Amanda Bynes' parents saw trouble on the horizon for their daughter, even though they legitimately felt she was doing a lot better these days.
Before Amanda Bynes was arrested for DUI early Sunday morning, Rick and Lynn Bynes believed she was in a good place under new circumstances.
A little over a year ago, after several brushes with law and many instances of downright bizarre behavior, the actress was involuntarily hospitalized.
Six months of intensive treatment followed, along with a conservatorship overseen by Rick and Lynn, whose California home she moved back into.
Bynes, 28, enrolled at the Irvine, Calif., location of the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising, and her folks believed she had been thriving there.
"They truly believed Amanda was doing well based on the first and second semesters' grades, which were stellar," says a source close to her parents.
