UPDATE: In a series of exclamation mark-ridden tweets this weekend, Amanda Bynes vehemently denied allegations involving her arrest following an incident during which police say the former child star threw a bong out of her window.

Bynes initially denied ever drinking or doing drugs, and tweeted that seeing her mugshot caused her to realize she needs a second nose job, as well as “Nicki Minaj’s wig person stat!”

 

 

 

In a long tweet, Bynes referred to her arresting officers as “creepy” and said one of the arresting officers sexually harassed her the night before. “He slapped my vagina,” she tweeted.

Bynes later slammed an E! Online story as false, insisting that the alleged bong was in fact a vase, and tweeting “E isn’t run by beauty queens like me!”

 

Metro’s original story is below.

Actress Amanda Bynes was arrested inside her Manhattan apartment Thursday night after police observed her throwing a bong out of her window.

Police were called to the scene when the building’s superintendent called cops and reported that Bynes was “rolling a marijuana cigarette” in the lobby of the West 47th Street building. The super told cops that Bynes lit the joint in the lobby.

When cops arrived at Bynes’ apartment, the smell of pot was emanating from Bynes’ apartment, the criminal complaint said, and the when Bynes opened the door, the uniformed officer noticed the bong on her kitchen counter.

When the cop asked Bynes about the bong, she reportedly ran and threw it out of her 36th floor window, the complaint reads. It did not hit anyone.

In the criminal complaint, the arresting officer noted that there were “numerous pedestrians” walking along the streets below the window, on 8th Avenue and West 47th Street. The complaint also noted that police did not recover the bong or anything else from either sidewalk.

The 27-year-old former Nickelodeon star was taken to Roosevelt Hospital for psychiatric evaluation before being taken to the Midtown North Precinct House to be processed. She faces charges of tampering with evidence, marijuana possession and reckless endangerment.

Bynes was also arrested last year for DUI and is currently under probation for driving with a suspended license. She has been under the tabloid spotlight in recent months for posting bizarre pictures of herself on Twitter.
