This story was originally published on September 29:
Amanda Bynes was arrested Sunday morning for a DUI. The incident occurred five months after her license was reinstated. The 28-year-old actress was taken into custody after she was stopped outside of Los Angeles at approximately 3 a.m., when California Highway Patrol suspected she was driving under the influence. Bynes was charged with a misdemeanor and held on $15,000 bail. She was released later that day.
