Amanda Bynes, the blonde actress who was once a Nickelodeon channel darling, was arrested early Friday morning for sideswiping a car in Santa Monica.

The "Easy A" star didn't pick just any old vehicle to hit, her victim was a Santa Monica Police cruiser.

The Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department report states that Bynes attempted to pass the police vehicle as it prepared to make a right turn at around 3 a.m. in West Hollywood when her BMW struck with the right rear panel of the police cruiser, causing minor damage to both vehicles.

The 26-year-old's bail was set at just $5,000 but she is reportedly still in police custody.

Last month the "What A Girl Wants" actress was allegedly talking on her cell phone when she was pulled over by police when she reportedly bolted from authorities, according to TMZ. Bynes later returned to station to sign the ticket.
