NEW YORK (AP) -- Actress Amanda Bynes was charged with reckless endangerment after police say she heaved a marijuana bong out of an apartment window in New York City.

She appeared in Manhattan court Friday wearing a long, disheveled blond wig.

She was released on her own recognizance and given a July 9 court date.

Police were called to her apartment building on West 47th Street on Thursday. Police say a building official complained that Bynes was smoking marijuana and rolling a joint in the lobby.

The officers went to her apartment where they say they saw heavy smoke and a bong that Bynes threw out the window. Her attorney says she denies the accusation.

Bynes starred in Nickelodeon's "All That" and has also starred in several films, including 2010's "Easy A."
