Amanda Bynes arrested for DUI. Again.

From People Magazine:

Amanda Bynes was arrested early Sunday morning for a DUI, PEOPLE confirms with the California Highway Patrol.

Bynes, 28, was taken into custody at 3 a.m. after police stopped her on suspicion of driving under the influence of a controlled substance outside of Los Angeles, according to E! News. The actress ran a red light at an intersection, only to make a complete stop in the middle of the same intersection, Officer Leland Tang of the California Highway Patrol tells PEOPLE. She was charged with a misdemeanor, held on a $15,000 bail and released later on Sunday.

The actress was first arrested for a DUI in 2012, but she avoided jail time by completing inpatient treatment in December. She was placed on three years probation.

It seemed the former child star was getting her life back together after a series of legal troubles and bizarre behavior: She regained her driver’s license in April and was living with her parents while taking fashion design classes.

Earlier this year, Bynes’ 2012 DUI was reduced to reckless driving and she was placed on three years probation.  If it is proved that she committed the new DUI, it will violate her probation and she will face re-sentencing on that case in addition to the penalties she faces on the new charges.
