Los Angeles - Amanda Bynes' bong-tossing case was officially dismissed on Monday.

The 28-year-old actress won't be punished for allegedly throwing a marijuana bong out her apartment window last year after she complied with a deal to stay out of trouble for six months and attend counselling twice a week.

The troubled star was not present during the short hearing at Manhattan Criminal Court today, but her lawyer Gerald Shargel submitted an affidavit claiming Amanda had met the court's initial requirements.

Mr Shargel told reporters after the hearing: "It was formally dismissed and formally sealed. The judge complimented her success."

The Hairspray beauty was charged with tampering with physical evidence, reckless endangerment and criminal possession of marijuana in May 2013 after she allegedly threw a bong from the 36th floor of her apartment in New York in front of arresting officers after her neighbours complained she was smoking drugs in the building.

At the time, Amanda denied any wrong-doing and claimed it was a flower pot that flew from her window.

However, the glass from the bong was only retrieved a few days later and had been contaminated by the weather, so there was no proof that it was the same item thrown by the actress.

Amanda, who underwent a stint in rehab late last year following months of erratic behaviour, is currently enrolled at the Fashion Institute of Design of Merchandising, and has no plans to reignite her Hollywood career.
