At 4 p.m., the superintendent of the 47th St. building called police to report that Bynes had been smoking marijuana in the lobby.

When officers showed up at her door, the former Nickelodeon star ran back inside the apartment and grabbed a large, glass water pipe, that she tossed out the window to the street below.

Bynes, 27, was arrested and taken to Roosevelt Hospital for a psychiatric evaluation.  She was later charged with criminal possession of marijuana, reckless endangerment and tampering with evidence.

This comes after her latest incident last weekend when she tried to pass security at a New Jersey airport without a valid driver’s license, using a Google search on her phone as proof of her identity.

Bynes also has a pending DUI case in Beverly Hills.
