After Amanda Bynes' arrest last week, she is speaking out on her behalf, saying that the arrest was not only wrongful, but that she was also sexually assaulted by the police who arrested her. She says she and her lawyer are taking the situation very seriously and plan to sue the NYPD for sexual assualt, in addition to her apartment complex for "lying about smoking" in the building.
Over the weekend, she tweeted:
Don't believe the reports about me being arrested. It's all lies. I was sexually harassed by one of the cops the... twitpl.us/t/FdV— Amanda Bynes (@AmandaBynes) May 25, 2013

A final post on her Twitter account she says:
"For once and for all, this is the last thing I'll say about the mistaken arrest. I'm suing NYPD for illegally entering my apartment, lying about drugs on me and lying about me tampering with non existent drug paraphernalia, then I'm suing for being put into a mental hospital against my will, then locked up overnight for coming home after a facial and working out with my trainer like the good girl that I am. I'm allergic to alcohol and drugs and don't partake in any of the above. I'm so offended by all of this but so proud to not be a drug or alcohol user. I don't need to talk about this anymore. My lawyer and I are taking this offense so seriously! Everything they did was against the law and The judge saw that there was no drugs on me or proof of any type of bong or mental illness (I was so offended to even be taken to a mental hospital and they would not let me call my lawyer until the next day after being in jail all night, then I went to court and was immediately released because the judge saw that I was wrongly arrested. The cops found no proof of any type of drug use or evidence of drug paraphernalia such as a bong in or around my apartment) I'm also suing my apartment complex for lying about me smoking in my building. I'm free forever! You can't lock up an innocent person! Thanks for caring! Look forward to seeing me in music videos! I'm getting in shape and getting a nose job! I'm looking forward to a long and wonderful career as a singer/rapper!"
