After nearly a year of relative calm, Amanda Bynes was arrested over this weekend for allegedly driving under the influence. Yes, again.The California Highway Patrol arrested Bynes, 28, around 3 a.m. Sunday morning for driving under the influence, according to E! Online. She was held at the Van Nuys station before being released on $15,000 bail later at 12:44 p.m.

This certainly isn't Bynes' first brush with the law or even DUI arrest but it is her first since she went to live back home with her parents after her involuntary stay in rehab. Previously, Bynes had been arrested for side-swiping a deputy's car, throwing a bong, driving on a suspended license and lighting her dog on fire.

Things had seemed to calm down for the actress after she was reportedly treated for schizophrenia and after she was put under her parents' conservatorship. That conservatorship ended this month, and one source told TMZ that when it ended "things started going haywire." The source says Bynes moved out of her parents' place to an apartment in Orange County.

This arrest could cause her more legal problems, given that she's already on probation.
