Beware citizens of Gotham, Amanda Bynes is among you.
Not long after firing off a bizarre tweetof side of her arrest story, Bynes was picked up by a car service this afternoon and driven out of her NYC apartment building.
Our photog was only able to spot Bynes for a brief moment before she jumped in the tinted SUV ... and says the former actress ditched her blonde wig for a black one.
According to our spies, Amanda hit up a wig shop in the West Village. We're told she tried on a few blonde ones, but ultimately decided against purchasing any when the commotion from all the paparazzi became too much for her.
It's not shocking Bynes went shopping for a new wig -- she tweeted last night, "I need Nicki Minaj's wig person stat! :P"
Amanda Bynes is now accusing the cop who arrested her Thursday night of sexual harassment ... saying on Twitter today, "He slapped my vagina."
Bynes just posted a long, rambling tweet trying to explain her version of the events that led to her arrest.
First off, she claims she only opened the window "for fresh air" and the cop was lying when he said she threw a bong out the window. She then explains, "He slapped my vagina. Sexual harassment. Big deal. I then called the cops on him."
Bynes' attorney did mention yesterday that Bynes was seeking to file a complaint against the NYPD for "inappropriate actions" by the department, but made no specific claims.
Back to the tweet ... Bynes claims she resisted before eventually being hauled off: "Then I was sent to a mental hospital. Offensive. I kept asking for my lawyer but they wouldn't let me."
She concludes, "The cop sexually harassed me, they found no pot on me or bong outside my window. That's why the judge let me go. Don't believe any reports."
Here's her tweet in its entirety, for your reading pleasure:
Don't believe the reports about me being arrested. It's all lies. I was sexually harassed by one of the cops the night before last which is who then arrested me. He lied and said I threw a bong out the window when I opened the window for fresh air. Hilarious. He slapped my vagina. Sexual harassment. Big deal. I then called the cops on him. He handcuffed me, which I resisted, quite unlike any of the reports stated. Then I was sent to a mental hospital. Offensive. I kept asking for my lawyer but they wouldn't let me. The cops were creepy. The cop sexually harassed me, they found no pot on me or bong outside my window. That's why the judge let me go. Don't believe any reports.
Amanda Bynes is not 5150 material, meaning she can't be picked up against her will and held for mental evaluation, at least not yet ... this according to multiple sources familiar with the situation.
Our sources tell us Amanda has not been diagnosed with any mental illness. Sources say her parents are worried there are signs she might be bipolar or schizophrenic, but Amanda has been unwilling to undergo psychiatric testing.
We're told her parents would like to create an involuntary conservatorship, similar to Britney Spears, but Amanda's conduct is not so over the line that a judge would take away her freedom.
Ditto for a 5150 psychiatric hold, which would allow authorities to put Amanda in a mental facility against her will for 72 hours for mental evaluation. We're told authorities just don't have the goods. In fact, Amanda was taken to a hospital after her arrest Thursday night and the shrinks didn't think an involuntary hold was warranted.
There's one other option to get a diagnosis. If Amanda is so out of it she can't understand the nature of the criminal cases that have been filed against her ... a judge can halt the proceedings and order a psychiatric evaluation. Amanda has been involved in 3 criminal cases in California recently, and there was NO effort to go this route. That's because she has always been lucid in court.
If you watch the video of Friday's court hearings, Amanda clearly understands what's going on and is actually sharp when answering the judge's questions.
Short story -- she has to act a lot crazier before authorities can take some of her freedom away and find out what's causing her bizarre conduct.
Comedian Chris Tucker is finally getting serious about paying off his enormous $12 million tax debt ... so much so the actor cut a check (okay, two checks) for almost $1 MILLION.
As TMZ first reported, the "Rush Hour" star is knee deep in tax problems. The IRS says he owes over $11.5 million in unpaid taxes from a slew of years. Plus, the state of Georgia says he owes $590,000 from 2007. All totaled, he owes over $12 million.
CT took the hint to cough up some cash and paid off the GA state tax lien ... PLUS another GA tax lien no one even knew he had. The breakdown:
1. $592,594.82 for 2007 -- PAID 2. $392,332.16 for 2006 -- PAID
All in all, "The Silver Linings" star dropped $985.028.98 chipping away at those pesky tax bills.
Frances Bean Cobain ended one war with Kendall Jenner, but then started another ... calling KJ a self-absorbed rich kid who complains about her problems on Twitter to get attention.
The war of words started earlier this week when Frances called Kendall a "f**king idiot" after Kendall complained on Twitter that she wished "things could be easier sometimes" -- Frances taking offense to someone as well off as Kendall complaining about life to total strangers.
Kendall responded rather eloquently, saying she was aware she is "very privileged and blessed" but asking, "who are u to judge me?"
Well it took Frances a few days to consider that question, and last night she apologized (sort of) by saying "I don't know you nor do I think ur a bad person" ... while also slamming Kendall again by writing, "Publicly complaining about how hard your life is is completely self serving ... I believe that venting about ones problems via the Internet is a blatant cry for attention. "
She also offered this piece of advice, which also served as another insult toward Kendall: "I try to deal w/ pain in a manner that pertains to my real life not in a way where strangers throw me a pity party."
San Antonio Spurs star Tony Parker was denied a table at a Memphis restaurant last night -- but the restaurant said it has nothing to do with the fact his team is playing their Grizzlies in the NBA playoffs.
Parker was turned away from the popular Restaurant Iris on Friday night, says the Houston Chronicle, because he did not have a reservation. Parker and the Spurs are in town to play the Griz tonight.
The incident quickly went viral in Memphis, prompting the restaurant to put up a statement on their website, saying in part, "Due to the size of our restaurant, there is currently a two week delay for a weekend reservation ... We would not cancel a reservation that a guest made -- and waited two weeks for -- in order to make room for someone else without a reservation -- celebrity or not."
They did add at the end, "We are proud to be a part of Grizz nation and are excited to cheer on our team tonight."
Seems like Zach Randolph would have gotten a table no problem.
Evander Holyfield should probably sign up for Uber STAT ... the cash-strapped boxing legend's about to have his driver's license suspended after blowing off more than $300k in child support payments, TMZ has learned.
We broke the story ... The GA Dept of Human Services has been trying to collect cash from Holyfield for months, after he was ordered to pay over $500,000 in child support for his daughter Emani Holyfield ... but E.H. continuously failed to do so.
Holyfield was even put on a payment plan to chip away at the debt ... paying $2,950 per month ... but according to court docs, he missed several payments and still owes $327,858.36.
Now, a Georgia judge has given the Division of Child Support Services the green light to strip Holyfield of his driver's license -- or start the process at least -- as an incentive to get him to pay up.
A hearing's set for August to check up on his progress. It's unclear how he plans to get to court.
Will Smith brought back the "Fresh Prince" theme song the last time he was on "The Graham Norton Show" -- so he decided to take it to a whole other level last night ... and brought back DJ Jazzy Jeff and Alfonso Ribeiro for an epic reunion.
With his son Jaden serving as hype man, Will once again resurrected the classic track, this time with Jazzy Jeff on the turntables. And when Alfonso came out to lead a Carlton Dance Party ... the whole place went crazy.
As for the final dance number ... Graham tried his best to keep up with the fellas, fellow guest Heather Graham rocked out from afar ... and Bradley Cooper just stood there and watched.
Nickelodeon is brainwashing your kids to think Italians are all bootlegging mafiosos and it MUST be stopped -- so says a pissed off Italian-American advocacy group, demanding parents BOYCOTT Nick's new flick.
The Italian-American One Voice Coalition -- a major national org. fighting against negative Italian-American stereotypes -- is peeved over the TV movie, "Nicky Deuce" ... set to bow on May 27th.
FYI :The flick is about a dorky Italian-American teenager who transforms himself into a mobster (to be cool, duh) ... just like his Italian-American uncle, who has mafia ties. Like "The Sopranos" with kids.
But One Voice tells TMZ ... this "trash television" is an affront to their culture, meant to "brainwash a new generation with an insidious and hurtful stereotype of Italian Americans."
"It is beyond reprehensible that Nickelodeon would so grossly abdicate any semblance of corporate responsibility and target young children with a biased, stereotypical movie."
They add, "We are appealing to all parents to not have their children watch this garbage."
Amanda Bynes' arrest has most people thinking she's totally losing it ... especially after her wigtastic court appearance! But is she really off the rails -- you've gotta hear the new info we uncovered. Plus, war on the Jersey shore ... Snooki and Governor Chris Christie went…
