Amanda Bynes says she isn’t crazy, also says a cop ‘slapped’ her biscuit

As we discussed on Friday, Amanda Bynes was arrested Thursday evening for marijuana possession and “felony bong tossing” (felony evidence tampering). She was arrested, taken in for a psych evaluation (which she somehow passed or something), then she spent the night in jail and appeared in court Monday morning. The prosecutor asked for Amanda to be held pending a more comprehensive evaluation of her mental health, and failing that, they asked for her to be held on $1000 bail. The judge was all, “I was some of the Cracken Glory” and he let Amanda go on her own recognizance. Then about a million different stories came out, so let’s do bullet points:

*Radar has a report of what was going on with Amanda in the 48 hours leading up to her arrest. According to Radar’s sources, Amanda has been mixing marijuana with Ecstasy, Percocet and Roxicontin, and she does them all in excess so she’s been delusional and “erratic”. A source says, “Amanda is completely pill’d out and mixes too many different pills with Molly [slang term for Ecstasy], which brings the high to a whole different level. Amanda is literally never sober. Being on all these pills has become the usual to her so she finds her behavior normal, but her reality is completely altered. When she’s high, or even coming down from high she becomes extremely paranoid.”

*Sources are positive that the drug use is just Amanda’s “self-medication” for her extreme mental health issues. Her parents have been trying to get her hospitalized because she began behaving strangely years ago. Apparently, “She even thought there were tracking devices in smoke detectors in her family home and would place sheets over them. Amanda also hears voices.”

*TMZ’s sources say that Amanda has never been diagnosed with a mental illness, although her parents thinks she could be bipolar of schizophrenic. Her parents want to put her under a Britney-style conservatorship, but the problem is that there isn’t enough evidence of Amanda’s mental illness or mental incompetence to warrant a 5150 hold (72 hour psychiatric hold) or a conservatorship.

*Here’s video of Bynes in court on Friday. I swear, from some angles you’ll think “Damn, Lindsay Lohan doesn’t look so bad.” The wig is a hot mess, but Amanda seems relatively pulled together. Her lawyer claims she only threw a vase out of the window, except the cops couldn’t find anything on the street so maybe she didn’t even throw anything?! Whatever. The lawyer also claims the cops entered Amanda’s apartment illegally. Quick question: the judge asks Amanda if she’s ever been in trouble before and both she and her lawyer so “oh, no” but she got a DUI in California and there were several other traffic incidents, right?

*As soon as Amanda was out on Friday night, she got back on Twitter and tweeted “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! :D and “I need Nicki Minaj’s wig person stat! :P. Then there was this tweet of beauty on Saturday:

A cop slapped Amanda’s vadge? It’s not that I doubt that there isn’t a cop somewhere who has ever done that, but with Amanda… oh, God. I don’t know what to say.

    i bet that’s not the first time she’s had her biscuit slapped.

    • Hanna says:

      You know whats really sad? if she is telling the truth and no one believes her :(

      I mean, did you see that video on TMZ on how that douche bag harassed her?!I was shocked on how sane she was reacting towards him..

      http://www.tmz.com/videos/0_f1bmcl53/

      I used to make fun of her.. but obviously she is mentally unstable which is unethical for us to laugh about..

      • Annie says:

        Yeah, I get mad when people mock her. She’s mentally ill. It’s just not ok to make fun of her.

        People used to think she was trolling but this is too much.

        That douche on TMZ, ugh!! How frustrated her family must be right now. They have NO options.

      • smee says:

        ITA – I feel sorry for her. People want to call her brat and whatnot but it appears to me that she truly has problems, both mental and addiction.

        I wonder if charges could be brought against that guy for touching her blanket? Seriously. That’s super obnoxious, whether she called him “ugly” “black” or “man”.

      • Miss M says:

        Well, you can tell she was very patient : please, don’t touch me… We know other celebs would had lost it with much less… I wonder if she was (verbally and) sexually abused during her years as a child star and this is how she is reacting. I hope not!

      • juls says:

        I would have punched that asshole in the face. And I am perfectly sane. He obv is not.

      • Lauren Carter says:

        @trying to reply to Miss M

        I put tons of money that it was Dan, he’s the one that created All That, iCarly, and I’ve always thought it was weird some old guy always made shows that focuses on young tween girls…

      • karmasabiatch! says:

        OK, I just watched that video. Hanna, thanks for providing it.

        I’m pretty disgusted by the way the paps were verbally and physically harassing her. I couldn’t believe that black guy kept pulling the towel off her head. And it sounds like the paps were also kicking her legs??

        At what point will pap restrictions be voted into law, that is inexcusable. The poor girl is clearly ill. As Lainey would call it…SAD SMUT.

      • KS says:

        @Lauren Carter: Please don’t ever speculate on someone sexually abusing children like that. That’s an awful thing to say about someone based on a ‘weird’ feeling.

      • Andrea says:

        It’s freaking sad. The douchbag’s taking the photos seems to be getting off on abusing her. I feel slimy just watching the video. Poor girl.

      • Leen says:

        @KS, there’s been a lot of rumours about Dan Schneider that he has abused a lot of nickledeon stars. A lot of the Nickeldeon shows have some inappropriate sexual hints as well.

      • Meaghan says:

        Woah! I just watched the video, if that would have been me I would have LOST IT ON THE PAPS!!! I feel soooo bad for the girl. This is getting ridiculous. Poor girl.

      • Asdfg says:

        I saw that too!

        It’s BS!

        I would have called the police if I was her! Yes, she’s unstable right now but that pap had no right to put his hands on her! Disgusting human being!

      • madla says:

        I feel sorry for her, used to laugh a bit at her, but come on, those people harassing her are SICK. I admire her she didnt beat him up. I’d attack them right away and im not even her. They’re laughing in her face, and those cameras everywhere.. they really have no respect for her personal space. How can you be so cruel? It’s like hunting!

      • jaye says:

        @Lauren Carter, it’s not okay to accuse someone of being some sort of sexual predator without any proof…even if it is just a gossip blog. People take things and run with them on the internet and rumors or speculation become “fact” overnight. You wouldn’t want someone to make those same baseless accusations about you.

      • Mich says:

        @ Jaye

        Lauren Carter isn’t the one creating the accusation. Speculation has been widely circulated for several years to the point that even Anonymous got involved and sent a message of warning to the person LC is talking about. As wacky as Corey Feldman is, I believe him when he says that pedophilia is rife in Hollywood and it needs to be exposed.

  2. Aussie girl says:

    This girl really needs help she is obviously mentaly unwell. How does she have $ to support herself ?

  3. Annie says:

    She could get in serious trouble if she’s making this up, which I wouldn’t put past her. I know cops are not the most upstanding men sometimes, and women with mental health issues are often victims of sexual assault, but there are witnesses. The cops never went up to her apartment alone. The building manager was there too. I really doubt something like that would happen with a building manager there.
    Unless they pat her down for weapons before her arrest, and now she says they “slapped her vagina.”

    Most of what she says makes no sense. She’s tweeting nonsense all day. She could get in serious trouble for making this up.

  4. Ellie66 says:

    Lol! I thought it was Lindsey for a minute. :D she is most certainly on that crazy train! It could be drugs or it could be she has “mental issues” made worse by drugs, but they are definitely involved. It’s scary she is alone in NY and behaving crazy she could easily invite the wrong people home and boom she is a Law and Order SVU episode. So sad that she doesn’t seem to have anyone there for her.

  5. aims says:

    no question that she’s ill. She needs some serious help. I’m sympathetic in this case because I don’t feel that this is a Lohan situation. I believe Amanda is delusional and actually believes what she’s saying. I hope that her parents can intervene here, because clearly she can’t take care of herself.

    • GoldenState says:

      Ugh, I completely agree. What’s sad is that she has been single, living alone, and out on her own like this for what seems like months, even a year, and her parents are nowhere to be seen! What’s all that about? They liked her when she was a child star bringing in money, but the moment she needs some rehab and psychiatric help they are absent? Bullshit!

      • Jayna says:

        Her parents have been trying to help her for years. She has resisted and becomes estranged when they push. As she is an adult, they are powerless. They even moved to California trying to help her, and she up and moved away to NY when they did. She refused contact with them. Legally they have no standing. They have stated publicly she needs a mental evaluation. I feel for them. They must feel so
        helpless.

      • Kim1 says:

        Unless you have an adult child who has never harmed herself or threaten to harm herself or others than you have no idea what her parents and or friends have done to try to help her

      • the original bellaluna says:

        Jayna – It must be awful for a parent to see an adult child mentally spiral out-of-control, and be powerless to intervene.

  6. MojoRising says:

    It’s not the least bit funny any more. Who could look at those pictures and see anything other than a mentally ill person. That judge is an idiot and missed a real opportunity to get Amanda some help. This is just sad.

    • GoldenState says:

      Right? This girl needs some serious psychiatric help. I wonder if it’s drug-induced psychosis or some sort of disorder? Whatever it is, I could tell months ago something was not right!

    • Meaghan says:

      The judge cannot decide is she is sane or crazy. Meek al professionals study her, which they did, and found she is not crazy. A judge is not trained in the medical field, he can only decide based on the reports he is given. She was studied and released, and keep in mind what we are seeing is VERY different from could be going on behind closed doors. She could be playing it up to get more publicity. There is a difference between eccentric and crazy, and we don’t know the whole picture. Just her crazy tweets and interactions w the paps.

    • Mrs Odie 2 says:

      All the judge can do is follow the law. And I think that maybe her parents have something to do with why she’s like this as an adult, so I wouldn’t be handing the puppet strings over to them in a hurry.

  7. Nemesis says:

    She says she’s not crazy? Her wig begs to differ.

  8. Elly says:

    poor girl. she´s kaput and needs help. Wwhere are family and friends now?

    • Dutch says:

      Not much they could do, she’s an adult and not necessarily an immediate threat to herself or others. However, now that she’s in the justice system her family has better standing to get her the rehab/psychiatric help she appears to need.

  9. teehee says:

    I bet it was part of the pat down, they check everything, and for someone like her, Im surprised they didnt do a more thorough search, but, they had no reason to go there to begin with except whoever called on her….so…
    She came across as completely defensive and far too assertive even though she only said a few words. It does seem very unusual, viewed in full isolation, just how she behaved in those 3 minutes alone….

  10. JennJ says:

    Holding someone against their will for psychiatric reasons is very difficult legally. I don’t know the specifics (and if you do please enlighten me — I am curious), but I think that you do have to prove that they are in danger of suicide or homicide.

    This law is for good reason, because in the past too many people were locked up by their families in psychiatric hospitals. Unfortunately though for people like Amanda, who clearly need help, there is not much that can be done.

    • Kate says:

      Exactly. If she’s not a danger to herself or others, that’s about it.

    • Dutch says:

      But now that she’s in the criminal justice system, I think that makes the process a little easier. That was the opening the Spears family used to get Brittney the help she needed.

    • Sugar says:

      With our mental health mobile crisis team they get called to a situation to evaluate. I feel there are so many factors in play from the different agencies that can hinder that person getting help. the main one being a harm to self or society. where we the general rational public would say clearly this person meets that critera-they don’t.
      we have in our area a trianglualation of training between MH, law enforcement & the hospital. Many mentally I’ll people do not belong in jail it can make their symptoms worse since law enforcement usually are first responders we have those who are specially trained to encounter a person in a psychotic state & work with MH & the hospital to get them help instead of a mug shot. it’s not perfect bit it’s making a difference & not tying up the wrong resources.
      sorry for long answer. I guess when you work in this field you see a lot from all sides & it can be and is a real emotional mess for so many people.

    • PoliteTeaSipper says:

      In my area if police/hospital staff can find someone, anyone, to take you home and keep an eye on you they will throw you out the door so fast your eyes will water. 5150s are incredibly difficult to get here.

  11. Dedrie says:

    If ya ain’t drake, don’t kill my biscuit!

  12. Belle Epoch says:

    When the police came to her apartment she called 911. To get the police to get rid of themselves.

    What kind of trouble could she be in for making up stories about NYPD? I don’t believe for one second that she was sexually harassed. Is that libel or slander or anything?

  13. Nicolette says:

    She should be glad they didn’t do an anal cavity search.

    Has she never been through a mental evaluation? She needs to be, and soon.

  14. Decloo says:

    Was Michael Lohan around? Or the guy from ‘Lost’? Weren’t they vagina attackers?

  15. e.non says:

    it’s bad enough the mockery this ill girl is subjected to thru the gossip sites; but it’s sickening when the local tabs take part. the nydailynews has photos of her splashed all over.

    it also says something about the social services agencies when she’s deemed mentally fit to be released; when she’s clearly in some type of distress.

    • msw says:

      It is extremely difficult to prove a person is crazy and not just weird. Being weird is not a good enough reason to hold someone, and even if they could, it would be quite temporary. Yeah, it sucks, but what are they supposed to do? She’s in denial and she obviously wouldn’t admit to having delusions/hallucinations, if she is, because her life is “fabulous”.

  16. Madpoe says:

    Someone should’ve slap that ratty wig off her head forget her biscuit

  17. Talie says:

    Well, if they never found the bong or the pieces… that goes a long way toward backing up some of her story.

  18. Fartin Lawrence says:

    Who’s the bigger A-hole?

    A vaj slapper or a vagina kicker…

  19. Jennifer12 says:

    How is there never enough evidence to get a 5150 or rehab for this girl? She is in dire need of intervention.

    • Joanna says:

      It’s really hard to get someone in for mental reasons. my dad started acting nutty, thinking he was an fbi agent, my mom was trying to poison him, etc. We called hospitals, etc. to see what we could do. they said nothing unless he checked himself in. We couldn’t get him in the car. the cops came a couple times, thought he was just a nutty old man, didn’t do anything. finally I stopped a cop one day and told her what was going on. I signed a statement about what was ging on and got him signed in under something called the baker act. so then the police came and took him to the hospital and had him evaluated. he was going off the walls, acting crazy! they diagnosed him as having break from reality, I don’t remember the exact term, it was years ago. Basically, his heart condition was getting worse and he didn’t tell us. so he knew he was ill and he mentally snapped. they put him in hospice care and had a psychiatrist come and visit
      him and help him accept the fact that he was dying. we didnt know how bad he was. it was crazy. but he went back to being our dad, but weaker and weaker, until he finally passed away. so it’s really hard to get someone committed for evaluation, to make a long story short.

    • Jane says:

      The criteria for writing requires probable cause. These include danger to self; danger to others together with some indication, prior to the administering of the hold, of symptoms of a mental disorder; and/or grave disability, as noted below. The conditions must exist within the context of a mental illness.
      1.Danger to self: The person must be an immediate threat to themselves, usually by being suicidal. Someone who is severely depressed and wishes to die would fall under this category (though they generally have to have expressed a plan to commit suicide and not just a wish to die).
      2.Danger to others: The person must be an immediate threat to someone else’s safety.
      3.Gravely disabled:
      1.Adult (patients over 18 years of age): The person’s mental condition prevents him/her from being able to provide for food, clothing, and/or shelter, and there is no indication that anyone is willing or able to assist him/her in procuring these needs. This does not necessarily mean homeless, as a homeless person who is able to seek housing (even in a temporary shelter) when weather demands it would not fall under this category. Also, the mere lack of resources to provide food, clothing, or shelter is not dispositive; the inability must be caused by the psychiatric condition.
      2.Minor (patients under 18 years of age): The person is unable to provide for his/her food, clothing, and/or shelter or to make appropriate use of them even if these are supplied directly—for example, a psychotic adolescent who refuses to eat because he/she believes his/her parents are poisoning them.

      Seeing that Amanda is not showing the above characteristics at a high level–just acting crazy and being paranoid are not enough for a 5150–at least in the state of California. I do not know if New York has modified criteria. Until Amanda does something seriously over the top she will continue to just get her hands slapped.

      In Britney’s case I think her 5150 came at the time when she locked herself in a room with one of her boys and was threatening someone+ plus a bunch of other things.

  20. Just Me says:

    You know, if this is legit, and she *truly* has mental issues, then i feel sorry for her; however, this is too crazy and way over the top. I’m not sure I buy this Amanda Bynes thing. Wasn’t there a blind last year about a starlet & her publicist creating a Britney style meltdown for publicity? The whole nose job thing is entirely too contrived. I’m not buying it.

    • Denise says:

      Tell me then, who would hire her now?! What more proof do you need that she’s not in control?

      • Just me says:

        A Britney style breakdown requires a comeback, no? It’s not about the breakdown. It’s about the almighty comeback from the breakdown. Has Amanda not received mass amounts of press lately?

        Also, I don’t know Amanda. I haven’t proof of anything. Unless you know Amanda personally, neither do you. There’s a modern adage related to Facebook that’s very relevant to Twitter, as well. What someone posts as their Facebook/Twitter status is what they want you to see. Not necessarily who they are. You’ll note that despite everything Britney went through – her struggles never aired out on Twitter. Why? Because it wasn’t something she wanted people to know.

  21. hayley says:

    another example about of how she refuses to take responsibility. i’m certain that a cop didnt slap her.

  22. chalkdustgirl says:

    The photog, black or white, was being a dic*. He was pulling the blanket off her head while smiling in an almost playful manner, completely ignoring the rules and despite her polite reminders that he wasn’t supposed to touch her. He was ugly inside his heart for doing this.

  23. grabbyhands says:

    I feel bad about doubting her-but with the level of paranoia being displayed lately, it’s hard not to. I have a feeling this is more how her mind is trying to explain what happened so she doesn’t have to face the reality of her life rather than true events.

  24. Lisa says:

    I believe she has serious mental health issues that need to be addressed. But, for all those saying her parents suck for not intervening, it is not that easy. She is an adult it is difficult to get someone help if they refuse.

  25. truthful says:

    she needs some kind of help, that wig…

    and there were pics of her walking out of a wig shop yesterday w/a sweater over her head.

    its sad

  26. LAK says:

    It’s been apparent for a very long time that Amanda is ill. However, it doesn’t seem as though her behaviour was completely out of control until she moved to NYC.

    All this is now in Deja Vu Britney territory. And Britney had several of these episodes, months of public erratic behaviour and finally endangering her boys BEFORE she could be held on 5150, and after that, it still took several months before the parents were able to get a conservatorship on her.

    Amanda’s parents have been trying to help, Amanda is refusing to take their help and ran away from them to NYC. If she’s able to convince a judge she’s fine, there is sod all the parents can do. And some forms of mental illness give the patient energy and focus when they fixate on something. Let’s not forget this girl is an actress. It’s all she knows. She may think she’s acting out a role, and has the tools to ‘act’ normal when required.

    She will have to prove herself a danger, just like Britney before her, before the parents or even the authorities can decisively help her.

  27. bridget says:

    A 5150 hold is a big, big deal – she has to be in danger of hurting herself or others in order to be held. There may clearly be something wrong with her, but Amanda has the right to be crazy and decline treatment. She also has the right to fritter through all her money. If she’s not a danger to herself or others, there’s not a thing that anyone can do. Remember that it used to be kind of a big deal that people could be institutionalized without their consent?

    Also, the mental evaluation at the jail was probably just to make sure that she’s competent to stand charges. Again, the NY legal system isn’t in a position to decide anything about her mental health other than to determine that she understands the charges brought against her.

  28. Janet says:

    This is no Lohan situation. Lohan is a spoiled entitled brat. This girl sounds like she is truly sick in the head. I hope she’s committed and treated for her illness before it’s too late for her.

    • Sugar says:

      agreed if we have to reference its more like Brittany. It sounds like the early symptoms (the smoke detectors) when for all anyone knew she wasn’t abusing drugs was the organic beginning now it’s complicated w/her drug use which is not uncommon but it’s a no brainer it’s not helping her.

  29. Patrice says:

    Whatever her true motivations, this whole thing is just so sad start to finish :( I was a big Amanda fan back in her ‘What I Like About You’ and ‘She’s the Man’ days; I’m really hoping she gets whatever type of help it is that she needs.

  30. Inconceivable! says:

    I watched the video if her in front if the judge and it was said that she has not been in trouble before…but she has in California. I guess that didn’t matter to the NY courts that she has some outstanding legal issues in CA which us why she moved to NY?!!

  31. EscapedConvent says:

    I don’t know why that wig is not enough evidence to show that something is wrong.

    I feel very sorry for her & her parents. She is obviously too delusional to see herself clearly, & her parents can do nothing because she’s an adult & is refusing help.

    As usual, nothing will be done until she hurts herself or someone else. Pretty sad.

  32. Janet says:

    Ugh. I’m starting to have real problems feeling sorry for this woman.

    Bynes to Rihanna on Twitter: “Chris Brown beat you because you’re not pretty enough”

    Bynes to Rihanna on Twitter: “You look so ugly tryin to be white”

    I realize she’s extremely disturbed but I couldn’t help wanting to administer a few slaps upside the head after reading that.

    (Rihanna’s response on Twitter: “You see what happens when they cancel an intervention?”)

  33. Mon says:

    This is not funny anymore. She clearly needs help

  34. Norman says:

    Amanda Bynes calls a photog an ugly black man, claims a cop slapped her “biscuit” and said Rihanna deserved the beating from Chris Brown because she wasn’t pretty enough. Amanda is more than just a fry or two short of a Happy Meal, she has no fries other than her fried brain and her late in life Howard Hughes lifestyle.

  35. TG says:

    When did all this start? I hadn’t seen Amanda’s name in the news until several months back. Too bad because I always thought she was good in movies and had an interesting look. I love her movie “What a Girl Wants” with Colin Firth and that cute guy who plays her English boyfriend. I am in my mid 30′s and have seen it a dozen times or so.

    • LAK says:

      i remember a couple of years ago [i think it was 2yrs, more or less] when she put out a message on social media saying she was retiring from acting because it wasn’t fun. Fired all her representation and then about a fortnight later [a month tops] decided she wanted to be an actor again.

      I seem to remember that everyone took it as her trying to kickstart her stagnant career in as famewhorey way as possible since she’d been out of the spotlight the previous year.

      Since then, there have been incidents of erratic behaviour including the series of car accidents which she refused to acknowledge despite being booked for DUIs. Still, it was contained, even if rumours did start to circulate about her mental health. MOst comments on her stories pointed to People thinking that she was just being a famewhore, LiLo style.

      Since she moved to NYC, it’s been uncontained and quite frequent. The drugs are making it worse, but she’s refusing all help it seems.

      She will have to do something that endangers either herself or others, before she can forcibly be helped.

  36. Jenn says:

    Crazy people usually don’t think they’re crazy, do they? I bet there was a female officer present during her pat down or they did in front of the car-cam, to prevent her being able to come back with this BS. Because yep, she’s crazy. Her Rhianna rant was mean spirited and out of nowhere. She’s very erratic. That’s more than weed. It’s like Multiple Personality Disorder or something. Wouldn’t that be a kick in the ass?

  37. Dreamory says:

    She would be absolutely irresistible…

  38. diva says:

    I am confused at how legally they thought Britney was crazy enough to get a 50/51 hold (sorry if that’s not the correct term) on her but not Amanda. Amanda sounds crazier to me than Britney did. Is it because brit had children?

  39. Miss Anne Thropic says:

    AMANDA!!!

    Take that shit out of your cheeks, let your hair grow back, lie low and start talking to an analyst. NO ONE WITH ANY BRAINS is judging you! We all know child stars get fucked up in the machine. Sue Disney!

    Also, try to stop picking fights on the damned twitter, it’s not helping.

    Start plotting your comeback Girl, look at Mariah and Britney’s formulas, DO NOT go the Lohan route and choose no budget films. Kill it with an INDIE!
