Amanda Bynes Manhattan Criminal Court Appearance - July 9, 2013LOS ANGELES, Ca. — Uh-oh, it looks like the Amanda Bynes bad girl hiatus is over. The former Disney star, who’s battling major mental health issues, has been arrested again.

According to TMZ, Bynes was busted early Sunday morning in Los Angeles for driving under the influence of marijuana. The incident report calls her appearance “disheveled,” but makes no mention of the infamous blue wig she wore during her last round of troubles.

Bynes was charged with a misdemeanor DUI and posted $15,000 bail.

Here’s the problem. She got her first DUI in 2012 and is on three years probation for that case. This arrest could mean jail time.

If you recall, 2013 was a pretty terrible year for Bynes following a series of legal trouble and bizarre behavior. She was arrested for throwing a bong out her New York City apartment window in May 2013, blasted on the internet for lewd comments about rapper Drake, then was later placed on a 72-Hour mental hold and went to rehab after setting a woman’s driveway on fire near Los Angeles.

Her parents had a conservatorship which ended earlier this month and a TMZ source says, “Things started going haywire.”
