LOS ANGELES — The same day Amanda Bynes was charged with driving under the influence following an April arrest in which she allegedly struck an L.A. County sheriff’s cruiser, the 26-year-old actress called on President Barack Obama to “fire the cop who arrested me.”
The actress was arrested about 3 a.m. on April 6 near the corner of Robertson and Santa Monica boulevards in West Hollywood after her black BMW allegedly hit the rear corner of the sheriff’s vehicle, one incident in a series of traffic mishaps she has been involved in recently.
Bynes denied the allegations in another tweet last month.
“I can’t help but laugh at all of you writing fake stories about me,” she wrote May 27. “I was not in any hit and runs. I don’t drink so the DUI is false.”
She is slated to appear before Beverly Hills Superior Court Judge Elden Fox, who oversaw much of actress Lindsay Lohan’s DUI case. Bynes is also charged with refusing a Breathalyzer or blood-alcohol test.
Bynes, who quickly rose to fame as a comedy star in the Nickelodeon show “All That,” later starred in movies, including the film adaptation of the musical “Hairspray.”
