April 6: Amanda Bynes arrested for DUI
The 26-year-old actress' legal troubles in 2012 started just three days after her birthday, when she was arrested for driving under the influence after sideswiping a stopped police car in West Hollywood at 3 a.m. But it didn't end there. Bynes was charged with hit-and-run related to leaving the scene of two separate accidents, one on April 10 and another on Aug. 4, had her license suspended on Sept. 6, and then her car impounded on Sept. 16 after driving with a suspended license. On Sept. 27, Bynes pleaded not guilty to two charges of hit-and-run.
