Amanda Bynes was arrested in her West 47th Street apartment on Thursday night after allegedly smoking pot in the building’s lobby. The plot thickens, according to NBC New York: “When officers observed a bong inside the apartment as Bynes opened the door, she allegedly grabbed it and tossed it out of the window, sources said.” Bynes is being charged with possession of marijuana, tampering with evidence, and reckless endangerment. She reportedly received a psychiatric evaluation at Roosevelt Hospital before being processed at a Midtown police station. If you’re interested in a real rumory rumor, TMZ hears that Bynes Witherspooned out and went “kicking and screaming during the arrest, and yelling … ‘Don’t you know who I am?’”

Update: Bynes went before a judge Friday morning and reportedly told him the bong was “just a vase.” She was released without bail (against prosecutors’ wishes) and has another court date in July.
