Amanda Bynes was booked for driving under the influence early this morning in West Hollywood after she clipped a Sheriff’s patrol vehicle and then failed a DUI test.
The incident happened at around 3AM at Robertson and Santa Monica Blvd.
A West Hollywood Sheriff’s Deputy in a marked black and white patrol car was stopped at the intersection of northbound Robertson Boulevard at Santa Monica Boulevard preparing to turn right when a black BMW driven by Bynes attempted to pass to the right of the patrol car, colliding with the right rear quarter panel vehicle. There was minor paint transfer damage to both vehicles.
Bynes was detained for an investigation and was subsequently arrested for driving under the influence and booked at West Hollywood Sheriff’s Station.
Bail has been set at $5,000.
Bynes has been frequenting the Hollywood party scene recently, hitting up several clubs over the last few weeks, according to our friends at TMZ.
Just last month — on St. Patrick’s Day — TMZ cameras saw Bynes leaving Greystone Manor, and thought she appeared to be extremely intoxicated. One of our cameramen even warned the valet not to let Amanda drive, but she got into the driver’s seat anyway … and took off (below).
A week before that, Amanda bolted from a cop while he was writing her a ticket. She was pulled over for talking on a cell phone, and while the cop was writing her up … she drove away.
Amanda later swung by the police station and signed the ticket. So far, she hasn’t faced additional charges stemming from that incident.
