Former actress Amanda Bynes, who has made headlines dozens of times in recent months for erratic behavior, was arrested at her apartment in New York City on Thursday for reckless endangerment, tampering with physical evidence, and physical possession of marijuana, law enforcement authorities confirm to "omg! Insider."

According to WNBC, the police were called to her Midtown Manhattan West 47th Street apartment following a report that a disorderly person was on the premises. The doorman reported that she was smoking marijuana in the lobby, but when police arrived, she was gone and had retreated to her apartment on the 36th floor.

Officers headed up to her residence and spotted a bong when Bynes opened the door to answer. She allegedly then tossed the bong out the window. Officers reported a "heavy" smell of marijuana in the apartment.

She was then reportedly taken to Roosevelt Hospital for a psychiatric evaluation before heading to a Midtown police station for processing, according to sources.

All of this comes during a particularly troubled week for the actress, who threatened to sue In Touch Weekly magazine for a cover story that she claims was riddled with lies. Bynes tweeted Wednesday morning:

A spokesperson for In Touch, replied: "The photos of Amanda Bynes inside this week's issue of In Touch speak for themselves. We at In Touch have done our due diligence and research on the photos and the article that accompanies them.

In Touch has not altered or photoshopped these photos in any way. Additionally, the photographer has assured In Touch that these photos of Amanda were not altered or photoshopped in any way prior to the magazine obtaining them and they are, in fact, of Amanda Bynes taken at Amanda's apartment in New York City. All of Amanda's claims pertaining to the photos in this week's In Touch are false."

According to TMZ, she was also rejected from boarding a private plane in Teterboro Airport in New Jersey over this past weekend for not having proper government issued ID.

No booking photo or police report has yet been made available.

Bynes remains under probation for driving in California with a suspended license, and still faces a pending suspicion of DUI case in Beverly Hills, California.
