A former Nickelodeon star had a misdemeanor charge filed against her Tuesday in connection with her April 6 arrest, People magazine reports.

Amanda Bynes was charged with driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs, the story says. The charge stems from an incident in which she reportedly sideswiped a police car while trying to drive past it, as previously reported.

Bynes, who starred in the TV shows "The Amanda Show" and "What I Like About You," reached out to President Obama and asked that the police officer who arrested her get fired, the story reports.

The 26-year-old actress tweeted to Obama’s presidential campaign, "I don’t drink. Please fire the cop who arrested me," according to the story.

The complaint alleges that Bynes refused to complete either a drug test or Breathalyzer test, the story notes.

As a first-time offender, a conviction would bring a maximum penalty of 48 hours of jail time, three years’ probation and a nine-month alcohol program, along with the possible loss of her driver’s license for a year, the report adds.
