Bong-toss­ing Bynes off the hook ...if she be­haves

Winnipeg Free Press - Section G - - ENTERTAINMENT -

NEW YORK — The bong-toss case against Amanda Bynes will be dis­missed if she stays out of trou­ble for six months and goes to coun­selling. A Man­hat­tan judge on Fri­day al­lowed the ad­journ­ment in con­tem­pla­tion of dis­missal, which means the trou­bled ac­tress does not have to ad­mit guilt. She must at­tend coun­selling twice a week for six months. The Hair­spray ac­tress didn’t ap­pear in court. An af­fi­davit filed on her be­half by at­tor­ney Ger­ald Shargel said she un­der­stood the agree­ment. Bynes was charged last spring with reck­less en­dan­ger­ment and mar­i­juana pos­ses­sion af­ter build­ing man­agers called po­lice be­cause they said she was smok­ing pot in the lobby of her Man­hat­tan apart­ment. When of­fi­cers en­tered her 36th-floor apart­ment, they said they saw her heave a bong out the win­dow.
