Former Child Star Amanda Bynes Busted For DUI--Asks Obama To Fire Cop Who Arrested Her

Former Nickelodeon star Amanda Bynes, 26, was charged with driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs on Tuesday and the actress immediately took the matter to the White House.

Bynes, who is known for her colourful tweets, pleaded with President Obama to fire the cop who initially arrested her.

‘ misdemeanour charges stem from an April 6 arrest, when she was pulled over at 3 a.m. in West Hollywood after allegedly sideswiping a police car in her BMW and reportedly tried to flee the scene.

Although Bynes has not been charged with a hit and run, she does face a minimum of 48 hours in jail and a maximum of 6 months.

But most likely, Bynes will only have to serve a few hours in one of Los Angeles’ overcrowded jails.

Hopefully she’ll be live-tweeting.
