Amanda Bynes’ bong-tossing case could go out the window, much like her beloved bong. According to an E! News report on Jan. 10, the case could finally be dismissed. It looks like she can finally put her past behind her.
However, there are a few catches. The case will get dismissed only if she stays out of trouble for six months and seeks marijuana therapy.
A Manhattan District Attorney Office spoke with E! News about the case. They told the entertainment site that Bynes accepted the adjournment. She wants to comply with the terms of the case.
Bynes didn’t appear in court on Jan. 10. Her attorney, Gerald Shargel, appeared on behalf. Bynes’ attorney told reporters that he was satisfied with the outcome. He also mentioned that the 27-year-old is doing well but still has a “long road” ahead of her. “She’s making progress and we’re very pleased.”
Bynes was charged in May of last year for marijuana possession and reckless abandonment after building managers called New York City police. The troubled starlet was found smoking pot in the lobby of the apartment building. When officers arrived to her 36th floor apartment, she quickly threw her glass bong out the window. TMZ found the evidence of the bong on the sidewalk. Bynes claimed it was “just a vase”.
The former child star and actress had a tough year. She went through a series of erratic events on Twitter and on the streets of New York and California. After setting a fire in the driveway of a home in Thousand Oaks, CA., she was immediately institutionalized.
Amanda Bynes now wants to return to school to major in fashion design.
