Amanda Bynes

Busted for Pot Possession

And FELONY Bong Tossing

Exclusive Details

amanda_launchAmanda Bynes was arrested in her NYC apartment Thursday night for marijuana possession and throwing evidence out the window ... TMZ has learned.

According to law enforcement sources ... a building official called police after spotting Amanda in the lobby with a joint, acting erratically and talking to herself.  We're told when cops arrived they knocked at her door and she let them in. 

Our sources say when police saw the bong Amanda quickly tossed it out the window ... which fortunately didn't hit anyone on the street below.

Amanda, who was wearing a platinum blonde wig, was placed under arrest and went ballistic, yelling, "Don't you know who I am?"

She was booked for criminal possession of pot, as well as reckless endangerment and FELONY tampering with evidence.

Our law enforcement sources say Amanda was briefly taken to a hospital for psychiatric evaluation and then taken to the station for booking. 

But the cop shop wasn't the last stop.  A cuffed Amanda was then taken to night court just before midnight.  She's still there in a holding cell, waiting for a judge.  She should get a hearing sometime this AM.

Amanda's behavior has become increasingly bizarre over the past year -- with numerous arrests, a complete physical transformation and crazy tweets.

How did they conjure up a felony from a simple marijuana possession? I know she discarded the bong but really....

So she thinks, like Reese Witherspoon, the cops will let you off if you are famous?

That's so pathetic, arresting someone in their own home for something that's legal in so many states, I can't keep up and should be legal everywhere. I would much rather you arrest fat diabetics or martini drinkers

Pot is legal in the privacy of your own home up to a certain amount. This makes no sense. The law was recently changed and made more lenient too. This is weird.
