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.
