Amanda Bynes has jacked up her headline-grabbing antics to a whole new level.

In photos taken at the scene, the 26-year-old could be seen lowering her head as her long blond hair covered her face. Her hands were handcuffed as she stepped out in a long-sleeved black Versace shirt, gray sweatpants and high-tops.

A source confirms to E! News that Bynes' legs were also shackled as she was taken to Manhattan Central Booking.

Shortly before 8 p.m. Thursday, police responded to a call from Bynes' doorman that the star had allegedly been smoking pot in the lobby. When cops arrived, Bynes had already returned to her apartment.

After reaching the actress at her apartment, police reportedly saw a bong when Bynes opened the door, and she purportedly went on to throw it out the window.

Bynes has been charged with reckless endangerment, tampering with evidence and criminal possession of marijuana. She is expected to appear in front of a judge Friday morning.
