Amanda Bynes has been attracting attention and concern for her erratic behavior in recent months – culminating in her arrest Thursday night for allegedly smoking pot in her lobby and tossing a bong out her 36th-floor New York apartment window.
And a resident of her building says her strangeness is even more magnified up close.
"She just stares at people. Her eyes look really messed up. It's very clear [to me that] she's not just smoking pot," the resident tells PEOPLE.
The former child star, 27, was released Friday morning following her arraignment on charges of reckless endangerment, tampering with evidence and unlawful possession of marijuana, and the building source made it clear she won't be welcomed back by the neighbors with open arms.

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.

Amanda Bynes's Friday morning court appearance was short and sweet, following a long night spent in custody after her arrest in her New York apartment building the night before.
Shortly after 11 a.m., the former child star, 27, took the stand, wearing a blonde wig, gray sweat pants and a baggy black sweater – and looking blasé.
She faces charges of reckless endangerment and marijuana possession for allegedly smoking marijuana in the lobby of her building.

In a complete reversal, Jodi Arias addressed the jury on Tuesday and urged them to sentence her to life in prison so her family doesn't have to suffer any more.
"I've made public statements that preferred the death penalty. I lacked perspective," Arias, dressed in black, said in the Phoenix courtroom.
"I can't in good conscience ask you to send me to death because of them," Arias said as she pointed to her parents and her baby sister, Angela, who now has a daughter of her own (Arias says she has only met the child from behind heavy glass). "That would be tantamount to suicide ... Please, please don't do that to them. I want everyone's healing to begin and for their pain to stop."

When Utah police led 20 searchers and five cadaver dogs onto a property in Salem, Ore., this week, they were acting on suspicions that Susan Cox Powell was buried there – and that the man who buried her was not her late husband, Josh Powell, but rather his brother, a politician and graduate student who later committed suicide.
Susan's father, Charles Cox – who has worked tirelessly with authorities to find his daughter – shares with PEOPLE that West Valley City, Utah, police believe Josh's brother, Michael Powell, was an accomplice in her murder.
According to Cox and other sources, detectives believe Josh drove the couple's Town & Country van hundreds of miles northwest in a snowstorm in December 2009 as his and Susan's two young sons, Charlie and Braden, slept in the backseat. They believe Josh turned Susan's body over to Michael, who buried her.

Modern Family star Ariel Winter's family life has been more drama than comedy this year – but the young actress says she's grateful she has a strong support system in her sister.
"My sister is the most amazing woman I've ever met in my life," Winter, 15, told PEOPLE at the USA Network 2013 Upfronts in New York. "If I could be half the woman she is ... she's kind of who I want to be like."
The teen star doesn't just reserve admiration for her older sister, Shanelle Gray, 34 – who is currently in court-ordered care of her famous sister following abuse allegations against Winter's mother, Chrisoula Workman – but she also praises her extended family.
