|Amanda Bynes in court|
(Scroll down for video) Amanda Bynes filed a complaint with police saying that a New York police officer slapped her private parts during her arrest on drug charges, according to a statement released by New York police.
Amanda Bynes also said that police claims that she launched a bong out the window of her apartment was false. "I've never held a bong in my life," she wrote on twitter. Now, she is accusing police who arrested her of sexual harassment.
"They lied when they said I threw a bong out the window when I opened the window for fresh air. Hilarious," she wrote on twitter. "They slapped my privates. Sexual harassment. Big deal. Then, I called the police on them. They handcuffed me, which I resisted, very different from any of the reports," she also wrote on twitter.
As a result, NYPD spokesperson Detective Brian Sessa said that as protocol, the police are conducting an investigation.
Police denied Bynes’ version of events.
"She was on the phone with the police making allegations against officers before they entered the apartment," police said. "An independent witness, the building manager, was there," police added. “She should be ashamed of herself. Many children look up to her and she is setting a terrible example. Hopefully, this drug addict will not get hired again to act in another movie,” Kathy Norman, 27, of New York City told YourJewishNews.com after being asked to comment on the Amanda Bynes arrest.
As we reported earlier, Amanda Bynes was arrested and charged with reckless endangerment and marijuana possession related charges after she threw a bong out from her New York City apartment window, according to a statement released by police in New York.
The building staff at “The Biltmore” located on West 47th Street called police after they saw the embattled former television star smoking marijuana in the lobby of the luxury building around 7:40 pm.
Officers arrived at the building, went up to the 36th floor and entered Bynes’ apartment, only to find the once Nickelodeon actress under the influence and smelling of marijuana.
Frightened by the surprise visit, Bynes suddenly pulled out a foot long bong and threw it out the window, while police watched.
Luckily, the bong did not hit anyone on the street. Witnesses later saw a police officer and a maintenance worker working to collect the broken bong pieces.
"Pray for her," a resident of “The Biltmore” said. "She needs help. She is crying out for help," she added.
Another neighbor said he saw Bynes go crazy in the lobby for the past several weeks.
"She was always yelling at the doorman when she was coming and going," the neighbor said.
Police charged Bynes, 27, with reckless endangerment, tampering with evidence and possession of marijuana, police said. She was taken to Roosevelt Hospital to undergo a psychiatric evaluation, police said.Mobile video not loading? Click here to view
