NEW YORK

Actress Amanda Bynes appeared disheveled in a long blond wig and sweats Friday in a criminal court where she was charged with reckless endangerment after police said she heaved a marijuana bong out the window of her 36th-floor Manhattan apartment.

The 27-year-old former child star was arrested Thursday evening after building officials at her midtown apartment called police to complain she was rolling a joint and smoking pot in the lobby.

The officers went to her apartment where they said they saw heavy smoke and a bong sitting on the kitchen counter. They said she tossed the bong out the window in front of them, prosecutors said.

She then said to police: “It was just a vase,” according to Manhattan assistant district attorney Chikaelo Ibeabuchi.

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

Thursday, Bynes was held overnight at a police precinct. She pulled up to court Friday morning in a squad car where she was greeted by a crush of media.

She also was charged with attempted tampering with evidence and unlawful possession of marijuana, all misdemeanors.

Bynes rose to fame starring in Nickelodeon’s “All That” and has starred in several films, including 2010’s “Easy A.”
