Amanda Bynes was arrested early Sunday morning for a DUI, PEOPLE confirms with the California Highway Patrol.

Bynes, 28, was taken into custody at 3 a.m. after police stopped her on suspicion of driving under the influence of a controlled substance outside of Los Angeles, according to E! News. The actress ran a red light at an intersection, only to make a complete stop in the middle of the same intersection, Officer Leland Tang of the California Highway Patrol tells PEOPLE. She was charged with a misdemeanor, held on $15,000 bail and released later on Sunday.

The actress was first arrested for DUI in 2012, but she avoided jail time by completing inpatient treatment in December. She was placed on three years’ probation.

It seemed the former child star was getting her life back together after a series of legal troubles and bizarre behavior: She regained her driver’s license in April and was living with her parents while taking fashion design classes.
