Amanda Bynes
is back on the streets ... the judge released her on her own recognizance moments ago in NYC -- after she offered a hysterical excuse to cops for her alleged bong-tossing arrest.

According to cops, Amanda told them what she threw out the window last night was "just a vase." The official complaint was read in court.

Prosecutors requested Bynes be held in lieu of $1,000 bail. The judge instead chose to let her go without bail ... but gave her a stern warning that if she missed her court date in July an arrest warrant would be issued. 

Amanda was escorted out of court by an officer ... and left, on her own, in a taxicab.

9:30 AM PT --
Amanda has been formally charged with attempted evidence tampering, reckless endangerment and marijuana possession.

8:52 AM PT --
TMZ obtained the criminal complaint from the incident ... which says a man in Amanda's building told cops he witnessed the actress smoking a joint in the first floor lobby.

The report says an officer went to Amanda's room ... and saw a bong on the kitchen counter.

According to the report, the cop -- wearing a "full police uniform" -- asked Amanda about the bong ... and that's when the actress flipped out.

Here's the cop's narrative -- "I observed [Amanda] grab said bong, run to the westbound-facing window, and throw it out the window where numerous pedestrians were walking on the 8 Avenue and West 47 Street sidewalks below."

Bynes was immediately arrested for reckless endangerment, possession of weed and tampering with evidence.

Damn, that's every drug addicts golden rule... never ever ever ever invite police into your pad. Give them a minute, and they'll find crack dust on the floor.

Isn't she a millionaire. Why does it sound like she's living in an everyday apartment complex...

This is how people with mental illness wind up dead. They took her for a psych. eval. and they thought what? That she is completely normal?? She threw a glass bong out a window and could have injured someone, and they release her. She's on probation, how can you continue to break the law while on probation? Don't get any of it. If I were in her shoes I'd be looking at my cell mate and hatching a plan for the showers.

This freak is 10x worse than Britney and even more disheveled than Lindsay!! Absolute trainwreck! (At least the others retained some tiny speck of their prior attractiveness during their lows!) This one is just disgusting
