As I’m sure you’ve heard by now, She’s the Man star Amanda Bynes was arrested last night for reckless endangerment, possession of weed and tampering with evidence after the doorman at her New York City apartment building called the cops on her for smoking the chronic in the lobby. It was reported that the cops found marijuana in her possession when they arrived at the scene, and when she opened the door to her crib, they spotted a bong, which she promptly (allegedly) chucked out the window.
Of course, as she arrived in court today, looking like a Courtney Love mannequin after Courtney Love beat it up for mocking her, Bynes told the judge that the part about throwing a bong out the window is just ridiculous.
Amanda Bynes is back on the streets … the judge released her on her own recognizance moments ago in NYC — after she offered a hysterical excuse for her alleged bong-tossing arrest.Amanda told the judge the bong cops say she threw out of her apartment window last night was “just a vase.” Prosecutors requested Bynes be held in lieu of $1,000 bail. The judge instead chose to let her go without bail … but gave her a stern warning that if she missed her court date in July an arrest warrant would be issued. (Via TMZ)
I imagine that Bynes’ attorney – whom I always picture as the chicken lawyer from Futurama – shouted something like, “If you can’t present the bong, then the prosecution must be wrong!” before hitting himself over the head with a shovel.
A lot of people have been arguing on the Tweeters that what is going on with Bynes is more tragic than it is funny, and while I can see their point, my response, as always, is – give me millions of dollars and let’s see if I go batsh*t insane. And if I do, you are all more than welcome to make fun of me.
