Amanda Bynes' father is coming to her defense following her alleged fender-bender with a cop car last week in Los Angeles.
Police arrested Amanda following the incident on suspicion of driving under the influence, but her father Rick Bynes tells People magazine that the 26-year-old actress hadn't been drinking.
"She was not drunk," he says. "I was told that she blew a zero on the Breathalyzer. She didn't have a single drink that night...My daughter doesn't drink."
Rick Bynes goes on to say that he believes the police officer who arrested his daughter was the one at fault, claiming the officer was the one who pulled out in front of her as she was turning at the West Hollywood intersection where she received her citation.
The report from the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department says that the black-and-white cop car was preparing to turn right at about 3 a.m. at the intersection in question "when a black BMW driven by... Bynes attempted to pass to the right ... colliding with the right rear quarter panel."
Instead of intoxication, Rick says his daughter was just “upset and very emotional” in the wake of the stop.
"She is a good girl,” he adds. “She just chooses not to work, and because of that, people go after her."
Amanda was held at the West Hollywood Sheriff's station, and later released. She's expected to appear in court to address the citation of investigation for DUI once a date is set, People magazine reports.
I've been surfing online more than 3 hours lately, yet I never discovered any attention-grabbing article like yours. It is beautiful worth enough for me. In my opinion, if all web owners and bloggers made just right content material as you probably did, the net will be a lot more useful than ever before.
I love amanda bynes she is my favorite actress. The cop lied. I stand behind amanda bynes
The cops are lying as usual. One tried to do a similar thing to my mother a number of years ago by writing her a ticket for an accident he caused. The judge threw it out,
wow she is gorgeous why are people hating on her Amanda Bynes is one of the few respectable actresses left you go Amanda i stand behind you!
Wow she looks so different!!!!!!
I don't know if she was drinking or not but I did her last night at a Holiday Inn Express.
Dr. Bynes is admirable for sticking up for his daughter. However, he was not there so how can he really assume that the cop was at fault. If she was trying to pass on the RIGHT, than she for sure was at fault. As for the "she chooses not to work, and because of that people go after her," seriously?? I think not. NOW, he's reaching – really reaching. Her job status had nothing to do with this.
My black boyfriend is always going on how nice it would be to have Amanda swallow his load. Is this Amanda chick even into BBC? My BF is 63 yrs old and loves white meat. We met years ago back at the Greyhound Station in Biloxi, Mississippi.
Bynes hasn't been known to make foolish decision.

WHAT IS EVERYONE WHO DRINKS ALCOHOL DECIDE NOT TO DRIVE AFTER
WOULD NOT THAT MAKE THE WORLD A BETTER PLACE? WHAT IF EVERYONE
SAID GOOD THINGS ABOUT PEOPLE EVERYDAY WOULD NOT THAT DRAW US ALL CLOSER
TOGETHER? WHAT IF EVERYONE WHO OWNED A WEAPON BURNED THEM AND MAKE A VOW
TO REFUSE TO FIGHT HIS NEIGHBOR WOULD NOT THAT MAKE US HAVE PEACE?
WHO ARE THE PEACEABLE ONES ON THIS EARTH? LISTEN WHEN PEOPLE TALK
AND YOU WILL KNOW WHO THEY ARE
What if people didn't use all caps?
How nice to be able to "choose not to work"
Hahaha, even tho my daughter is rich, insane, annoying, pays all of MY bills FOR me, with her enormous salary.....even tho she never even talks to me, even tho i dont even live with her....I just "know" my daughter is innocent of any crime the police arrested her for. I dont even need a law degree, or any proof, I just "know" she is innocent.....not bc I am her father, but bc I have magical salem witch powers, that allow me to know who is drunk, and who is not without even seeing the crime scene. Oh wait.....that doesnt exist? I meant to say I "know" she wasnt drinking bc ALL celebutants CLEARLY have it SOOOO together, that they would NEVER do anything like that. My daughter is clearly not at fault for the police arresting her for both driving under the influence, and being stupid enough to slam into a police car at 3 am. Seriously, are people stupid enough to believe this? Oh....they are? Ok I stand corrected. Dont worry tho folks, since America cant even afford the INTEREST on all the money we owe in less than 10 yrs, we wont have to worry about all this much longer....bc soon as predicted by Mayans, Egyptians, Nostradamus, Edgar Cayce, The Dogon Tribe in Africa, and MANY, many others.....this world will thankfully come to an end, beginning the new age, the age of supposed "enlightenment", marking the end of a very long cycle of about 25000 yrs. I sure do wish yall would wake up and realize the people are not special in ANY way whatsoever....if you would devote even a little time, thought, and prayer to Jesus Christ (remember that guy who died just so we could have A SMALL chance at eternity), we wouldnt have to worry about how drunk amanda damn bynes was. Please people, for your own sake in eternal hell.....please wake up
I would be VERY surprised if she did something like this... If she did, it would be hard to believe she went from adorable kid on "All That", to this...
You don't know the family Alisa. If you did then : 1- You'd keep your mouth shut about their personal issues, 2- You'd know her parents are divorced & her mom remarried, therefore is not Mrs Bynes, & 3- STFU
Are we looking at the same person? If she is what you all call fat the rest of us are in big trouble.
She likes the black c0ck.
Nothing kills my buzz like getting pulled over by the bacon partol
My mug shot is fly !
I sure hope they put her in prison for a very long time. It's time the law gets tough with these celebrities. They are role models for children.
Ok. So which one of you *loosers* (is that what youre calling yourselves now, loosers instead of losers? Dont want to get it wrong!) has a mug shot that will put Mr or Ms Universe to shame? Anyone? Didnt think so. STFU!
She looks pretty drunk/stoned in her porn video.
I'm on her side. I don't trust cops! They always hiding waiting 2 pull people over for speeding! I hate it when they're in the back of me. They get me nervous cuz I never know if they'll pull me over 4 sumthing stupid. Then bam!! They finds the dead body in my truck! What then, eh?!
Hey, dumba55! Did you read the article or did you come on here and post like you usually do thinking you know it all?!
Did you read the article, dumb azz? That's what the cop said. Daddy said it differently. I think somebody owes Debbie an apology.
We all have problems,take your nasty aura off of her,and maybe her dad does know what his daughter will or won't do,mine does.
@coolguy, while the fat comments are unnecessary, she DID do something wrong... she got a DUI...
"The girl did nothing wrong and all I'm seeing are comments about her being 'fat'."
she is sooo fine
if you are bliiiiind
She does have an odd smile. Even I'll admit that. E
The cop was making a right turn, and she tried to pass him on the right? Either she is the worst driver in the world, or she was on something. If that's not it, then the cop did something, and is covering his butt. I'm sure they did an alcohol/ drug test, which will show the truth.
Poor thing has a very ugly smile.
Yasmeen I am sure is some type of model, not.....what a jealous loser...,,
Wow she is an oinker. Even has the pinkish skin like Ms. Piggy. No insult intended to Ms. Piggy of course. Amanda is 26. Who cares if she had something to drink. The piggy has to grow up sometime. Is the going to be daddy's darling little girl living at home and playing with stuffed animals the rest of her life?
Wow, the comments I'm reading on here make me weep for the future: The girl did nothing wrong and all I'm seeing are comments about her being 'fat'. Are you kidding me? Is this what you basement dwelling mutants do all day? Post vicious lies and garbage on the internet all day? You people disgust me, and are walking reminders of where this country is headed.
She did nothing wrong except for driving around drunk at 3 in the morning. We all do that, right?
I think it's a little extreme to believe that a few clowns here hold the fate of the nation in their hands. Or that that their views and mentalities are indicative of the larger population
nat halie and jasmine I am sure are the most georgious creatures on this planet......Amanda is a cute young girl. Wonder why so many young people of body image problems.....possibly due to jerks like you?????
I agree with Laura, these Celebrities are just normal people with the same issues as everyone else...So calling her Fat isnt very nice.
I bet this little missy had some solanum to do when she got home. I bet she is still grounded. And 26 years old. LOL. How pathetic.
solanum = splanin = explaning
Plus almost 30 and still not married? I wonder if she is possibly lesbean?
Another enabler parent who refuses to believe their precious child could do anything wrong. Why was she out at 3 am anyway? That should be a clue pops.
Bingo! I was thinking the same thing.
Soooo, because she was out at 3 AM means she was drinking?! You can't make an assumption like that...there have been many times that I was hanging out with friends at their apartment until that hour of the morning and no drinks were involved. Besides, she is a 26 year old grown woman, who says she can't be out at 3 am?
Who cares why she was out, she is 26 and an adult... Drinking is not the only reason to be out late....
So you are a pig...I smelled jealous fat girl all over you.
anyone but me think jasmine's hoping, dreaming for a roll in the mud?????
I know the Bynes family and if her father is speaking up for her like he is, chances are there are some questions to answered by the policeperson in question. I have always found Dr. and Mrs Bynes to be truthful. kind, and down to earth people. I wish Amanda luck as she tackles this situation facing her.
Woooo she is a fatty.
I don't think she is fat. I do think she has a really big and round face.
And you're an idiot. Where's your picture so we can all look at your flaws and anonymously degrade YOU? Do yourself a favor: Grow up.
Jasmine, pigs have a higher IQ than you do! Wow, jealous much?
nd, were you dropped on your head as a child? I think so!
Clementine, you're just sick in the head. Seek professional help soon.
Yasmeen, what kind of name is that? Wait, I bet I know..I bet you are a big-butt porker too with a gap in your teeth. If you are going to post using multiple names Jasmine, at least pick a good name.
This stinks of Los Angeles Sheriff's Department gone bad again. They are a terrible police force and I can easily see them covering up for a lone officer at fault by them arresting a celebrity. It's too bad West Hollywood doesn't have it's own police force. It would be a much better place.
I am sure she wasn't sober people with no job are always out at 3 AM....
Why did she hit the car?
She is so fat she was taking up the whole road. She is a giiiiant hippopotamous.
alot of jealous people around it seems. You go girl!
If I were a female, I might be jealous too. Miss Bynes is so beautiful
Sounds like a spoiled brat who doesn't take responsibility for her own actions and decisions...
She sure is a porker. Oink oink. Here piggy piggy piggy.
Wow, you're horrible, but then again you obviously have a low I.Q. so maybe I should show some compassion for you.
You are a pig too what a coinkydink.
Hey Nat, what's the problem? Haven't gotten any in a while???? Yeah for coolguy, at least there is some hope.
100 % sure she's prob better looking then you, easiest thing for a loser behind their computer to be is jealous.
Jealous much? I think she is gorgeous.
Really? because she isnt the typical hollywood young starlett strung out on drugs and disgustingly skinny she is a porker?? what an idiot you are!!!
you are obviously looking at the wrong pic, she is hardly overweight...
Observer is a liberal stooge.
And that makes the cowardly and anonymous "Observer is a LIberal Stooge" a Conservative Thug?
