Amanda Bynes arrested in New York

Amanda Bynes was arrested Thursday night after she allegedly tossed a bong out of her Manhattan apartment window, police said. She was formally charged with attempted evidence tampering, reckless endangerment and marijuana possession on Friday. The "What I Like About You" star was reported to police after an employee at her apartment alleged that she was smoking marijuana in the building's lobby, acting erratically and supposedly talking to herself, according to reports. An officer went to Bynes' apartment then saw a bong -- a water pipe commonly used for smoking marijuana -- on her kitchen counter and when he asked her about it, the actress heaved it out of her window, according to the criminal complaint obtained by TMZ. Bynes claimed that the alleged bong was "just a vase." She was eventually released without bail after appearing for her arraignment in a New York court on Friday morning. Her next court date was set for July 9 and the judge said that if she didn't appear a warrant would be put out for her arrest.
