Looks like Amanda Bynes might be putting her legal difficulties behind her after a New York City judge dismissed charges of pot possession and throwing a bong out of her 36th-floor apartment.
The criminal case against Amanda stemmed from a May 2013 incident. A 911 call was placed from her apartment building, complaining that someone was smoking marijuana. Police arrived and were led to Bynes’ apartment, where they were let in by Amanda herself.
When police noticed the smell of marijuana, Bynes grabbed her bong and threw it out the window. She was charged with criminal possession of marijuana, tampering with physical evidence, and reckless endangerment. Needless to say, an object, especially one made of glass, falling 36 stories could cause serious injury or even death to someone on the ground.
Amanda Bynes got her start acting in commercials and on stage around Los Angeles. Her big break came when she was 13, appearing on Nickelodeon’s The Amanda Show. She then went on to the WB series What I Like About You. She had a brief career in movies, appearing in What a Girl Wants, She’s the Man, and Hairspray, among others.
