Source told People: ‘This DUI was definitely just a serious lapse in judgment. She hit a wall personally and professionally [in 2008] ..I think she’s been a little lost since then.’ Amanda dated Doug Reinhardt in 2009 and was linked to Liam Hemsworth shortly afterward. Rick Bynes said that Amanda was held in jail because ‘she was upset and very emotional.’
Source said she seemed fine to drive when she left the Standard Hotel in West Hollywood where she is a regular and had dinner Thursday night before her arrest. She then went to Greystone Manor, and was arrested after leaving there. Adds the source: ‘Bynes tried to come back to party [at the Standard] only hours after she was released from her DUI arrest’ but she is no longer welcome at the hotel.
Dad: ‘She was not drunk. I was told that she blew a zero on the Breathalyzer. She didn’t have a single drink that night. My daughter doesn’t drink.. [She] was raised in the industry and came up in the industry, so she has kind of a twisted head space in terms of social groups. She just chooses not to work, and because of that people go after her.’
