Amanda Bynes Pleads for President Obama to Fire Cop Who Arrested Her

The actress tweets at the President, asking him to help her out with her DUI charge

Amanda Bynes continues to insist she is innocent when it comes to drinking and driving.

The 26-year-old actress was officially charged on Tuesday for driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs. She then proceeded to take her case directly to President Obama himself via Twitter.

"I don't drink," the actress tweeted at Barack Obama's presidential campaign. "Please fire the cop who arrested me."

The misdemeanor charge filed on June 5 relates to Bynes' arrest on April 6, when she was pulled over for allegedly hitting a police car while making a right turn at around 3 a.m.

The criminal complaint against the Easy A actress also alleges that she refused to take a breathalyzer or drug test.

Since she's a first-time offender, Bynes faces a maximum penalty of 48 hours in jail, three years probation and a nine-month alcohol program if convicted. Longer term, she could also lose her driver's license for up to a year.

But Bynes has consistently maintained that she was not inebriated the night of her accident.

"I can't help but laugh at all of you writing fake stories about me. I was not in any hit and runs. I don't drink so the DUI is false," she twittered on May 27. Even her father spoke out in support of his daughter.

"She was not drunk," Rick Bynes told People three days after Amanda was arrested.

Regardless of whether Bynes actually was drunk, we're pretty sure President Obama (and his campaign) won't be intervening in her case anytime soon.
