Amanda Bynes, Arrested


Amanda Bynes appears to have moved beyond lashing out via Twitter.

The 26-year-old starlet was arrested tonight in New York after allegedly throwing a bong out of her Midtown apartment window when police showed up in response to a call about a disorderly person in her building, the NYPD confirms to E! News.

She has been booked on charges of reckless endangerment, tampering with evidence and criminal possession of marijuana.

Bynes was first taken to Roosevelt Hospital to undergo a psychiatric evaluation before being transported to a Midtown station for processing.

Police tell E! that her building's doorman called 911 at around 7:42 p.m. to report that Bynes was smoking pot in the lobby. When officers arrived, Bynes had already gone back to her apartment. They followed and, when she opened the door, saw a bong, which she then allegedly threw out the window.

The officers noted smoke and the smell of marijuana in the apartment.

We're told that Bynes is being transferred to Manhattan Central Booking and will likely spend the night there before facing a judge in the morning.

Two weeks ago, Bynes pleaded no contest (via her attorney) in Burbank, Calif., to driving with a suspended license and was sentenced to three years' summary probation. A DUI charge is still pending in Beverly Hills.
