Amanda Bynes Arrested For Weed, Taken to Hospital

    May 24, 2013

Former child actress and Nickelodeon star Amanda Bynes has been arrested on marijuana-related charges.

According to an Associated Press report, Bynes was arrested in her Manhattan apartment on Thursday evening on charges of reckless endangerment, tampering with evidence, and possession of marijuana. The actress was reportedly smoking marijuana in the lobby of her building when the doorman called police. Bynes retreated to her apartment when police arrived, where she allegedly threw a bong out of a window.

New York’s NBC 4 is also reporting that police took Bynes to Roosevelt Hospital to undergo psychiatric evaluation before taking her in for processing. She is expected to appear in court on Friday. Bynes is currently on probation for driving on a suspended license.

Since last year, Bynes has been exhibiting bizarre behavior, starting with a string of driving-related arrests that included a hit-and-run incident involving a police officer’s car. After losing her driver’s license, the actress moved to New York City and began using her Twitter account to chronicle strange experiments with makeup and nudity. Just this week, Bynes threatened to sue InTouch magazine for publishing photos of her with what appears to be drugs in her apartment.
