NYPD: Amanda Bynes Was Not Sexually Assaulted by Police

Photo by Jason Merritt/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- New York police are denying accusations by Amanda Bynes that they sexually harassed the actress during her drug arrest last Thursday.

In a statement provided to ABC News, NYPD Deputy Commissioner Paul J. Browne said, "NYPD Internal Affairs investigators have found no evidence to corroborate Ms. Bynes's 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."

Bynes, 27, was arrested last Thursday after police responded to a 911 call about a woman smoking marijuana in her apartment building lobby.  When they arrived, they were led to Bynes’s residence, where officers reported smelling marijuana and said Bynes tossed a bong out of her apartment window.  Bynes later posted a note on Twitter in which she said an unidentified officer "slapped my vagina" during the arrest, adding "sexual harassment." 

On Monday, Bynes futher tweeted, "I'm so offended but I am so educated that I know cops cannot illegally enter my apartment, sexually harass me, arrest me, take me to a MENTAL HOSPITAL, then lock me up for a crime I didn't commit."

The actress, who has previously been charged with DUI, has displayed erratic behavior recently, tweeting provocative photos of herself and dramatically changing her look.  Her next court date has been set for July 9.

Charlie Sheen Won't Face Criminal Charges for Plaza Hotel Incident

Photo Courtesy - Jeff Vespa/WireImage(NEW YORK) -- Charlie Sheen will not face criminal charges for trashing his room at the Plaza Hotel in New York City in October.

A New York City Police Department official told E! Online, "There have been no arrests.  That case is closed."

Police investigated the incident involving the Two and a Half Men star after the woman Sheen was with, porn star Capri Anderson, filed a criminal complaint alleging she was the victim of assault and harassment.  Police arrived on the scene after receiving a call from hotel security and found an "emotionally disturbed individual" shortly after 2:00 a.m.  Sheen was later taken to a hospital for observation.

An NYPD insider told E! Online the complaint was not referred to prosecutors because Anderson waited an entire month to file a police report after telling officers at the scene that she was never in danger of being physically harmed.  Anderson has hinted that she would file a lawsuit against Sheen, but has yet to do so.
