Amanda Bynes Bong-Tossing Case Dropped

Amanda Bynes has been a good girl (so far) and so the charges against her regarding a bong she tossed in NYC have been dismissed by a criminal court. The eccentric actress had been on her best behavior and not gotten into trouble and so she was let off the hook. 

The previous year, Amanda Bynes had been taken into custody over endangerment charges and the illegal possession of marijuana. New York City building managers called police "because they said she was smoking pot in the lobby" of her 36th-floor apartment in Manhattan.

She had been taking draught after draught of pot in her apartment and when the police turned up at her place she casually threw the bong outside her window. 

The charges against her were subject to reversal provided that she didn’t engage in any more of her shenanigans and visited a counselor regularly. These conditions she fulfilled with alacrity and so she was given a pardon by the law. Lori Petersen, the judge of Manhattan Criminal Court, closed the case.

Her lawyer, Gerald Shargel, appeared in court this time around. Amanda Bynes was not there though. "She did her counseling and it's now all behind her," Shargel said outside court. 

The lawyer spoke of how all that wild child behavior was in the past and she was a sober lady now. It was just history and would not happen again he reassured the court of law. 

Amanda Bynes also had drunk driving charges against her and had dented a sheriff’s car. But that too was something about which she was contrite and had attended alcoholic counseling classes. 

28-year-old Amanda had even gotten the help of a mental health professional after she had arson charges brought against her. She had celebrated her 28th birthday in April.

She started working just at the age of 13. "The Amanda Show" on Nickelodeon is her first show that was a big hit. Bynes worked in many films including "Hairspray," "What I Like About You" and "She's the Man." She also worked in a TV series "What I Like About You." 

Amanda has declared publicly that her honeymoon with acting is over. "Easy A" was her last film released in 2010. Now she wants to relax and take it easy now. 

Of course, the show biz lifestyle can sometimes get to people and literally drive them bonkers. Take the lives of such famous people as Elvis, Janis Joplin and Marilyn Monroe and you get a pretty good idea of how stress levels run high in the field of entertainment. 

Anyone who wants to be a star has to remember that it is not all just a bed of roses. And even if it is, the roses have their thorns attached with them.
