Former Nickelodeon star Amanda Bynes arrested for drug possession in New York
Amanda Bynes


The troubled actress was taken into custody by police on Thursday night, who visited her New York City apartment after responding to a call for a disorderly person, and she was booked for criminal possession of marijuana, as well as reckless endangerment and felony tampering with evidence.

According to website TMZ, the latter charge stems from her attempting to throw a 'bong' device out of her apartment windows.

Police were initially called after a building official saw Amanda in the lobby with a marijuana-laced cigarette, and she was reportedly behaving erratically and talking to herself.

She is said to have gone "ballistic" during the arrest, yelling:"Don't you know who I am?"

Before being booked at the police station, she was taken to hospital for a psychiatric evaluation.

The 27-year-old star was expected to spend the night in Manhattan central booking and appear in court on Friday.

The 'She's The Man' star is currently on three years probation for driving with a suspended license, which she was given after making a plea deal earlier this month.

She also has a driving under the influence (DUI) case pending in Beverly Hills.

In December, Amanda - who has worried friends and family with her recent antics - settled two hit-and-run cases after reaching a civil compromise with her victims, saving herself from a potential 12 months in prison.
Along with her legal troubles, she was involved in two bizarre episodes in September 2012, locking herself in a store changing room for nearly two hours and refusing to come out and stripping off during a gym class.
