See Amanda Bynes's Mug Shot

Posted on

Amanda Bynes is almost unrecognizable in photos of her arrest Thursday night and her subsequent appearance in court on Friday, thanks to the unkempt platinum blonde wig she’s wearing.

So what’s under all that hair?

Although the NYPD is not releasing a mug shot, a police officer who was escorting Bynes, 27, to her court appearance was holding paperwork, including a photo of the former child star without the wig – and her hair is super short.

Bynes was arrested at her New York apartment Thursday and booked for possession of marijuana, tampering with evidence and reckless endangerment after allegedly throwing a bong out of her 36th-floor window.

In court, her lawyer, Andrew Friedman, said his client denies throwing a bong out of a window and claims the police illegally followed her into her apartment.

Judge Neil Ross, of the Criminal Court of the City of New York, denied a prosecutor’s request for bail and Bynes was released.

Ross did tell Bynes if she gets arrested again, or fails to return to court for her next appearance, which the judge set for July 9, he is going to “set a significant bail.”
