Amanda Bynes' Dad Blames Daughter's Accident On Cop

The rest of the world might have been shocked by Amanda Bynes’ DUI arrest, but apparently, the actress’ father had a noticeably different reaction. Rick Bynes went on the offensive today, defending his daughter and claiming she wasn’t even intoxicated at the time of the arrest. He knows because she never drinks.
The former All That star was booked over the weekend after she ran into a police officer’s vehicle at 3 AM. Following an interview, Bynes was taken to a West Hollywood jail and booked on suspicion of driving under the influence. According to her father however, he was told she actually blew a .00 on the breathalyzer but was taken to jail simply because she was “very emotional”. Speaking to People Magazine, the agitated dad further argued his daughter wasn’t even responsible for the accident. He thinks the officer pulled in front of the actress while she was about to turn.
I’ve heard some people argue that Bynes is simply trying to cover for his daughter, but I’m fairly confident this is exactly what he thinks. Thus, there are two possible scenarios in play here. Either Bynes really wasn’t intoxicated, was taken to jail for being too “emotional” and was held overnight because she fell asleep or poor Rick Bynes is simply unaware of his daughter’s behavior. For his sake and hers, let’s hope it’s the former.
More than likely the truth will come out at some point. When it does, we’ll make sure to keep you updated.
