Amanda Bynes: Cops sexually harassed me

Amanda Bynes heads for home after her May 23 arrest.

Amanda Bynes has taken to Twitter to claim she was "sexually harassed" during her arrest Thursday night in New York.

"I was sexually harassed by one of the cops the night before last which is who then arrested me," she wrote. "He lied and said I threw a bong out the window when I opened the window for fresh air. Hilarious. He slapped my vagina. Sexual harassment. Big deal."

Bynes said she reported the officer, writing, "I then called the cops on him. He handcuffed me, which I resisted, quite unlike any of the reports stated. Then I was sent to a mental hospital. Offensive."

According to The Hollywood Reporter, a New York Police Department spokesperson says Bynes' claim is being investigated by its Internal Affairs Bureau.

Bynes was arrested Thursday night after police were called to her apartment building reportedly because she was smoking marijuana in the lobby. While they were in Bynes' apartment, she reportedly threw a bong out her 36th floor window. The bong was never recovered.

Bynes spent the night in jail and was released without bail being set Friday morning.
