Many were surprised when Amanda Bynes was busted for DUI last week, now her dad says there's a logical explanation -- it was the cop's fault.

"She was not drunk," papa Rick Bynes tells People. "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."

According to the doting dad, reports that she sideswiped a a police cruiser were out of whack. He claims the officer was at fault for pulling out in front of the 26-year-old actress while she was making a turn. He went on to say she was arrested because she was "she was upset and very emotional."

Her dad adds: "She is a good girl. She just chooses not to work, and because of that, people go after her."

The last she was spotted, Amanda was jetting out of the West Hollywood Police Station after posting bail.

    He reminds me of Dina Lohan. He's enabling by being in denial and making excuses. I see her on the path of Lindsay, Paris, etc.

    First of all, I don't even know who she is. Secondly, she should not be on the road driving drunk. My son, my only child was killed by a stupid drunk driver. So, she deserves the max. Probably won't get it though, cause she is a "celebrity" and they have different sets of laws for those pukes!

    i believe the dads story. If she really blew a zero than she was falsely accused.

    It's really hard to believe that.. I mean, she's 26 years old, and is old enough to drink.. i think she possibly was drunk and did drive under the influence but then again, cops can be rude and full of themselves, and would just want to be noticed by taking a celebrity to jail.. Why not just let her off the hook like every other celeb? Say Lindsay Lohan, Paris Hilton, etc... and they WERE drunk/high/etc...
