Oh, Amanda Bynes. What are we going to do with you?
Back on April 6, the 26-year-old actress was arrested after sideswiping a police car as she attempted to make a right hand turn, all (allegedly) while under the influence of alcohol or drugs—or possibly both. Whatever she was (or was not) on, she refused to take a Breathalyzer or drug test, which didn't go over so well with LA's finest.
After Bynes' hearing yesterday, in which the actress was formally charged, she took to Twitter to enlist the help of her mother her fans the president of the United States.
"I don't drink," she tweeted to @BarackObama. "Please fire the cop who arrested me. I also don't hit and run. The end."
It certainly may be the end of something… but the jury's still out as to what. Shockingly, there has been no formal reply from the Obama camp to the request.
As recounted by The Hollywood Reporter, the April 6 incident, however, is just one in a list of driving-related headaches for Bynes. She has also reportedly sideswiped another vehicle, held up traffic while struggling through a three-point U-turn and backing over a curb while texting.
She's scheduled to appear in front of the Beverly Hills Superior Court Judge Elden Fox (apparently his real name), who also presided over the majority of Lindsay Lohan's DUI case. Only time will tell whether Fox believes Bynes' claim that she's a teetotaler, but something tells us that's going to be a tough sell.
In the meantime, maybe buy some rollerblades?
