Amanda Bynes’ Court Appearance: Totally Wiggin’ Out
After miraculously clearing her psychiatric evaluation and spending the night behind bars, a handcuffed Ms. Bynes (still sporting her platinum blonde wig, natch) was escorted by police into a NYC courthouse to see the judge and meet her fate.
Because Amanda is everyone’s new favorite celebrity trainwreck (Lindsay Lohan, who?), she was, of course, met by a swarm of media when she arrived at the courthouse. Even though she had her fancy blonde wig positioned squarely atop her head, Mandy felt she was ill-prepared for a closeup (perhaps because she was wearing the same clothes she was arrested in and didn’t wanna be photographed in the same outfit twice…), and being in no mood for photographs, repeatedly asked photogos not to take pictures, saying, “I’m asking you, I don’t want any pictures,” before announcing to the public courtroom, “I don’t want any photos. No press are allowed in here.” Again: public courtroom.
The Alleged Amanda Bynes Bong: Just A Vase?
Amanda Bynes stood before the judge, fussed with her wig a bunch, answered the judge’s questions (surprisingly, her answers sounded like those of a fairly normal human being), and appeared to mumble to herself throughout the arraignment hearing. Interesting, to say the very least.
Also of note: according to Manhattan Assistant District Attorney, Chikaelo Ibeabuchi, Amanda told police the bong she allegedly threw out of her apartment window “was just a vase.”
Beware, New Yorkers: Mandy Is On The Loose
While “The Amanda Show” — as we’re going to start calling it — is freakin’ hilarious, there may be reason to worry: at her court appearance, the judge decided not to hold Mandy in jail and released her on her own recognizance… meaning Amanda Bynes didn’t have to make bail, and is currently on the loose. We repeat: AMANDA BYNES IS ON THE LOOSE.
Amanda Bynes’ Charges
Bynes may be free to wander the streets of New York City at will, but she has been formally charged with marijuana possession, reckless endangerment, and attempted evidence tampering, and will face these charges on her assigned court date: July 9, 2013. In the meantime, Mandy’s tweets will have to provide our daily entertainment…
So far, so good.
