What the heck is going on with actress Amanda Bynes? The 26-year-old actress was busted in the wee hours of Friday morning in West Hollywood for a suspected DUI after she sideswiped a cop car with her black BMW.Bynes was trying to pass a Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department car when she clipped it with her vehicle. She was pulled over, and the deputies determined she was not fit to be behind the wheel.

"There was minor paint transfer damage to both vehicles," and no one was injured, according to the LASD report.

Which brings us back to Bynes' penchant for partying...and driving...and breaking the law: Just one month ago, Bynes was pulled over for yakking on her cellphone while behind the wheel, but she decided to get all "COPS" on the cops, and peeled out.

TMZ adds that their camera folks spotted Bynes on the party scene in mid-March, and she appeared too intoxicated to drive--enough so for the valet to suggest she not drive. Bynes didn't heed their advice, and got behind the wheel anyhow.
