Bynes leaving jail on Friday, not looking very good at all.
Troubled starlet Amanda Bynes was released from jail Friday after being arrested the previous night tossing what appeared to be a bong out of her 36th floor New York apartment. Well, she says it was "just a vase," but we don't see how that makes it any better.
Police were called to her building when staff saw her smoking weed in the lobby, the New York Daily News reports. They came to her apartment and caught the place reeking of reefer.

They saw the bong — it was in plain view. It looks like she realized they saw it so she took it and threw it out the window." Full Story
