‘Lauren’s Lowdown’: Amanda Bynes Arrested…AGAIN; Michael Phelps Arrested For DUI


Sadly, Amanda Bynes just can’t seem to stay out of trouble…on Sunday, Sept. 28, she was arrested for driving under the influence.

According to California Highway Patrol officer Leland Tang, Bynes was pulled over at around 3:30 a.m. on Sunday morning. After she failed a field sobriety test, she was taken to the LAPD Van Nuys station, where she was given an evaluation. Police “determined she was under the influence of a drug” and charged her with DUI. TMZ reports she was held on $15,000 bail, which she later posted.

US Weekly reports that 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.

“Amanda currently is on zero medication,” attorney Tamar Arminak said in a statement to Us Weekly last April. “She’s devoted to living her life as healthy as possible. Her family is closely involved with her day-to-day life, but they try to give her as much autonomy as possible.”


Looks like Amanda Bynes isn’t the only one getting arrested for a DUI this week…Michael Phelps just got a DUI too!

According to TMZ, he was pulled over around 1:40 AM in Baltimore in his white Land Rover and his field sobriety test. Allegedly his blood alcohol level was almost twice the legal limit.

Officials just issued a statement saying Phelps was initially pulled over for going 84 in a 45, and during the stop the officer noticed he was hammered. Sources say Phelps was hauled to a nearby station where he was booked for DUI — and was eventually released.

Cops say Phelps was charged with DUI, excessive speeding and crossing double lane lines.

It’s Michael’s 2nd DUI arrest — he was popped in Maryland in 2004 when he was 19 years old. He struck a plea deal with prosecutors and pled guilty in exchange for 18 months probation.


Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi gave birth to new daughter Giovanna Marie LaValle, on Monday, Sept 29!

The mom of two was snapped arriving at her home looking happy to be back and was greeted by her 2-year-old son Lorenzo. In the front yard was a stork cut-out which adorably read: “9.26.14 Giovanna Marie 6 lbs. 7 oz. 19 in.”


Lorde released a song for the “The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1”, soundtrack yesterday called “Yellow Flicker Beat”.  She says, “It’s my first offering from what I hope will be a soundtrack you love.”
