Amanda Bynes

Busted for Pot Possession

And FELONY Bong Tossing

5/24/2013 12:01 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
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.

yessterday they had another story on Trayvon Martin and was bringing up his drug use. Of course the godless liberals from hell were in there in force saying SO WHAT,WHAT DIFFERENCE DID I MAKE IN HIS PERSONALITY THAT HE SMOKED A LITTLE??? This is a perfect example right here you stupid moronic individuals, and in a kid that is already creating problems for himself and others, fighting, kicked out of school, rebellious, on face book talking about killing someone, YEA fools it makes a big difference, but then Liberals are too stupid to understand this.

This girl doesn't need to be made fun of or criticized. She needs a thorough mental/drug evaluation and some help with how to go through that process and become productive again.

The issue here is not really drugs, laws, too harsh, too lenient. The issue is this young lady(?) is in serious trouble and needs help. if it takes law enforcement for that to happen so be it. I wish her the best in an asylum or rehab or wherever she ends up.

This kid had a sweet show for middle/high school kids about six years or so ago. It was llike a variety show and there has been nothing like it since. She always seems so alone now. I believe this girl has talent and needs to be a kid for awhile.

Amanda was a decent actress... at least she isn't steeling or whoring around... Pot will be legal eventually... just be patient

She looks like a crackhead and probably is one.

It is absolutely admirable, how everything was done, in this case, to make a simple situation of obviously high human suffering into a shrill little development. Amanda was evidently not feeling well, and acting so coldly, mechanically, and in this remote manner was only going to make it worse. Amanda has not killed someone, for Pete's Sake! Can we have enlightened and compassionate reactions, please, instead of acting like dumb pieces of ice???

Celebrities (especially obscure ones) are always shown to be "examples," good and bad. They are supposed to make us think there is some equity to the law as it stands. But all they are is cookie cut outs so that the real moneyed elites can get away with what they like.

Poor thing. She needs some serious & true help. Perhaps she is undiagnosed, or at least un-medicated bipolar. It seems as though the police are overreacting for a simple pot violation. Perhaps the odd behavior had more to do with it. People simply do not do all of those things when just smoking herb.
