Amanda Bynes charged with DUI
Los Angeles: Actress Amanda Bynes has been charged with a DUI following an April arrest after she accidentally drove into a police car.
The 26-year-old has been charged with one count of misdemeanor DUI (Driving Under Influence) and the District Attorney`s officials are seeking a sentencing enhancement because she refused to take either a breathalyzer or a blood test.
If convicted, Bynes faces a maximum of six months behind bars, according to TMZ Online.
Bynes` April arrest prompted her father Rick Bynes to speak out in his daughter`s defence, insisting the only thing she was guilty of was being "upset and very emotional".
"She was not drunk... She didn`t have a single drink that night. My daughter doesn`t drink," he said.
About a week before her arrest, she was spotted holding up traffic while making a slow three-point U-turn and week after, she smashed into a curb while texting, right before going to a West Hollywood nightclub.
