LOS ANGELES — Authorities say actress Amanda Bynes has been arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence after she grazed a sheriff’s patrol car.

The 26-year-old actress was arrested around 3 a.m. Friday in West Hollywood.

The Los Angeles County sheriff’s department says that Bynes attempted to pass a patrol car making a right turn when she hit it. Deputies who arrested her suspect she was drunk at the time.

Bynes is being held on $5,000 bail. Her publicist, Melissa Raubvogel, did not immediately return a call and an email from The Associated Press.

The actress appeared in the 2010 film “Easy A” and the Nickelodeon series “What I Like About You.”

Deputies say there was paint damage to both cars, but no one was injured.

Bynes has been seen at Hollywood parties 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.
