Amanda Bynes is due back in a NYC court today for an appearance following her arrest in May for reckless endangerment and attempted tampering with physical evidence (after allegedly throwing a bong out of her apartment window) and unlawful possession of marijuana.
Well, she showed up wearing quite an eye-catching outfit. Rocking a blue wig, sweats and sneakers, the troubled star kept her eyes hidden underneath a big pair of sunglasses. This may not be the best outfit for the 27-year-old actress if she wants the judge to take her seriously. At least it's a step up from the matted blonde wig she wore during her last appearance [see below]!
When Amanda appeared in court on May 24, the morning after her arrest, the judge released her on her own recognizance but warned the troubled star that if she failed to return to court today, he was going to "set a significant bail."
Amanda spent last night complaining on Twitter about how her nose is broken and her face is bruised because she's in the middle of a series of plastic surgeries on her nose, which she claims she needs to fix webbing between her eyes that she calls "a birth defect."
Her friend, publicist Jonathan Jaxson (who called police to her NYC apartment on the night she was arrested because he claims Amanda was behaving erratically), claimed on Twitter yesterday that Amanda might try to use her surgical procedures as an excuse to get out of appearing in court today. He also Tweeted the following message to Amanda: "Your sick and hopefully the best thing in court tomorrow is that your put in a treatment facility."
Amanda is currently on probation for driving with a suspended license and has a pending DUI case from an arrest last year. The next hearing for that case is scheduled for July 18.
