Amanda Bynes Arrest:
NYPD Says She Was Not
Amanda Bynes may have claimed that she was sexually assaulted by the NYPD when she was arrested on Thursday night — but the authorities are saying otherwise.
“Internal Affairs investigators have found no evidence to corroborate Ms. Bynes’ allegations,” the NYPD said in a statement. “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.”
After her court appearance on Friday, the actress took to — you guessed it — Twitter to claim that police violated her.
“Don't believe the reports about me being arrested. It's all lies,” the 27-year-old tweeted. “I was sexually harassed by one of the cops the night before last which is who then arrested me. He lied and said I threw a bong out the window when I opened the window for fresh air. Hilarious. He slapped my vagina. Sexual harassment. Big deal. I then called the cops on him. He handcuffed me, which I resisted, quite unlike any of the reports stated. Then I was sent to a mental hospital. Offensive. I kept asking for my lawyer but they wouldn't let me. The cops were creepy. The cop sexually harassed me, they found no pot on me or bong outside my window. That's why the judge let me go. Don't believe any reports.”
As In Touch exclusively reported, Amanda called 911 on herself saying cops were going to assault her.
The former child star was arrested on Thursday after she allegedly threw the drug paraphernalia out of her 36th floor apartment in NYC. She has been charged with reckless endangerment, attempted evidence tampering and possession of marijuana before being taken to Roosevelt Hospital for a psychiatric evaluation.
Since being released on Friday, she has also claimed to be allergic to marijuana and alcohol on Twitter.
California lawyer Goldie Schon tells In Touch that since she was already on three years’ probation in California after pleading no contest on May 9 to driving on a suspended license, her newest run-in with the law could mean trouble.
“It’s possible that Amanda has violated the terms of her probation,” Schon tells In Touch. “If the police determine that Amanda violated her probation, she could face up to six months in jail and a $1,000 fine.”
Amanda is due back in court on July 9.
