NEW YORK -- It's definitely a memorable, if not quite classically Memorial Day, weekend so far for Amanda Bynes.
The unpredictable and very bewigged starlet was arrested and afterwards, Tweeted the following clarification out to the general and we assume very curious public. Her only take-away from this rather humiliating experience: a need for self-improvement.
"I only smoke tobacco I don't drink or do drugs. I've never had a bong in my life! I need to get another nose job after seeing my mugshot!"
The NYPD would beg to differ; Bynes was arrested Thursday and booked for possession of marijuana and throwing a bong out of her 36th-floor window. She later said the bong was a vase. Potato, potato, as they say.
The actress went back to Twitter and posted the following by way of explanation on Saturday.
"Don't believe the reports about me being arrested. It's all lies. I was sexually harassed by one of the cops the night before last which is who then arrested me. He lied and said I threw a bong out the window when I opened the window for fresh air. Hilarious. He slapped my vagina. Sexual harassment. Big deal. I then called the cops on him. He handcuffed me, which I resisted, quite unlike any of the reports stated. Then I was sent to a mental hospital. Offensive. I kept asking for my lawyer but they wouldn't let me. The cops were creepy. The cop sexually harassed me, they found no pot on me or bong outside my window. That's why the judge let me go. Don't believe any reports."
The NYPD is now investigating the allegations of sexual assault by the arresting officers.
"As it would with any such allegation, regardless of its credibility, IAB is investigating" said the NYPD's chief spokesman, Paul Browne, referring to the internal affairs bureau.
Bynes, who is charged with reckless endangerment, made no mention of the alleged assault during her arraignment on Friday.
