From celebrities to coaches to athletes, many still insist on setting a bad example when it comes to driving under the influence. The latest celebrity to be in the dock is former Nickelodeon star, Amanda Bynes. According to the California Highway Patrol, she was arrested for DUI in Los Angeles on Sunday after being pulled over around 4am for stopping her Mercedes SUV for a red light in the middle of an intersection. Bynes was taken into custody as she appeared to be under the influence and was held on a misdemeanor charge.
She has been screwing up for a while now. Is she trying to say she is an adult now?
Is this the bad girl Bynes?!
According to police reports, Bynes was taken to a Van Nuys station and booked for a DUI. She was later released on a $15,000 bond. Bynes was said to have cooperated with the authorities during the entire process. The star of The Amanda Show has appeared in several movies as well. This was 28 year old Bynes second DUI arrest. She was arrested in 2012 on a DUI charge and was sentenced to three years of probation after pleading no contest to an alcohol-related reckless driving charge in February 2014. She entered a rehab in 2013 and lived with her parents for a while.
After setting a small fire in the driveway of a Thousand Oaks home, she received psychiatric treatment. Her DUI attorney was not available to comment.
Drunk cross country coach endangers the life of student athletes
Dedra Kiser, a girls’ cross country coach from Spartanburg High, has been sent on administrative leave following a DUI charge. The coach was driving seven athletes to an invitation match in Charleston when she was pulled over for erratic driving. The South Carolina Highway Patrol had received several calls about a reckless driver following which a trooper pulled over Kiser’s car. He had sufficient grounds to believe she was driving and the influence.
Da’Rick Rogers is not doing himself any favors.
The coach was taken into custody and booked for DUI and reckless endangerment of children. The troopers notified the Charleston County Department of Social Services who in turn contacted the parents to pick up their children. The athletes remained with the Charleston Police Department until the parents picked them up safely. According to a statement released by District 7, the safety of the children is paramount. The students were fine and the parents were as understanding even though their girls were placed in a potentially harmful situation. The authorities termed the incident absolutely intolerable.
That coach should be looking at 5 years in prison for every child she put in danger.

Following the charges, he was released from the team on Monday by head coach Chuck Pagano.
Well, perhaps that is why was driving near a college. He was sure he was about to be cut from the NFL so he was wondering if he could return to college.
