Ex-child star Amanda charged with hurling bong out of window

Actress Amanda Bynes was charged with reckless endangerment after police say she heaved a marijuana bong out of an apartment window in New York City.

She appeared in Manhattan court wearing a tracksuit and a long, dishevelled blonde wig.

The incident happened at her apartment building on West 47th Street.

Police say a building official called police to complain that Bynes was smoking marijuana and rolling a joint in the building's lobby.

The officers went to Bynes' apartment where they saw heavy smoke and a bong, which Bynes then threw out the window.

Her lawyer says she denies the incident.

Bynes starred in Nickelodeon's All That.
