STAY STRONG! NYPD initially responded to Amanda Bynes‘ apartment because of a report of a disorderly person, it was revealed that a caller told police the former Nickelodeon star was rolling a marijuana joint and smoking it, in the lobby of The Biltmore on W. 47th Street, reports Radar.
When officers arrived and confronted Amanda she threw a bong out of her 36th floor window, ehich she claimed Friday morning in court was a vase. Source: ‘In the last couple days leading up to Amanda’s arrest she was pretty out of control. At this point everyone knows she smokes marijuana, but it’s the combination of that weed with Ecstasy, Percocet and Roxicontin that is really making her crazy.
And Amanda doesn’t just do a little bit of these drugs, she does a lot and it makes her delusional and erratic, which is exactly what happened before she was arrested. Amanda is completely pill’d out and mixes too many different pills with Molly [slang term for Ecstasy], which brings the high to a different level.
Amanda is literally never sober. Being on all these pills has become the usual to her so she finds her behavior normal, but her reality is completely altered. When she’s high, or even coming down from high she becomes extremely paranoid.
Her parents wanted her to go to a psychiatric hospital to deal with her mental health issues, which include hearing voices. They don’t believe her ‘problem is rooted in an addiction to drugs..
She even thought there were tracking devices in smoke detectors in her family home and would place sheets over them. Amanda also hears voices. It’s so sad for her family to watch her unravel like this. She think she has anything wrong with her. She refuses to see a psychiatrist and says everyone is just out to get her!’
Amanda has been clearly using drugs, yes, including marijuana, but that is just the symptom. The fact is Amanda suffers from severe mental health issues that she refuses to accept. Rick and Lynn want her to seek in-patient treatment at a psychiatric hospital so she can be properly treated.’
Amanda was with reckless endangerment, attempted tampering with evidence and unlawful possession of marijuana, all misdemeanors. When Bynes’ parents confronted her several months ago with their concerns she moved to New York.
Her parents Rick and Lynn, recently consulted with several lawyers in hopes of getting a conservatorship for their troubled daughter, but were told they’d be unsuccessful because the actress didn’t meet the strict criteria.
‘Rick & Lynn have met with several lawyers that handle conservatorships in the past month, because they want to get a conservatorship of their daughter. They have been advised that even as disturbing as Amanda’s behavior is, it’s very unlikely that a judge would sign off on a temporary conservatorship.
Conservatorships are very hard to get, and being mentally ill and addicted to drugs isn’t enough. Amanda hasn’t ever been to rehab or ever agreed to see a mental health professional. Her parents are absolutely powerless to do anything at this point. This latest arrest has broken their hearts and they are sick with worry, but there is nothing they can do under the law’
TMZ obtained the criminal complaint from the incident, which says a man in Amanda’s building told cops he witnessed the actress smoking a joint in the first floor lobby. The report says an officer went to Amanda’s room, and saw a bong on the kitchen counter. According to the report, the cop — wearing a ‘full police uniform’, asked Amanda about the bong and that’s when the actress flipped out.
Cop: ‘I observed [Amanda] grab said bong, run to the westbound-facing window, and throw it out the window where numerous pedestrians were walking on the 8 Avenue and West 47 Street sidewalks below.’
