Troubled actress Amanda Bynes was arrested at her New York apartment on Thursday after police claim that she tried to destroy evidence of her drug use.
Officers were called to the former child star’s midtown apartment Thursday after the doorman at her building called to report that she was smoking marijuana in the lobby, acting erratically and talking to herself. When the officers arrived, she returned to her 36th floor apartment, according to NBC New York.
Officers entered her apartment, which reportedly reeked of marijuana, and they saw a bong inside after Bynes, 26, opened the door for them. She allegedly then grabbed the smoking device and tossed it out of the window. She was arrested on charges of reckless endangerment, felony tampering with evidence and criminal possession of marijuana.
TMZ reported that Bynes, who was wearing a platinum blonde wig at the time of her arrest, got agitated and yelled, “Don’t you know who I am?”
Before being booked, Bynes was taken to Roosevelt Hospital to undergo a psychiatric evaluation and is expected to appear in court on Friday. Bynes pleaded no contest in California two weeks ago to driving on a suspended license and was sentenced to three years summary probation and still has a DUI charge pending in Beverly Hills.
It has been a rough year so far for former Nickelodeon star Bynes, who has raised eyebrows with a series of nude photos, sexual online flirting with rapper Drake and a Twitter war with former Playboy Playmate and VH1 star Jenny McCarthy.
