Amanda Bynes was arrested Thursday night at her New York apartment for reckless endangerment and underwent a psychiatric evaluation at the hospital, according to a report.

The former child star, 27, who has a history of DUI and other automobile-related cases in Los Angeles courts, has attracted attention for a series of provocative Twitter postings and almost daily media accounts of unusual behavior.

Officers responding to a report of a disorderly person arrested her at her Manhattan high-rise apartment after she threw a bong out the window, News 4 New York reports.

She underwent a psychiatric evaluation at Roosevelt Hospital and then was processed at the police station, according to reports.

Fox 5 News reports Bynes also was booked with marijuana possession for allegedly smoking marijuana in the lobby of her building. And she was booked for tampering with evidence for allegedly tossing the bong from the 36th-floor window, according to the station.

In September 2012 she told PEOPLE that she was "doing amazing" and was moving to New York to launch a fashion line.
