Bynes ‘gets break in bong case’
Amanda Bynes might not be prosecuted for allegedly throwing a bong out of a window.
The 27-year-old former child star was arrested in May 2013 after allegedly throwing the smoking apparatus out of her New York City apartment window.
And according to TMZ, she can look forward to the charges placed against her being “formally dismissed”.
Amanda faces prosecution for reckless endangerment, attempted tampering with evidence and unlawful possession of marijuana as a result of the incident.
But the website now reports the star, who has recently been released into the care of her parents after being treated for mental illness, may get off scott free.
“The case will be put on ice. Amanda will not enter a plea,” the outlet writes.
“If she keeps her nose clean and continues her therapy for the next six months, the charges will be formally dismissed and the case will be sealed.”
A law enforcement source also claims “the case will be resolved tomorrow in court”.
Before she was placed under an involuntary psychiatric hold last July, Amanda denied she threw a bong. Instead she insisted that the glass item was actually a vase.
“One reason the case is essentially being dropped cops didn't retrieve the glass for days, which means there's no proof what they eventually found was thrown by Amanda,” the website detailed.
“Our TMZ producer spotted the broken glass first, which looked like a bong, but the evidence was contaminated by weather, time and cigarette butts.”
Amanda was taken into custody last summer by mental health officials after she set a neighbour's driveway on fire before she was reportedly treated for schizophrenia and bipolar disorder.
She was released in December and her lawyer Tamar Arminak said in a statement previously that Amanda is “feeling better every day”.
