Amanda Bynes on NYC Arrest: ‘I Was Sexually Harassed By One of the Cops…’
Some 24 hours after appearing in a New York City court as she faces several charges related to an arrest at her Midtown apartment, Amanda Bynes has once again taken to Twitter to speak about the matter.
On Saturday afternoon, the 27-year-old wrote the following:
“Don’t believe the reports about me being arrested. It’s all lies. I was sexually harassed by one of the cops the night before last which is who then arrested me. He lied and said I threw a bong out the window when I opened the window for fresh air. Hilarious. He slapped my vagina. Sexual harassment. Big deal. I then called the cops on him. He handcuffed me, which I resisted, quite unlike any of the reports stated. Then I was sent to a mental hospital. Offensive. I kept asking for my lawyer but they wouldn’t let me. The cops were creepy. The cop sexually harassed me, they found no pot on me or bong outside my window. That’s why the judge let me go. Don’t believe any reports.”
The new message comes one day after the former Nickelodeon star appeared in court — in a blonde wig, baggy black sweatshirt and grey sweatpants — before Judge Neil Ross of the Criminal Court of the City of New York.
Bynes was arrested on May 23 after she allegedly threw a bong from the 36th floor of her apartment. She faces charges of reckless endangerment, criminal possession of marijuana and tampering with evidence.
On Friday, after Bynes was released without bail, she posted the following on Twitter:
“I only smoke tobacco I don’t drink or do drugs. I’ve never had a bong in my life! I need to get another nose job after seeing my mugshot! :D”
Her next court appearance is July 9.
