Despite Amanda Bynes’ previous insistence that she would sue anyone that spoke negatively about her in the press, she’ll have trouble getting around the fact that she was arrested on Thursday after police claim she tried to destroy evidence of her drug use.
It all started on Thursday when her NYC apartment building’s doorman called police to report Bynes was smoking marijuana in the lobby, (Hey Bynes, think you’re entitled much?), acting erratically and talking to herself. Officers arrived and Bynes reportedly made haste to get up to her pad on the 36th floor as fast as the elevator could take her.
Officers entered her apartment, (Bynes willingly opened the door) which reportedly stank to high heaven of Mary Jane, and saw a bong inside. Bynes, allegedly then grabbed the bong and threw it out of the window – which could have been a a real bummer if you were on the ground level receiving end of a flying pipe. (Further evidence that drugs can kill – even if you’re not doing them!)
Police arrested 26 year old Bynes on charges of reckless endangerment, felony tampering with evidence and criminal possession of marijuana.
Depending on your perspective, the story gets better… or worse. TMZ reports Bynes pulled a Reese Witherspoon and got irritated, yelling “Don’t you know who I am?” Maybe she WAS channeling Witherspoon, because she actually was wearing a blonde wig at the time. For real… that’s what the report says.
Bynes was taken to Roosevelt Hospital to undergo a psychiatric evaluation and is expected to appear in court on Friday May 24th.
