Amanda Bynes was arrested by police in her New York apartment on Thursday night and taken into custody for a psychiatric evaluation, reports NBC News. She threw a bong out the window of her apartment when police arrived at the scene, who were responding to a report of a disorderly person.
She was arrested on charge of reckless endangerment, a crime under New York state law that is said to happen after an individual creates a substantial risk of serious physical injury to another person. Amanda was taken to Roosevelt Hospital to undergo a psychiatric evaluation, before being moved to a Midtown police station. Jonathan Jaxson told Radar Online:
‘I got police to be able to go to her home. I am told they found drugs and other things. I had proof she was suicidal. There were text messages and other things. I repeated all of this to the NYPD and they took it seriously. Amanda had called me and we had a private conversation, but it was clear to me that she was high on drugs, Then, she said that she didn’t want to live anymore. I took that as that she wanted to kill herself. I freaked out.’
NYPD has not confirmed any report of a suicidal person and law enforcement sources told NBC News they were responding to a report of a disorderly person. According to FOX News, Amanda was arrested for allegedly smoking marijuana in the lobby of her building. Authorities charged her with tampering with evidence, reckless endangerment and marijuana possession, police said.
NOTE: Amanda was rejected from a private jet flight at Teterboro Airport in New Jersey this weekend, reports TMZ. Amanda, wearing a velour jumpsuit and giant glasses, showed up at the private jet terminal on Sunday for a flight to LA.
The pilot was checking passenger IDs, her driver’s license was suspended and she had no other form of government ID. She then ordered him to Google her as proof, screaming, ”I’m Amanda Bynes!’ Pilot tried to get an exemption for her, but in the end no ID, no flight.
