Amanda Bynes threatens lawsuit against NYPD

The NYPD is denying accusations made by Amanda Bynes that officers “slapped” her vagina and otherwise trampled on her rights when they arrested her last week for allegedly tossing a bong out of her apartment window.

Deputy Commissioner Paul J. Browne told TMZ that they found “no evidence to corroborate” her story and a civilian who witnessed the entire arrest said nothing unprofessional occurred.

Still, Bynes used Twitter to threaten a lawsuit: “I’m so offended but I’m also so educated that I know cops cannot illegally enter my apartment, sexually harass me, arrest me, take me to a MENTAL HOSPITAL, then lock me up for a crime I didn’t commit… Thankfully I’m an educated multi-millionaire who knows better than to speak to perverted unjust cops without my lawyer.”

Bynes was indeed submitted for a psychiatric evaluation amid fears that she is suffering from a bipolar disorder or the onset of schizophrenia.

  • Neighbors again called the cops on Justin Bieber for zipping around at “breakneck” speeds in his Ferrari on their quiet Calabasas street.
  • Dan Harmon, quirky creator of the show “Community,” is reportedly in talks to return to the show, which has weakened since his departure.
