Amanda Bynes was arrested and then carted off to a psychiatric ward after throwing a bong out of her 36th floor apartment window in New York City on Thursday. Bynes was seen earlier smoking something that one of her neighbors described as marijuana in the lobby of the high-rise building where she lives, according to the New York Daily News on May 23, 2013.
Police arrived after being called by her neighbor in time to see the foot-long bong drop from the 36th floor of her apartment building, luckily the bong didn’t hit anyone on street level. Bynes tossing the bong out the window was due to this surprise visit by the cops, who found her “under a heavy sativa spell and the apartment reeking of pot,” according to the Daily News.
Bynes is called a “troubled soul” by one neighbor and another resident in the building claimed Amanda went ballistic in the lobby of the building a few weeks back. Bynes was yelling at the doorman and making a ruckus for no apparent reason at all. Residents of the building say she’s crying out for help.
This latest bong chucking incident comes on the heels of Bynes being rejected from a flight on a private jet over the weekend. She was planning to travel to Los Angeles, but showed up without a valid ID. When the pilot told her she couldn’t board the plane without a government issued ID, like a license, she demanded he’d Google her to prove who she is. Her license was suspended so it was no longer valid.
Amanda wouldn’t take no for an answer as she was bound and determined to board that flight. She screamed at the pilot, “I am Amanda Bynes,” and then demanded he Google her name in lieu of an ID. The pilot tried to appease the irate Bynes and he called his bosses at the small airline he worked for and asked if he could use a Google ID to let her on the flight, which was taking off from a small rural airport. That answer was “no” and the flight took off without her.
Amanda Bynes rejected from flight after pilot refused to take Google as a valid form of ID.
Amanda was hand cuffed and taken out of her apartment wearing a bizarre oversized blonde wig, which she used to cover her face yesterday. Cops were seen scouring the area where the bong fell, possibly looking for more contraband she may have ditched as the cops arrived.
Bynes DUIs, hit and runs, driving under suspension and posting racy pictures of herself online are some of the bizarre behaviors seen from this fallen star lately and the list goes on. She is a troubled soul, who appears to desperately need help.
Her actions last night proved that she’s a danger, she threw that heavy bong out of a window 36 floors above street level. She could have killed one or more people if they happened to be walking by at that time that bong came hurling down from above.
Bynes, 27, was charged with reckless endangerment, tampering with evidence and marijuana possession, cops said. Then she was carted off to Roosevelt Hospital to undergo a psychiatric evaluation.
She proved that she was a risk to others when she threw that bong out a 37-story window without concern that it could have killed someone, so the hospital could hold her, even if she refuses, for as long as New York state laws dictates. Hopefully this troubled soul does get the help she needs.
