Former child  starAmanda Bynes appears to have suffered a setback in her recovery. The What I Like About You actress, 28, was arrested for driving under the influence on Sunday, Sept. 28, TMZ and other outlets reported Monday.

 

 

 

According to the website, Bynes was pulled over sometime on Sunday morning. Police charged her with DUI and held her on $15,000 bail, which she later posted.

 

 

The former Nickelodeon star had been on probation since February 2014, when she struck a plea deal in connection with a DUI charge from June 2012. Bynes agreed to three years’ probation, plus completion of an alcohol education course, in exchange for the charge against her being dismissed.

 

 

That ruling came after a period of intense turmoil for the current Fashion Institute student, who was admitted to a facility in Malibu last year following months of erratic behavior (amplified by her social media presence) and a string of run-ins with the law. She returned home in December and was said to be doing better.
