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.

This makes me so sad. My kids, who are now in there 20's, used to watch Amanda on her own show on Nickelodeon. She was cute and funny and the show was wholesome. She looks so sad in her mug shot picture. I loathe that the paparazzi is harassing her when she is at such a low point in her life. Someone needs to help her. Where are her people? Where is her mother? I usually don't even comment on this stuff. I hope she doesn't wind up dead.

I hope what ever is going on with Amanda this is the chance for her to really be with people who will help her. I pray her parents step in and completely do whatever it takes to help her and focus on this moment to move her forward to be better. She has always been a good kid and brought much joy and laughter to our family all these years. We Love her.

People still get arrested for pot in NYC? That seems so primitive and barbaric.

Poor girl has mental issues and drug problems. The New York judge should be fined for not putting her in mandatory rehab. She's been in numerous car accidents, was caught with illegal drugs, displayed very abnormal behavior and threw an illegal bong from a 36 story building which could have injured someone.

I feel bad for this young lady. She needs help and needs to check into rehab and have some mental health care. Where are her friends family or agents why doesn't someone help her or commit her. She deserves some sympathy and help!

Why hasn't anyone tried to find out what's happening with this little girl? Her erratic behavior is getting worse and worse. There's obviously a conflict and no one's helping her get to the bottom of it. How could her friends let things get this bad?

Really, way over the top! To the NYC PD: Please leave Amanda Byne's alone - There are much more
important "crime's" to follow through with and Amanda
Byne's does not qualify as a real criminal -

She doesn't look like the wacko type.., but oh well. The thing I find hilarious is the article say's, "she was booked for criminal possession of pot".., lol how dramatic TMZ. It was probably the equivalent of a nickel bag. lol

This is infinitely more important, more vital, than the idea of Citicorp lobbyists writing legislation for Congress.
