When officers first arrived to her apartment, they found it filled with heavy smoke and drug paraphernalia. To ditch some evidence, Amanda immediately threw the foot-high bong out of the window. Thankfully, no one was injured.
The aspiring fashion designer was arrested in her 47th street apartment around 7:50 p.m. on charges of reckless endangerment, tampering with evidence, and criminal possession of marijuana.
A photographer who recently shot Amanda told
that Amanda was never without drugs.
“She had at least a dozen hand rolled joints on her. She had them in her palm at one point in the backseat--she'll smoke one halfway, put it out. Then light a new one. Then re-light the other half. It’s so weird! But she is constantly smoking weed,” the freelance photographer told the mag.

"He goes out of his way to avoid her—he just doesn't want to get caught up in all her s**t," the buddy told

After her arrest, Amanda was taken to Roosevelt hospital for a psychiatric evaluation and is expected to appear before a judge this morning.
