Amanda Bynes has been out of rehab and home with her parents in Thousand Oaks, Cali. for a few months now and she has plenty of reason to celebrate. Not only is she getting healthier by the day, it looks like a New York City judge is dismissing the bong-toss case, according to Washington D.C. WTOP 103.5 and the Associated Press on January 11.

Bynes was charged with reckless endangerment and marijuana possession last spring when building managers called the police. Amanda was seen smoking a joint in the lobby of her Manhattan apartment. When officers entered her apartment and question what was in her hand, she tossed it out the 36 floor story window.

Amanda told a judge she didn’t do anything wrong. After a string of erratic events Bynes was institutionalized and her mother Lynn was granted a temporary conservatorship over Amanda.

A Manhattan judge allowed for the dismissal of the bong-toss which means Amanda does not have to plead guilty. The terms of the agreement are that Amanda must attend counseling twice a week for the next six months and she cannot be arrested. If the “Hairspray” actress is arrested again the dismissal is revoked.

Amanda did not appear in court. An affidavit was filed on her behalf stating she understood the agreement.
