Amanda Bynes arrested on suspicion of DUI in WeHo
Amanda Bynes was arrested early Friday morning on suspicion of DUI in West Hollywood after she allegedly hit the rear corner of a sheriff's cruiser while trying to pass it.
That is most certainly not "What a Girl Wants."
In the wake of her 3 a.m. arrest, the "She's the Man" actress and former Nickelodeon star was in custody at the West Hollywood Sheriff's Station, L.A. Now reported, before being released around 10:30 a.m. on $5,000 bail. She was arrested near the intersection of Robertson and Santa Monica boulevards.
Bynes has been hitting the Hollywood party scene recently, according to TMZ, which had late-night St. Patrick's Day footage taken outside a club where the photographer cautioned the valet against letting her drive — a caution that was ignored as the actress left in her Range Rover with a friend.
Yes, we did say "actress," though it's hard to tell sometimes: Bynes retired from acting for a whole month in the summer of 2010, only to announce her return via Twitter a bit ahead of the release of "Easy A," which she appeared in with Emma Stone. That September 2010 release is still her most recent.
And about that hair in the mug shot above — it would appear to be the latter days of lilac, as Bynes broadcast a month ago on Twitter, "Did I mention I dyed my hair lilac?!?!?! LILAC !!!!!!!!"
Just when we were really starting to miss Lindsay ...
