What Happened to Amanda Bynes?


Amanda Bynes rose to fame as a Nickelodeon star with a bubbly, effusive personality. She quickly became a household name and was known for her comedic timing.

For DUI, Amanda Bynes was taken into custody


After being stopped at Van Nuys Boulevard, Sherman Oaks in Los Angeles by a Sherman Oaks resident, the former Nickelodeon Star was taken into custody for DUI.

According to CBS Los Angeles, she was released after posting $15,000 bail.

She was in the middle of a three-year probation stemming from her 2012 DUI arrest when she was pulled over again on suspicion of driving under the influence, the CHP said.

She appeared disheveled during her arrest but was cooperative throughout the process, a release says.

Bynes reportedly met with high-profile DUI lawyer Richard Hutton shortly after making bail. This is the man who represented Paris Hilton in her notorious DUI case.

The Hairspray actress has been dealing with a series of legal problems since moving to New York City in 2013.

She was arrested in May for criminal possession of marijuana, attempted tampering with evidence and reckless endangerment.

In addition, she was accused of throwing the bong from her Times Square apartment windows.

The case was finally dismissed by her psychiatric evaluation in June 2014.

Amanda Bynes’ first encounter with law was in April 2012. She allegedly drove her BMW black BMW into a cruiser of a Los Angeles County Sheriff’s deputy.

She was convicted of reckless driving, and later received a plea deal that sent her on probation for three years.

Bynes had a series of encounters with law enforcement after the 2012 incident.

In 2013, she was charged with marijuana possession and threw her bong from her New York City apartment windows.

Acting became difficult for her after she was convicted of a criminal offense. Bynes has starred as herself in numerous films including Hairspray and She’s the Man.

Bynes has also been charged with a hit-and-run in California, and she was placed under an involuntary psychiatric hold after starting a fire in a Thousand Oaks home last year.

She is currently in a conservatorship and is living with her parents. After completing a mental evaluation, she will be able to get her driving licence back.

Her apartment was evacuated.

Amanda Bynes, a troubled actress who has been accused of erratic behavior and bizarre legal issues, was reportedly expelled from her New York City apartment.

According to In Touch magazine, the 27-year-old ‘Easy A’ star was kicked out of her high rise in midtown Manhattan on Tuesday.

In Touch reports that Bynes was told she wasn’t welcome to return after being arrested last month for using marijuana in her lobby.

Bynes was charged with reckless endangerment, criminal possession and tampering physical evidence.

Her conservatorship was granted.

After a series of legal troubles and mental health issues, Bynes was placed in a conservatorship.

A judge ordered her mother to take care of her personal, medical and financial decisions.

Eventually, Bynes got her freedom and regained full control over her life after years of work on herself.

Since then, she has been studying fashion design as well as merchandising.

Bynes’s case is similar to Britney Spears’, who was placed in a conservatorship over a prolonged period. The differences in their cases are striking.

Bynes was able to end her conservatorship quickly and easily, in contrast to Britney Spears, who had to go through an arduous court battle to get it terminated.

Lynn and Rick Bynes have supported Bynes in her attempts to end her conservatorship, which has enabled her to be more independent.
