Actress Amanda Bynes was arrested in her NYC, New York apartment Thursday night for marijuana possession and amid claims her throwing a bong out of a window in front of police officers.
According to the sources – Police were called to an apartment building in midtown Manhattan following a complaint that Bynes was smoking marijuana and rolling a joint in the building’s lobby. Officers told they went to her apartment – reported to be on the 36th floor – and saw heavy smoke and a bong, which Bynes then threw out the window in front of them.
The American actress and fashion designer said to police: “It was just a vase,” according to Manhattan assistant district attorney Chikaelo Ibeabuchi. “My client completely denies illegally throwing anything out of her window,” said Andrew Friedman, her attorney for the arraignment. However, the judge released the actress on her own recognizance and gave her a July 9 court date.
Bynes was arrested on charges of reckless endangerment, tampering with evidence, and criminal possession of marijuana. The 27-year-old rose to fame starring in All That on children’s network Nickelodeon and has also starred in several movies.
In 2012 year, the actress was charged with expressively driving on a suspended license following two other traffic offence court cases.
