The Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department tells E! News that a black-and-white was preparing to turn right in West Hollywood at approximately 3 a.m. when the 26-year-old actress, driving a black BMW, allegedly tried to pass and collided with the right rear panel of the cruiser, causing minor paint damage to both vehicles.

Upon further investigation, the officer suspected the "Easy A" star had been drinking and subsequently arrested her for driving under the influence.

Bynes was booked at the West Hollywood Sheriff's Station and bail was set at $5,000. As of press time, she remains behind bars.

Amanda's rep was unavailable for comment.

This isn't the first time Bynes has found herself in trouble with the law.

Per TMZ, the actress was also pulled over by cops on March 7 for allegedly talking on her cell phone, and then allegedly bolted from the scene before the deputy could finish up writing her ticket. She was not arrested, however. Later that day, Bynes returned to the police station to sign her ticket.

Ironically, the day before that incident she tweeted : "Live fast die young bad girls do it well!"
