The NYPD is denying allegations that a police officer sexually harassed Amanda Bynes when she was arrested for possession of marijuana last week in her NYC apartment complex.
"Internal Affairs investigators have found no evidence to corroborate Ms. Bynes' allegations," the NYPD said in a statement, according to People. "To the contrary, a credible civilian witness who was with the officers throughout told investigators that none touched Ms. Bynes inappropriately or otherwise engaged in misconduct at any time."
Bynes posted the allegations on her Twitter this past Saturday, claiming that she was wrongfully arrested for possession of marijuana and for tossing a bong out of the window of her 36th floor apartment. From her tweet:
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.
After she posted the tweet, the NYPD stated that they would be conducting their own internal investigation into the allegations. Yesterday, Bynes tweeted that she wants to sue the NYPD for wrongful arrest, and her entire apartment complex for claiming that she smokes marijuana in her apartment.
OK, seriously - this has gone way past wondering whether or not she's trolling us all.
UPDATE: Bynes has responded to the NYPD's statements via her Twitter (of course):
My lawyer is getting my case dropped! There was no proof of sexual harassment or drugs. Instead of me asking for the cop to be arrested for sexual harassment, I want my case dropped as well. His punishment will be being the cop who sexually harassed someone who would never find him handsome enough to be my boyfriend. That's worse than any time in jail. But I am suing him for money compensation. I love having more money in my bank!
