27-year-old Amanda Bynes continues her very public crack-up with an arrest for reckless endangerment. Police were called to her New York City apartment last night following reports of disorderly conduct by the actress.
Bynes was charged with pop possession, reckless endangerment and tampering of evidence.
According to the Huff Post, neighbors were concerned about her odd behavior which included speaking to herself.
When police arrived, the actress threw a drug-related bong out the window which prompted her being arrested for reckless endangerment – a misdemeanor charge.
The former co-star of the hit movie “Easy A” didn’t make things easier for herself by exclaiming, “Do you know who I am?” Playing celebrity card failed to sway the arresting officers. Before she was in-processed at the county jail, Bynes was administered a psych evaluation.
A source close to Bynes told TMZ that police were called because the former actress was showing signs of disturbing behavior, including talking to herself. According to the website, when the police showed up she lost it and began yelling, “Don’t you know who I am?”
Fans of hers are hoping that this latest incident might lead to the much needed psychiatric intervention that the actress has been needing ever since her descent into trouble over the past year. Bynes has had trouble over a DUI incident, hit-and-run, and obvious drug use.
It seems that almost weekly the actress is trying to garner positive attention for herself while being seemingly oblivious to how she feeds the very tabloid stories she disdains. Bynes has refused to acknowledge any need for help, but hopefully this incident will be able to change that.
UPDATE: The Associated Press reports that it was a building official who called police to complain that Bynes was smoking marijuana and rolling a joint in the building’s lobby. When cops went to Bynes’ apartment they saw heavy smoke and a bong, which Bynes then threw out the window in front of the officers.
“Amanda Bynes Arresed” isn’t the only headline the troubled star has had this week.
On Thursday Bynes tried to board a private flight from the New York area to Los Angeles with a Google search instead of government I.D. after telling the plane’s pilot her license was suspended and she had no other form of identification.
The Daily Mail reports, The actress was then informed that per TSA regulations she would not be able to fly without it, at which point Amanda directed the Google, with sources reporting that she screamed ‘I’m Amanda Bynes!’
The pilot then reportedly called a representative from the airline to see if they could allow the faded starlet onto the flight, but the jet company was adamant that no special treatment was to be given.
She was not able to take the flight.
