There is no evidence that actress Amanda Bynes was sexually harassed by cops when she was arrested for throwing a bong out of her apartment window last week, police said on Monday.

“Internal Affairs investigators have found no evidence to corroborate Ms. Bynes’ allegations,” NYPD spokesman Paul Browne told The New York Post. “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.”

The 27-year-old former child star still plans to sue the NYPD.

Metro’s original story is below.

Amanda Bynes is continuing to protest allegations that she threw a bong out of her window when confronted by uniformed officers on Thursday, and insists that she is suing the NYPD for alleged sexual harassment.

According to the criminal complaint, officers asked her about a bong on her kitchen counter, and arrested her after she threw it out of a window. She was taken for a psychiatric evaluation before being processed at a nearby precinct and charged with reckless endangerment, criminal possession of marijuana, and tampering with evidence.

After initially taking to Twitter to accuse an arresting officer of sexually assaulting her the night before her arrest, Bynes tweeted yesterday that she was sexually assaulted during the arrest, after the cops “found nothing.”

Bynes has previously said the object cops referred to was a vase, and that she opened a window for fresh air.

In a long tweet yesterday, she said she and her lawyer are suing the NYPD, and advised the public to “never trust or listen to a word any person from my family says to the press.”

“My parents are almost 70 years old,” Bynes tweeted. “I would rather them be homeless than live off of my money.”

Today, in what will supposedly be her penultimate tweet on the matter, Bynes again said she is suing the NYPD for various things related to the arrest, including bringing her to a mental hospital and locking her up overnight “for coming home after a facial and working out with my trainer like the good girl that I am.”

She concluded by encouraging the public to anticipate another nose job and her impending career “as a singer/rapper!”

“I’m free forever!” she tweeted.
