameras saw Bynes apparently driving drunk on St. Patrick's Day. Also last month, Bynes was pulled over for talking on her phone while driving—and drove off while the cop was writing her a ticket, Gossip Cop notes. She later signed it at the police station.
