A 23-year-old woman pulled what we are now referring to as an "Amanda Bynes": she got a DUI after slamming into a sheriff's patrol car.

Only this accident was far worse than Bynes' who merely sideswiped the patrol cruiser. It happened not long after two deputies had pulled over someone on the side of PCH around 3 am Friday in Lomita, according to a release from sheriff's deputies. The patrol car had its flashing lights on, but the driver Judy Wang crashed right into the unoccupied car sending it 20 feet forward into the car that had been pulled over. The patrol car might be completely out of commission, but fortunately no one was seriously injured (the passenger in the other car complained of hip pain).

Wang, who is from Buena Park, admitted that she had been drinking. She was jailed, and now she faces felony drunken driving charges.
