Amanda Bynes “Was Not Drunk” During DUI, Says Painfully Unhelpful Dad

Hoo boy. While we appreciate that Amanda Bynes‘s dad would wants defend his daughter following her DUI arrest last week, there is a reason dads are required by law to wait in the minivan while picking you up from the dance. “She was not drunk,” Rick Bynes told People this afternoon. “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.” Four individual sentences, four sweet, increasingly naive claims, Papa Bynes.

If his daughter’s arrest for clipping a police cruiser while driving under the influence isn’t enough to convince her pops that Amanda consumes alcohol occasionally, news from TMZ that his offspring was denied entrance to the bar at the Standard Hotel following her arrest on Friday, after she was released on $5,000 bail, probably isn’t go to change his mind either. “She is a good girl,” Bynes insisted. “She just chooses not to work, and because of that, people go after her.” Well…we doubt officers pulled her over for refusing to film She’s The Man 2: Teenage Cross-Dressing Boogaloo. We probably would have, but that’s why we’re not allowed to be the police. Well, there are so many reasons, but that is definitely one of them.
