NEW YORK — The bong-tossing case against Amanda Bynes will be dismissed if the actress stays out of trouble for six months and goes to counseling twice a week, a judge ruled Friday.

Bynes was charged in New York City last spring with reckless endangerment and marijuana possession after building managers called police because they said she was smoking pot in the lobby of her Manhattan apartment. When officers entered her 36th-floor apartment, they said they saw her heave a bong out the window.

The 27-year-old “Hairspray” star later appeared in court in a disheveled blond wig and said she didn’t do anything wrong. It was one episode in a string of erratic incidents involving Bynes last year.

A Manhattan judge allowed the adjournment in contemplation of dismissal Friday, which means the actress does not have to admit guilt. She must attend counseling twice a week for six months and cannot be rearrested, or the deal is revoked.
