Amanda Bynes: Arrested at NYC Apartment

Amanda Bynes has been arrested after officers were called to her apartment on report of a disorderly person on Thursday night (May 23) in New York City.

The 27-year-old actress was arrested for criminal possession of marijuana, felony tampering with evidence, and reckless endangerment after reportedly throwing a bong out the window when the police arrived, according to NBC.

After the reported arrest, Amanda went to Roosevelt Hospital for a psychiatric evaluation and was then taken to a Midtown police station to be processed.

Amanda is scheduled to meet with a judge tomorrow.

    maybe that manic panic little voice of hers wasn’t acting on that show she was on with the old 90210 girl as her sister.
    it is possible amanda for real has a manic personality, and she NEVER was the cute adorable nice girl she SEEMED to be.
    she is a little psycho,
    going after people who DARE present another image of herself, than SHE wants to present,
    she is pretty damn lost in keeping up appearances, her crazy idea of what a good appearance is,
    now this girl-woman amanda IS what we call a TRAINWRECK,
    no doubt about it,
    but is it alcohol or drugs or pure crazy that makes her that way? who knows?
    she simply is not even close to acting like a normal person who is sane, she lost it, she is like anne heche used to be, confused

    @JL: It’s not as easy for a family to just step in. She is pretty messed up and definitely needs help. Unfortunately, the law is on her side. Hope she gets admitted to a psych hospital.

    It’s about time…..she needs some serious Meds for Bi Polar disease.
    I’m concerned that her family has been in denial that she’s very ill.

    This is the best news for she will get the medical attention this girl truly needs…That is the only way authorities can intervene..if she poses a threat to others…

    What happened to this girl? She used to be so sweet and now she’s a mentally ill drug addict.

    I am glad she was arrested and brought to the hospital. I hope this will give her family the chance to get some help for her like when Britney Spears had her melt down. The problem is there are laws. Once a person is legally an adult their parents can’t just take over and do anything. It takes some kind of “event” to let her parents go to court and get legal authority to have her treated because maybe she is using drugs, but it is way more than that. It is obvious she has some kind of mental disorder. I feel sorry for her and her family. I hope she will be OK eventually.

    Maybe now the family can step in to help?

    Its so sad to see, but I hope she accepts that she’s got some problems.

    Glad she didnt hurt herself or anyone else.

    So what Hollywood can do to you. They use you and when they don’t need you they spit you out. Poor girl she can’t find a job, too many up and rising young stars coming our way.

    The majority of the posts on this thread only show how unknowledgable and insensitive people are when it comes to mental illness; why don’t we leave the diagnosis and treatment to the professionals?

    Leave her alone – she’s doing fine – taking her to see a shrink – reminds of the harassment that Francis Farmer was subject to before she was destroyed and her brain fried.
    Amazing reading the comments of the know nothings who base all their assumptions on a few photos and some heavy melodramatic editorialising
    Let her be – so what if she gets a bit shitfaced and sends a few hottie tweetpics – big fn deal ! Many of my female friends were just the same at her age – they all survived thrived and ignored bullshit chorus’ of disapproval.
