Amanda Bynes Sexual Harassment Claim Against Cops Denied
Despite Amanda Bynes' claims that she was inappropriately touched during her arrest on Thursday on drug charges, an internal investigation by the New York Police Department found no evidence of such behavior.
The troubled former Nickelodeon star was [article id="1708032"]arrested[/article] for allegedly throwing bong out of her 36th-floor apartment window following reports that she was smoking marijuana in the lobby of her building. Two days later, Bynes, 27, threatened to file a lawsuit against the NYPD for what she claimed was sexual harassment by one of the officers.
"NYPD Internal Affairs investigators have found no evidence to corroborate Ms. Bynes' allegations," read a statement issued by the NYPD on Tuesday. "To the contrary, a credible civilian witness who was with the officers throughout told investigators that none touched Ms. Bynes inappropriately or otherwise engaged in misconduct at any time."
The allegations were part of a weekend [article id="1708056"]flurry of bizarre activity[/article] from Bynes, who also claimed she was getting a nose job and preparing to launch her rap career. Bynes was arrested on charges of reckless endangerment, tampering with evidence and criminal possession of marijuana.
She responded to the news of the internal affairs investigation findings with yet another lengthy tweet, in which she said her drug case was being dropped and took a shot at the arresting officer she'd accused of unwanted touching.
"My lawyer is getting my case dropped!," Bynes claimed "There was no proof of sexual harassment or drugs. Instead of me asking for the cop to be arrested for sexual harassment, I want my case dropped as well. His punishment will be being the cop who sexually harassed someone who would never find him handsome enough to be my boyfriend. That's worse than any time in jail. But I am suing him for money compensation. I love having more money in my bank!" MTV News was unable to reach the attorney who represented Bynes in court on Friday at press time.
The actress, who was released on her own recognizance on Friday, is due back in court on July 9.
