Amanda Bynes appeared in a New York City courthouse this morning following her arrest last night, and she was formally charged with marijuana possession, reckless endangerment and attempted evidence tampering.

Though prosecutors requested that the 27-year-old actress be held in lieu of $1,000 bail, Manhattan Criminal Court Judge Neil Ross decided to release her without bail. Despite appearing lenient with the starlet, Ross warned Bynes that if she missed her July 9 court date, an arrest warrant would be issued and he would set “very significant bail.”

According to the NY Daily News, Bynes engaged in an animated conversation with her attorney in the court’s soundproof box, and when she wasn’t talking, "she was making crazy faces, mumbling to herself and staring blankly through the glass."

A man in Amanda's building filed a criminal complaint after witnessing her smoking a joint in the first floor lobby, and when officers went to Amanda's room, they noticed a bong on the kitchen counter. According to the report, the cop asked Amanda about the bong, at which point she "grab[bed] said bong, [ran] to the westbound-facing window, and [threw] it out the window where numerous pedestrians were walking on the 8 Avenue and West 47 Street sidewalks below." According to TMZ, Bynes told the judge she didn't throw a bong out of her window -- rather, it was "just a vase."

Last night Bynes was held temporarily for psychiatric testing at the Roosevelt Hospital, she was booked at the police station, where she took two mugshots -- one with her platinum blonde wig, one without.

Bynes left court just after 11am, and she hopped in a taxi and took off. Hopefully she can see where she's going!
