Amanda Bynes has been arrested for a DUI.
The actress, who appeared to be on the way to putting her life back together, was pulled over in Los Angeles on Sunday at around 3 a.m. and was arrested and charged with a misdemeanor. The actress is still on probation. Not good!
The California Highway Patrol took the troubled former actress into custody early Sunday morning after they “determined she was under the influence of a controlled substance”.
There are reports the “substance” was marijuana, but that hasn’t been confirmed yet.
Bynes reportedly stopped the Mercedes she was driving in the middle of an intersection on Van Nuys Boulevard in Los Angeles’ San Fernando Valley.
Law enforcement sources revealed that the “She’s The Man” actress was on drugs, but the CHP has yet to make an official announcement confirming this report.
She was reportedly booked on a misdemeanor DUI.
The 28-year-old star was held at the Van Nuys, Calif. station on $15,000 bail before she was released at 12:44 p.m. the same day.
Amanda has been living with her parents in a LA suburb and had been taking fashion design classes in downtown LA earlier this year. She appeared to be doing well.
Her parents had a conservatorship which ended earlier this month and an insider said, “Things started going haywire.”
Amanda reportedly moved out of her parents home into an Orange County apartment. A source said she had been smoking weed for weeks and starting to go downhill once again.
In February, Bynes had been place on three-years’ probation from her 2012 DUI arrest.
The former Nickelodeon star was involuntarily hospitalized for a mental health evaluation last July after she started a fire in an elderly woman’s driveway. This strange incident came after other erratic behavior as well as endangerment arrest, car accidents, and DUI arrests.
Bynes completed a rehab stint and had gotten her driver’s license back, but would “remain under her mother’s legal control until at least September.”
She currently has an upcoming court date scheduled for Oct. 23.
