It appears that Amanda Bynes' alleged marijuana meltdown in New York City last summer will not land her in jail, according to her attorney Gerald Shargel.
Shargel tells In Touch Weekly that he expects the actress’s infamous 'bong-tossing’ case to be resolved in court this Friday.
Back in May, NYPD officers were called to Amanda’s apartment building after reports of a disturbance. Bynes was later accused of throwing a glass bong out of her Midtown, Manhattan, high-rise apartment which allegedly contained evidence of pot. She was ultimately evicted from her luxury digs.
The former child star has since been hospitalized and later spent months in rehab following a separate arson incident in Thousand Oaks, CA, in which she set herself on fire in a residential driveway.
Amanda was released to her family shortly after Thanksgiving. During the holidays, she was spotted around their neighborhood shopping and walking around with her parents.
However, despite being ordered back to court in New York City, her attorney tells In Touch that his client will remain in California and is not expected to appear in court on Friday.
