A barely recognizable Amanda Bynes appeared in court Friday over allegations that she threw a marijuana bong out of her 36th-floor apartment window. She claims that she threw a “vase” and not a bong.
According to NY Daily News, Bynes was found by her building manager, Rudy Toro, smoking marijuana in the lobby of The Biltmore along West 47th Street. He then called the police, who confirmed that they detected marijuana upon entering Bynes’ pad. A police source was quoted, “It looks like she realized they saw it, so she took it and threw it out the window.”
Luckily, the flying bong did not hit anyone below, although police officers were unable to retrieve or find the bubbler.
Meanwhile, Bynes denied the accusation, saying police officers entered her room without giving her a reason. She also denied that she threw a bong out her window. She further aggravated the issue by calling 911 and filing a complaint with the Internal Affairs Bureau of NYPD, citing allegations that the cops were harassing her.
During the court proceedings, Bynes wore a platinum blonde wig, a black sweater and grey sweatpants. She was documented by various media outfits making faces and yelling at reporters.
Bynes was charged with criminal possession of marijuana, tampering with evidence, and reckless endangerment. Manhattan Criminal Court Judge Neil Ross release Bynes without bail, on the grounds that she appear in court in July.
