Amanda Bynes' father is not just standing by his daughter in the aftermath of her DUI arrest on Friday. He says she absolutely was not drunk that night.
"She was not drunk," Rick Bynes told People. "I'm told she blew a zero on the Breathalyzer. She didn't have a single drink. My daughter doesn't drink."
The elder Bynes claims the the cop who arrested Amanda Bynes was at fault for pulling out in front of the actress as she was turning at an intersection.
While she was arrested for DUI after side-swiping the cop, Rick adamantly says his daughter was not impaired, just extremely "upset and very emotional."
Adding that she was released with no bail, Rick went on to say, "Amanda is a good girl. She just chooses not to work, and because of that, people go after her."
That's ... an interesting theory we hadn't considered.
What we know is that Bynes was at L.A.'s Greystone Manor Supperclub Thursday night. She was cited for investigation of DUI around 3 a.m. Friday, then held overnight at the West Hollywood Sheriff's department's station post-arrest.
She and some friends reportedly went back to that same bar the next night - just hours after her release from jail - only to be turned away by the staff.
While authorities would not comment on the star's specific case, Bynes was released with the citation and will have to show up in court when a date is set.
