Times Square, NYC: Child actor Amanda Bynes was hit with a felony rap last night after a wild encounter with police in which she hurled a bong from a window of her 34th-floor apartment on West 47th Street in New York City. Cops were called when the building superintendent complained she was puffing on the pipe in the lobby, law-enforcement sources told The New York Post.
The 27-year-old actress allegedly hurled the bong at about 7:40 p.m. while the officers interviewed her, the sources said. It didn’t hit anyone. Bynes faces a felony count of tampering with evidence, along with charges of reckless endangerment and marijuana possession, sources said.12 Comments
TMZ: Reese Witherspoon pulled her celebrity card out while her husband was getting arrested for DUI, telling the officer who ended up busting her, “You’re about to find out who I am.”
The arrests went down in Atlanta early Friday morning. Cops say they spotted Reese and her husband Jim Toth’s car — a silver Ford Fusion — weaving in and out of lanes, so they pulled them over.
As officers dealt with Jim, Reese allegedly started acting up, telling cops, “Do you know my name?” The officer answered by saying, “No, I don’t need to know your name.”
Witherspoon then came back with, “You’re about to find out who I am … You are going to be on national news.”
During Jim’s arrest, Reese allegedly became ornery, demonstrating visual and verbal frustration over how long it was taking to arrest her husband. At one point, she got out of her car and the officer ordered her back inside. When she got out a second time, he arrested her for disorderly conduct, a municipal ordinance. As for Toth’s part of the arrest … the officer in the report described him by saying his “eye lids were droopy” and his eyes were “blood shot and watery.” The officer said he smelled a “strong odor” of alcohol coming from Toth.
They were both taken to jail, booked, and released a short time later.3 Comments
