In the latest brush with the law, Amanda Bynes was arrested in the early hours of Sunday morning this week on the suspicion of driving while under the influence of a drug. This according to local authorities who made confirmations to the press earlier today (Monday). At 28 this is just one of several run-ins with law-enforcement that Bynes has faced over the last few years.
On Sunday the former actor was stopped by a California Highway Patrol officer after she was found idle at an intersection within the Van Nuys neighborhood of Los Angeles. This was around 4 a.m. according to the police report. Following the arrest Bynes was released after posting $15,000 bail. Bynes is already on probation from a 2012 arrest after she hit a Los Angeles County sheriff’s patrol car, that arrest was also for driving under the influence. Bynes pleaded no contest to alcohol-related reckless driving back in February of this year.
This year Bynes was undergoing psychiatric treatment, she was picked up by authorities after setting a fire in the driveway of a home in Thousand Oaks, California.
