amanda bynes gi 500 Amanda Bynes arrested for DUIActress Amanda Bynes is behind bars after being arrested for driving under the influence early in the morning on April 6.

According to TMZ, the “Hairspray” star tried to pass a police car in Hollywood around 3 a.m. when she sideswiped the vehicle. The cops pulled her over, and subsequently booked her for a DUI. Her bail has been set at $5,000.

This isn’t Bynes’ first run-in with the cops in recent months. Back in March, the actress bolted from the cops as a policeman was writing her a ticket. He’d pulled her over for talking on her phone while driving, and decided not to pursue her since he’d already written down her information. Bynes later dropped by the police station to sign her ticket.

Bynes turned 26 on April 3 — maybe she was still celebrating.
