Amanda Bynes admittedly consented to an interview with In Touch Weekly, whom she claims subsequently Photoshopped evidence of the drug den she’s been freely posting on Twitter this whole time. Moreover, she’s been walking around New York City smoking weed knowing the paparazzi can see because that’s a thing she’s doing now. And following the ITW photos, the NYPD actually arrested Bynes in her own home for her drug use. According to TMZ.com, ‘police found the weed when they responded to a call for a disorderly person at Bynes’ apartment building… police were called because the troubled actress was behaving erratically [and] doing things like talking to herself.’ Bynes reportedly flipped out when the police arrived. Kicking, screaming, otherwise resisting arrest and pulling the ‘Do you know who I am?’ card back out of the deck. She’s been arrested for criminal possession of marijuana, reckless endangerment and felony tampering with evidence for also throwing her bong out of her apartment window.
EDIT: Here’s video of Amanda Bynes immediately after being arrested.
EDIT: NBC New York also reports (via Love B Scott), Bynes was smoking weed in her building lobby so the doorman called the police. By the time police arrived, Bynes had returned to her apartment where there was weed paraphernalia all over the place. Also, she may FINALLY be getting the help she needs, ‘She was taken to Roosevelt Hospital to undergo a psychiatric evaluation, then to a Midtown police station to be processed, according to sources. She was expected to spend the night in Manhattan central booking and appear in court Friday.’
EDIT: Here’s video of Amanda Bynes arriving to court on Friday morning.
EDIT: Here’s video of Amanda Bynes in court Friday, then leaving court. She was later released without bail and ordered to return in July for her court date.
Finally, Bynes immediately went on Twitter to deny the charges and…
I only smoke tobacco I don’t drink or do drugs. I’ve never had a bong in my life! I need to get another nose job after seeing my mugshot!

Then a few hours later, she wrote whatever the hell this is supposed to be…
‘Don’t believe the reports about me being arrested. It’s all lies. I was sexually harassed by one of the cops the night before last which is who then arrested me. He lied and said I threw a bong out the window when I opened the window for fresh air. Hilarious. He slapped my vagina. Sexual harassment. Big deal. I then called the cops on him. He handcuffed me, which I resisted, quite unlike any of the reports stated. Then I was sent to a mental hospital. Offensive. I kept asking for my lawyer but they wouldn’t let me. The cops were creepy. The cop sexually harassed me, they found no pot on me or bong outside my window. That’s why the judge let me go. Don’t believe any reports.’ – Amanda Bynes on Twitter, May 25.
