Former Nickelodeon Star Arrested on Felony Charge TMZ
A former Nickelodeon star was arrested Thursday night at her apartment in New York City. TMZ.com reports that Amanda Bynes was arrested for allegedly possessing marijuana and tossing evidence out the window.
A building official called police after reportedly seeing Bynes with a joint in the lobby, talking to herself and acting oddly, the story says. She allowed police to enter her apartment, but when they saw her bong, she tossed the pot-smoking device out the window, according to the report.
When police arrested her, Bynes reportedly went wild and yelled, "Don't you know who I am?" She was wearing a platinum blonde wig at the time, the piece adds.
Bynes was arrested for alleged criminal possession of marijuana, as well as reckless endangerment and felony tampering with evidence. She was reportedly taken to a hospital for a psychiatric evaluation before going to the station.
Bynes starred in Nickelodeon shows in the 1990s and 2000s, including "The Amanda Show" and "All That," and has appeared in films such as "What a Girl Wants" and "She's the Man."
