STORY HIGHLIGHTS
  • Bynes has had numerous run-ins with the law in recent years
  • Police say she threw a bong out the window of her apartment
  • Bynes is charged with a felony tampering with physical evidence
  • Her representatives have not responded to CNN's request for comment

(CNN) -- Adding to what's becoming a lengthy list of run-ins with the law, New York police arrested actress Amanda Bynes on Thursday night after she allegedly tossed drug paraphernalia out the window of her 36th floor Manhattan apartment.

Officers were called to her theater district abode after her building manager reported the 27-year-old star was smoking an "illegal substance" in the lobby, Christopher Pisano, a New York police spokesman, said.

Bynes had headed back to her apartment by the time police arrived, but she let officers in when they knocked on the door, according to Pisano.

"Spring Breakers" is quite a departure for Selena Gomez, who started her career on "Barney & Friends." The actress later made a name for herself in Disney's "Wizards of Waverly Place" and family-friendly Disney flicks such as "Another Cinderella Story." Gomez has shown she's growing up by taking on more mature projects like her Funny or Die video, "Fifty Shades of Blue." Even her red carpet fashion choices and relationship with Justin Bieber, which ended earlier this year, separate the actress from her Disney persona.

Once inside, the officers noticed a bong and other marijuana paraphernalia sitting on the coffee table, which Bynes immediately started to throw out the window.

Police have charged her with tampering with physical evidence, reckless endangerment and criminal possession of marijuana, Pisano said. Bynes was charged with endangerment because the paraphernalia could have hit someone below, he said.

The tampering charge is a felony. The two others are misdemeanors.

Bynes, wearing a blonde wig, was seen walking into NYPD's Central Booking from the back of a police van on Thursday evening.

Bynes' representatives did not immediately respond to CNN's request for comment.

The star of "Easy A" and "Hairspray" has lived in New York since last fall, having moved there from the Los Angeles area.

Bynes has a DUI case pending in Southern California, while a pair of separate hit-and-run incidents against her were dismissed late last year. Earlier this month, she was sentenced to three years probation for driving on a suspended license.
