Bynes arrested

Authorities say actress Amanda Bynes was arrested Friday on suspicion of driving under the influence after she grazed a sheriff’s patrol car. The 26-year-old actress was arrested at about 3 a.m. in West Hollywood. The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department says that Bynes attempted to pass a patrol car making a right turn when she hit it. Deputies say there was paint damage to both cars, but no one was injured. (AP)

Lauer OK with ‘Today’

Matt Lauer is sticking with NBC’s “Today,’’ ending speculation that the top-rated show might have to face ABC’s rising “Good Morning America’’ without him. Lauer has signed a long-term contract to remain as cohost of the No. 1 morning show, a long-anticipated deal that NBC announced Thursday night but Lauer made public on “Today’’ Friday. Lauer’s decision puts to rest suggestions that he might reunite with his former cohost Katie Couric on the syndicated show she’s launching this fall. “Today’’ has remained No. 1 in the weekly ratings since 1995.
