Amanda Bynes fled Los Angeles to New York City where at least she isn't tempted to drive everywhere (since she seems to have a tendency to hit and run), but she's still getting into trouble.

Bynes was arrested on suspicion of basically throwing a bong from her 36th floor apartment (okay, technically the charges she got hit with are reckless endangerment, criminal possession of marijuana and tampering with evidence). That arrest could cause legal problems for her back in Los Angeles.

Bynes is already on three years of informal probation because she was caught driving with a suspended license in a couple alleged hit-and-runs. And she still has another case pending against her related to an incident where she allegedly sideswiped a West Hollywood sheriff's deputy's patrol car while driving under the influence. Jane Robison, a spokeswoman for the district attorney's office, told the Los Angeles Times that case is still pending.

The Times says that since Bynes is on probation, a local judge could review the latest charges to hit her in Manhattan.

Bynes reportedly decided to bolt to New York after her parents confronted her about her increasing legal issues. TMZ reports it will be difficult for her parents to create an involuntary conservatorship a la Britney Spears.
