She's The Man actress Amanda Bynes arrested after throwing marijuana bong out of window


American actress Amanda Bynes, star of 2006 film She's The Man, has been arrested in New York City after she threw a marijuana bong out of a window.

Police say an apartment building official called police to complain that Bynes was smoking marijuana and rolling a joint in the lobby.

The officers went to Bynes' apartment, where they saw heavy smoke and a bong, which Bynes then threw out the window in front of the officers.

Bynes was arrested on charges of reckless endangerment, tampering with evidence and criminal possession of marijuana. It wasn't clear if she had a lawyer.

Bynes rose to fame starring in Nickelodeon's All That and has starred in several films, including 2010's Easy A.
