Amanda Bynes, seen here at the 2008 SAG Awards, has been arrested for marijuana possession in NYC.

Former teen actress Amanda Bynes, who has been seen exhibiting outrageous behaviour in public, was arrested in midtown New York on Thursday night.

Police were called to The Biltmore on 47th St, after staff noticed the TV star smoking marijuana in the lobby. When police arrived, Bynes was in her 36th floor apartment, where officers observed her throwing a large glass bong out the window to the street below.

Bynes, who last year had a DUI arrest for hitting a police car in West Hollywood, was charged with reckless endangerment, tampering with evidence and marijuana possession.
