DUI Suspect Amanda Bynes Pleads With President Obama: 'Fire the Cop Who Arrested Me'
We're not quite sure the White House has the authority to intervene on Hollywood DUI matters.
But that hasn't stopped troubled actress Amanda Bynes from issuing a Twitter plea to President @BarackObama to "fire the cop" who arrested her for a drunk driving on April 6 -- an incident where she allegedly sideswiped a sheriff's patrol car in West Hollywood, Calif.
The bizarre Tweet came moments after Los Angeles prosecutors announced they'd charged actress Bynes with driving under the influence.
The 26-year-old will be arraigned Wednesday morning in Beverly Hills but doesn’t have to attend the hearing. Instead, she will have a lawyer enter a plea of not guilty.
So who do you turn to in such a time of need. The Commander in Chief, of course:
Hey @BarackObama... I don't drink. Please fire the cop who arrested me. I also don't hit and run. The end.

The misdemeanor complaint filed in court Tuesday alleged Bynes refused to take a test at the time that could’ve determined whether she was drunk or under the influence of drugs.
She faces a suspended driver’s license for a year.
Since that incident, Bynes -- who starred in the Nickelodeon series What I Like About You and the film Easy A -- hasn't exactly stayed out of trouble.
She was allegedly being investigated for involvement in another hit-and-run on April 10 and was later accused of texting and driving after leaving Hollywood nightclub Greystone Manor, though she was never ticketed.
Of that media report and her alleged crimes, Bynes tweeted:
"I cant help but laugh at all of you writing fake stories about me. I was not in any hit and runs. I don’t drink so the DUI is false."No word yet whether Obama will be dispatching one of his surrogates or if he will attend Bynes' hearing himself.
