Los Angeles – Former actress Amanda Bynes was arrested early Sunday morning on suspicion of driving while under the influence of a drug.

Bynes (28) was stopped by a California Highway Patrol officer after she stopped in the middle of an intersection in Los Angeles around 4am on Sunday.

The former child star was determined to be under the influence of an unidentified drug after being evaluated at a nearby police station, the highway patrol said.

Bynes, who has had a series of driving-related arrests, was reportedly cooperative but appeared dishevelled when she was taken into custody.

She was released hours later after posting $15 000 (about R170 000) bail. A phone message left for her criminal defence attorney, Richard Hutton, was not immediately returned.

The one-time actress remains on probation for a 2012 case filed after she clipped a Los Angeles County sheriff’s patrol car and was arrested for driving under the influence. Bynes pleaded no contest to alcohol-related reckless driving in February.

In June, a New York judge dismissed a criminal case filed after Bynes was accused of throwing a bong out of her 36th-floor apartment. The case was dismissed after Bynes complied with orders to receive counselling and stay out of trouble.

Last year, Bynes resolved a misdemeanour hit-and-run case in Los Angeles after entering a civil settlement with other drivers.

She received psychiatric treatment last year after authorities said she set a small fire in the driveway of a home in Thousand Oaks, California.

Bynes was 13 when she landed her own hit variety programme, The Amanda Show on Nickelodeon. She went on to star in the TV series What I Like About You and several movies, including What a Girl Wants, Hairspray and She’s the Man.

She has publicly stated that she has retired from acting. Her last film credit was 2010’s Easy A, which starred Emma Stone.
