Actress Amanda Bynes, 26, has been making headlines recently–for all the wrong reasons.
The All That and Easy A star was arrested April 6 on suspicion of driving under the influence of alcohol after she sideswiped a police officer’s vehicle.
This departure from the actress’s normally clean image has surprised her fans and even her family. Her father, Rick Bynes, told People magazine that his daughter “doesn’t drink.” Bynes has made it clear in the past that she’s focused on her work, not the Hollywood partying scene.
I want to be known for the work I’ve done, as opposed to where I go on Saturday nights (Bynes in 2005 at age 18).
Unfortunately, it appears she didn’t learn from her arrest. On April 12, she backed over a curb while texting behind the wheel after leaving an LA hotspot, and stopped traffic on April 15 while making a slow turn to visit a popular bar and restaurant.
Girls, whether Bynes has a problem with alcohol abuse or is just trying to make headlines to stay relevant in the Devil’s Playground, let’s pray for her strength and that she stops this dangerous behavior before she hurts herself or someone else.
