Amanda Bynes' father, Rick Bynes, is defending his daughter's actions over the weekend, following the actress' DUI arrest.
"She was not drunk," Rick 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 a police report, the 26-year-old former Nickelodeon star "allegedly collided with the right rear quarter panel" of a marked police car at 3:00 a.m. Friday morning, and was subsequently arrested for DUI.
Rick tells the news source that he believes the cop was at fault in the accident for "pulling out in front of [Amanda] as she was turning at the West Hollywood intersection where she was cited."
According to Rick, the only thing Amanda was guilty of was being "upset and very emotional."
"She is a good girl," says Rick. "She just chooses not to work, and because of that, people go after her."
