Amanda Bynes was arrested last night, and—we know you'll be shocked—a bong was allegedly involved. A doorman at Bynes' Manhattan apartment building called police to report someone smoking pot in the lobby, and took police to Bynes' apartment when they arrived, Eyewitness News reports. She answered the door ... and then reportedly realized the cops could see her bong. So, they say, she took the obvious route and threw it out the 36th-floor window. She wasn't fooling anyone, though; police also say the apartment was thick with marijuana smoke at the time.

She was arrested for marijuana possession, reckless endangerment, and tampering with evidence. Police took her to the hospital for a psychiatric evaluation before booking her, E! reports.

In a bizarre development, publicist Jonathan Jaxson (this guy) tells Radar he's the one who called cops, because he "had proof [Bynes] was suicidal" and "high on drugs," and wanted to stage an "intervention." Bynes' arrest comes on the heels of her getting kicked off a plane because she had no official ID; she told the pilot to look her up on Google. Radar reports that her parents are considering a Britney Spears-style conservatorship, though they're apparently not having much luck on that front. (More Amanda Bynes stories.)
