After complying with a judge's orders to stay out of trouble and attend six months of counseling, the 28-year-old actress is no longer in hot water for allegedly throwing a bong out of her NYC high-rise apartment in May 2013.
During the time of the incident, police responded to Bynes' apartment after getting a call about a disorderly person in the building. Bynes was arrested and charged with reckless endangerment, tampering with evidence and criminal possession of marijuana.
Bynes and her attorney Gerald Shargel accepted an adjournment in contemplation of dismissal back in January. "She's making progress and we're very pleased," Shargel said at the time. And after half a year of counseling, Bynes has successfully obeyed the judge's orders and the charges have been dropped.
In addition to the dropped bong-tossing charges, Bynes also recently got her driver's license back after it was suspended in August 2012 after she failed to show up for a number of court dates pertaining to unpaid tickets. Prior to the suspension, the Hairspray star was arrested for suspicion of DUI.
Meanwhile, Bynes has been continuously taking steps in the right direction following all her run-ins with the law and a six-month stay at a rehabilitation center outside L.A. She recently completed her first quarter at the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising in Orange County and also returned to Twitter looking happier and healthier than ever.
