If Amanda Bynes is, in fact, just one big piece of performance art, then she’s extremely devoted to the craft: the All That star turned social media vigilante has been reportedly arrested for an episode that involved marijuana use and, in a turn of events more uniquely Bynesian, the throwing of a bong out of her 36th story window in Midtown Manhattan.

NBC News reports that a doorman caught Bynes smoking pot in the lobby of her apartment building on Thursday night and proceeded to call the police — enforcements arrived to find Bynes in her apartment upstairs, noting the distinct odor of marijuana and catching her in the act of attempting to obscure evidence by throwing a bong out of her window. As a result, Bynes was apprehended and charged with criminal possession of marijuana, tampering with evidence, and reckless endangerment.

Officers brought Bynes to Roosevelt Hospital for psychiatric evaluation, and then to a New York police station for processing. Bynes is believed to have spent the night in Manhattan central booking and is expected to appear in court on Friday.

Staff editor Michael Arbeiter’s natural state of being can best be described as “mild panic attack.” His earliest memories of growing up in Queens, New York, involve nighttime conversations with a voice from his bedroom wall (the jury’s still out on what that was all about) and a love for classic television that spawned from the very first time he was allowed to watch “The Munsters.” Attending college at SUNY Binghamton, a 20-year-old Michael learned two things: that he could center his future on this love for TV and movies, and that dragons never actually existed — he was kind of late in the game on that one.
