FOX 11 has learned exclusively that it was Amanda Bynes "mangled" hair that prompted the arresting officers to take her to a New York City hospital for a psych evaluation first being taken to a midtown police precinct. A source within the NYPD tells Fox once the actress removed her wig it was obvious she had been cutting her own hair and it looked "mangled," an indication she may need medical attention. Her short hair can be seen in the 27 yr old's mug shot.
FOX 11 has also learned there is an internal affairs component to the Amanda Bynes investigation. Sources tell us officers from NYPD's Internal Affairs division were at the Manhattan apartment building Friday where Bynes was arrested Thursday night. They are investigating possible claims the actress may have made against the officers who arrested her. Bynes was taken into custody for allegedly smoking pot in the lobby of her apartment building and throwing a bong out of the window of her high-rise apartment. She was arrested and charged with reckless endangerment. The former Nickolodeon star was arraigned in court and released on her own recognizance, despite prosecutors requesting she be held on $1,000 bail.
FOX 11's Lauren Sivan will have more around 5:45pm during Studio 11 LA Friday.
