Well that didn’t take long. Just hours after she appeared in a New York City criminal court charged with marijuana possession, Amanda Bynes returned to Twitter with a message for her one million followers.
“I only smoke tobacco I don’t drink or do drugs. I’ve never had a bong in my life! I need to get another nose job after seeing my mugshot! :D” she wrote.
The former actress was arrested at her West 47th Street apartment on Thursday night after a doorman called police to complain that the 27-year-old actress was smoking a joint in the building’s lobby.
When police arrived at her apartment, they allegedly found it filled with heavy smoke and drug paraphernalia. The officers then claim that Amanda threw a foot-high bong out of the window and they handcuffed and arrested her for reckless endangerment, attempted evidence tampering and possession of marijuana before taking the Easy A star to Roosevelt Hospital for a psychiatric evaluation.
Amanda was held in jail overnight and appeared in court on Friday morning wearing an ill-fitting wig (her mug shot showed that the troubled star has short-cropped hair). Standing before the judge, Amanda insisted that the bong the police said she threw out the window was “just a vase.” Amanda was released without bail but warned that she would be arrested if she missed her court date on July 9.
As In Touch reported in this week’s issue, the star’s behavior has become more erratic than ever following months of increasingly bizarre antics, including reports that the star was seen smoking pantless in in a hotel gym and walked around naked in a tanning salon.
A photographer who recently partied at Amanda's pad tells the mag — on newsstands now — that there was no shortage of pot in her home. “Weed was everywhere,” he tells In Touch. “On the bed, all over the floor."
