The arrest of Amanda Bynes:
This former child star has had several run-ins with the law; the most publicized involved throwing a bong out of a midtown Manhattan apartment window.
Amanda Bynes was born and raised in Thousand Oaks California, and gained fame in the late 1990's and early 2000's on the kid's channel Nickelodeon, on the series "All That" and "the Amanda show".
Later on she enjoyed success on the WB Network sitcom "What I Like about You" and she appeared in several films, including 2007's "Hairspray".
By 2010, the now 24 year old Amanda appeared on the cover and in a photo spread in Maxim magazine…
…saying the new image is "Who I Am". She also announced she was tired of acting and would stop doing it, but changed her mind a few weeks later.
Her legal problems started in March 2012 when she was ticketed for talking on a cell phone while driving. It got worse a month alter when she was arrested for DUI after side swiping a police car in West Hollywood. Later that same year, she was accused in two hit and run accidents and had her driver's license suspended and had her car impounded after she was caught driving without a license. She got three years' probation and had her license restored in April 2014.
But in between, there were other problems, including a May 2013 incident when she was arrested for criminal possession of marijuana and was accused by police of throwing a bong out of her 36th floor apartment window.
No one on the busy Manhattan Street below was hit or injured. The case against her was dismissed in June 2014.
There was a June 2013 incident in California when she was accused of setting a small fire in the driveway on a strangers' home in Thousand Oaks. She was hospitalized for a 72 hour mental evaluation for that and also later agreed to seek counseling for the New York bong-throwing incident.
