Handcuffed Amanda Bynes kept her head down, her face hidden by platinum blonde wig, as she was escorted by police from her New York apartment to the police van.

The actress, who has been making headlines lately for her erratic behavior, was arrested Thursday night after the doorman in her building called police to report that Bynes was smoking pot in the lobby. By the time officers arrived, she had gone back to her apartment, where they saw heavy smoke and a bong, which Bynes then threw out the window, reports AP.

Bynes was arrested on charges of reckless endangerment, tampering with evidence and criminal possession of marijuana.

TMZ reports Bynes shouted at police the now-famous Reese Witherspoon arrest line: "Don't you know who I am?!"

NBCNewYork reports Bynes was taken to Roosevelt Hospital to undergo a psychiatric evaluation, then to a Midtown police station to be processed. She was expected to spend the night in Manhattan central booking and appear in court today.

UPDATE: 1 p.m.: Bynes appeared in court. New York's Daily News has a shot of her, complete with one pink acrylic fingernail. According to the News, Bynes was "making strange faces and yelling at reporters."

"My client completely denies illegally throwing anything out of her window," said Andrew Friedman, her attorney for the arraignment, according to AP. "I don't want any photos. No press are allowed in here," announced the disheveled star to the public courtroom.

The judge released her on her own recognizance and gave her a July 9 court date.
