Amanda Bynes Arrested After Throwing Bong Out Window

Amanda Bynes was arrested last night after police were called to her apartment in NYC.

The actress was allegedly smoking weed in her apartment lobby, which caused a concerned doorman to call the cops. Others say her publicist Jonathan Jaxson alerted police because he was worried she would harm herself.

According to reports, Bynes allegedly threw a bong from the window of her 36th floor apartment when police confronted her. She’s been arrested for reckless endangerment, tampering with evidence and criminal possession of marijuana.

Perhaps the saving grace of this arrest is Bynes may finally get the help she needs. She underwent a psych evaluation at Roosevelt Hospital before being booked for drug charges.

As someone who has read and watched her life — or more correctly, her trainwreck of an existence — it’s a relief to know she may be taking the first steps to recovery even if it’s catalyzed by a dramatic intervention and another arrest. Whether or not her issues stem from substance abuse, mental illness or another condition, it’s obvious the girl needs help.

I think we all want her to go back to being Viola Hastings from She’s the Man (I know I do), but I think those times are over — for now, at least.

Here’s hoping Bynes recovers from whatever’s ailing her.
