NYPD Deny Amanda Bynes Sexual Harassment Claims
Police have issued a statement disputing her arrest accusations...
TheAmanda Bynes that she was 'groped' during her recent arrest.
Last week, the Hairspray star was booked on charges of reckless endangerment, tampering with evidence and criminal possession of marijuana, with Bynes denying that she threw a bong out of her NYC apartment, adding hat she was 'sexually harassed' by cops.
Amanda later threatened to sue the NYPD for "illegally entering [her] apartment, lying about drugs on [her] and lying about [her] tampering with non existent drug paraphernalia".
A spokesperson for the NYPD has now denied the 27-year old's accusations in an official statement, where they said: "Internal Affairs investigators have found no evidence to corroborate Ms Bynes's allegations.
"To the contrary, a credible civilian witness who was with the officers throughout told investigators that no-one touched Ms Bynes inappropriately or otherwise engaged in misconduct at any time."
The She's The Man actress has since threatened to due US celebrity gossip website TMZ after they posted a snap of a glass outside her flat, which they claimed was a shattered bong - something Amanda strongly denies.
In reaction to the story, she tweeted: "Tmz is being sued as we speak. That's fake! They and NYPD is trying to frame me for a crime I didn't commit. There was no drug paraphanilia in or around my apartment on the day I was arrested.
"Someone went to my apartment and photographed glass outside. This is the smutiest site of all. I've already forgotten about it! I'm drug free and love talking about it!"
Bynes later added: "I'm suing Tmz for staging fake bong photos. It's not even a bong! The photo shows it's clearly a clear and blue stained glass Ciroc bottle from some random street. You can't create fake evidence long they released me after they searched my apartment and the street and found no proof of drug use or drug paraphanilia inside or outside my apartment.
"They're a lame excuse for a news source. They're criminals and should be arrested! I was treated like an animal by the cops and I will do anything to receive justice. Tmz are liars and criminals for creating false evidence! My lawyer is sending a lawsuit to their office."
