Amanda Bynes has hit rough road yet again.The 28-year-old actress was arrested on a DUI charge early Sunday morning in Sherman Oaks, California, Officer Juan Galvan with the California Highway Patrol confirmed to CNN.
CHP officers said they observed Bynes driving her white Mercedes Benz SUV west on Riverside Drive, where she stopped for a red light in the middle of an intersection.
Bynes immediately pulled over for the highway patrol and according to police failed to pass a series of field sobriety tests. Officers transported her to the West Valley CHP office for evaluation by a drug recognition expert.
Bynes was then arrested for allegedly driving under the influence of a drug and booked at the Los Angeles Police Department's Van Nuys Jail shortly after 7 a.m.
The CHP arrest report notes Bynes' "disheveled appearance," but indicates she was cooperative throughout the entire arrest process.

When Ashley Gabrielle Huff was pulled over by a police officer in Gainesville, Ga., on July 2 for a tag light violation, the officer immediately became suspicious of her appearance and demeanor. After finding a spoon in her car with residue on it (and supposedly field-testing it), the officer was convinced it was methamphetamine and arrested Huff, 23, hauling her off to Hall County Jail. She was released at one point, then reincarcerated. Unable to pay her bail, she languished there until Sept. 18—when lab tests came back and proved it was SpaghettiOs sauce, not meth, on the spoon, the Gainesville Times reports.
A police report cited by the Times noted that Huff, 23, seemed "nervous" to the officer who made the traffic stop and that her body was covered in sores. After reportedly getting permission from Huff to search her car, the officer found a bag with a spoon inside, coated with a "clear, crystal-like substance"; he says he also did a field test that showed a "positive indication" for meth. Huff told the officer that it was just SpaghettiOs sauce, but he wasn't buying it. She explains to the Times that she ate straight out of the can and then tossed the can but "threw the spoon in my purse because I had borrowed it from a friend." Now Huff, who says she lost her Waffle House job and missed her kids' birthdays while incarcerated, says she's seeking legal counsel. The police say they were simply "acting in good faith," KRON4 reports.
"Oh, that’s a rumor all right!" said Jeremy Renner when The Daily Beast asked about Hawkeye appearing in Captain America 3. "I don’t know what’s going to happen. I know it’s going to start shooting in March. I haven’t had any official conversations about doing it or not." Sure you haven't Jeremy... When asked if he has wrapped filming for Avengers: Age of Ultron, the two-time Oscar-nominee replied, "We have to do some pick-up shots here and there, but for the most part. Hulk has a more prominent role, and I have a more prominent role. There are a lot more scenes of the entire Avengers gang together—both in and out of the cape, so to speak. It’s making me become a total fanboy. It’s pretty fun to be a part of." About his muli-picture deal with Marvel Studios, Jeremy Renner said, "I think most actors will sign on to do, like… Captain America 1-3 and then The Avengers 1-3, and then you’re done. For me, I signed on to The Avengers 1-3 and then Hawk-Eye, in case they want to do a Hawk-Eye spin-off." Hmm.
In a separate interview with Starplus, Renner offered a bit more about returning as Hawkeye in Avengers: Age of Ultron next year. " It was fun to finally kind of discover who Clint Barton is a little bit," he said. "We have some good secrets revealed. I think everything that was great about the first Avengers, is exponentially expressed in this one. From the action, to the making fun of itself, and there's a lot more time spent with the Avengers together, after being so separated in the first one. We've got some great new goodies, and some good baddies." The actor was then asked about Guardians of the Galaxy, which he describes "tremendous," and whether or not he would like to see those space misfits crossover with Earth's mightiest heroes. "That would be awesome," he replied. "I think that would be awesome. Of course that's the hopes with the puppeteers behind Marvel, but we'll see, man. We'll see..." Comicbookmovie.com
Amber Rose has filed for divorce from husband-of-1-year Wiz Khalifa ... and she's gunning for full custody of their kid ... TMZ has learned.
In the divorce docs -- obtained by TMZ -- Amber says they split on Monday and cites irreconcilable differences.
Amber is asking for full legal and physical custody of their 1-year-old son Sebastian. She's willing to give Wiz visitation.
And this is interesting. Amber acknowledges there's a prenup, which you would think would work in Wiz's favor, but she says it's valid ... presumably, she's not challenging it. The docs say the prenup provides spousal support.
As for why they split, there's been a buzz over the last few days of infidelity, but there's no mention of it in the papers.
We got video (below) of Amber with some guy Tuesday in Bev Hills. Our photog asks her if Wiz is keeping a close eye on Nick Cannon -- there are rumors they've hooked up, but she's mum.
Sources connected with the couple say the split is bitter.
SAN FRANCISCO -- Apple is denying a published report that it plans to shut down streaming service Music Beats.
Several prominent employees at Apple and Beats told TechCrunch that Apple planned to discontinue the service.
Apple spokesman Tom Neumayr denied Apple was shutting down Beats Music. He told USA TODAY: "It's not true."
One person familiar with the situation said that consumers should expect Apple to make some changes to the service. That could mean the brand is going away although the service is not.
Apple bought the service started by Jimmy Iovine and Dr. Dre in May for $3 billion.
Beats headphones are enormously popular especially with young people, but the music service at the time it was purchased only had a few hundred thousand subscribers. USA Today
