No evidence of abuse on Amanda Bynes

Los Angeles - No evidence has been found to support Amanda Bynes' claim she was "sexually harassed" by a police officer when she was arrested last Thursday.

The Easy A actress had accused one of the arresting officers of entering her New York City apartment illegally, slapping her vagina and lying about her throwing a bong - a device used to smoke dagga - out of the window in front of him.

After Amanda made her complaint, Internal Affairs investigated the serious allegations made by the 27-year-old star but could find nothing to corroborate her claims and have concluded all officers acted appropriately and professionally.

Adamant she did nothing wrong

A statement released by the New York Police Department (NYPD) said: ''Internal Affairs investigators have found no evidence to corroborate Ms Bynes' allegations.

"To the contrary, a credible civilian witness who was with the officers throughout told investigators that none touched Ms Bynes inappropriately or otherwise engaged in misconduct at any time.''

Amanda was charged with attempted evidence tampering, reckless endangerment and dagga possession in court last Friday, after being arrested at her New York City apartment, but she is adamant she did nothing wrong and was unfairly targeted by police.

Bipolar or schizophrenic

Amanda's behaviour has been getting increasing strange in the last several months and she has been in trouble with the law including being charged with driving on a suspended licence and having her car impounded.

She was also involved in two bizarre episodes last September, locking herself in a store changing room for nearly two hours and refusing to come out and stripping off during a gym class.

Amanda's parents Lynn and Rick are worried she is bipolar or schizophrenic and reportedly want her to seek medical help but they cannot force her to undergo a mental evaluation.
