The troubled actress was supposed to appear in court today for her DUI case stemming from her April 2012 arrest when she hit a police car with her BMW, but did not appear as scheduled.
Her attorney Richard Hutton tells E! News he made a technical request to the court today to raise doubts regarding Bynes’ mental capacity, claiming the 27-year-old star cannot fully comprehend the legal proceedings.
Hutton says the judge would then refer the case to the mental health court, although the case remains criminal in the interim.
