The edge of glory, she is on.
TMZ obtained the criminal complaint from the incident … which says a man in Amanda’s building told cops he witnessed the actress smoking a joint in the first floor lobby.
The report says an officer went to Amanda’s room … and saw a bong on the kitchen counter.
According to the report, the cop — wearing a “full police uniform” — asked Amanda about the bong … and that’s when the actress flipped out.
Here’s the cop’s narrative — “I observed [Amanda] grab said bong, run to the westbound-facing window, and throw it out the window where numerous pedestrians were walking on the 8 Avenue and West 47 Street sidewalks below.”
Bynes was immediately arrested for reckless endangerment, possession of weed and tampering with evidence.
So… now seems like a great time to revisit the leaders in the CB Most Eligible category of our celebrity death pool (STILL TIME TO SIGN UP!). It seems no one is too bullish about Lil Wayne’s future (I predict he’s going to make a comeback), but people generally have a positive outlook for Ke$ha, who drinks her own urine. Chart form:
No doubt Amanda Bynes will be picking up a few points following her arrest. You have until May 31 to pick your death squad. Cheers!
I’m opening up a Pandora’s box of fun-hating hipsters and meatheads in the comments, but I don’t care. It’s summer – yeah, even though it’s 30 degrees out and rainy right now – the shore is rebuilt (as you may have heard), and Jimmy Buffett’s Margaritaville opens today in Atlantic City. No, they’re not paying me to tell you this. Yes, I am a gigantic Parrothead and am treating this as a PSA to tell you to go drink some frozen concoctions that help you hang on. Hang on! Hang on! Hang on!
An upbeat piece from Bob Ford is your recommended reading on this miserable, rainy and damp Friday before the holiday morning: [Philly.com]
The problem, however, is trying to figure out what might keep that gap from growing to 11 games after two-thirds of the season or 17 games by the end. There is nothing about what has happened so far that was really a shock – with the exception of the poor start by Cole Hamels and the unforeseeable good one by Kyle Kendrick.
If those two surprises balance out, then the rest – old guys getting injured, role players underachieving, age eroding production – is pretty much what might have been expected, barring the miracle the organization hoped to receive.
Third baseman Michael Young has a decent, if somewhat empty, batting average, but the other offseason position-player acquisitions, particularly Ben Revere and Delmon Young, have been disappointments. Among the organization players looking to build something, only Domonic Brown’s offense has been encouraging, and even that is faint praise when you consider how much congratulation is being heaped on a .248 hitter.
Yeah, go read that.
2B Chase Utley has been diagnosed with a mild grade 1 oblique strain and placed on 15-day DL. A corresponding roster move will be made 2moro

You get your toilet cones out of here and I won’t jump over this counter and punch you in the brain: [Click2Houston.com]
The Houston Astros are winning, the hot dogs are selling, and all is right with the world at Minute Maid Park. But not inside a men’s restroom.
Cell phone video shows a ball park snow cone vendor sitting on a toilet in a stall with an entire box full of the products he’s about to sell. They sit on the bathroom floor right next to him.
The person who recorded the video and gave it to Local 2 said: “I couldn’t believe what I was seeing. This guy is taking a dump. There’s no doubt about it. What sane person could possibly think, yeah this is a good idea. I’ll just put the food that I’m about to sell on the floor.”
I’m not even sure it matters. Have you ever tried to eat one of those things? This guy could have shit directly onto the sno-cones and you still wouldn’t have been able to pick it out of the icy mass with that shitty spoon they give you. You’d just get a mouthful of sugar and food coloring and then be disappointed and cry about it because JOEY GOT THE SCREWBALL* AND JESSIE GOT THE CHACO TACO AND MY SNO-CONE SUCKS!
*Screwball is far and away the best ice cream truck treat. Don’t even think about arguing that fact.
A couple months ago we showed you a picture of Eric Wellwood’s bloody skate after Wellwood had an artery and his Achilles sliced by a skate. Today, he got his cast off and began rehab, and his leg looks predictably gross.
Watch the video after the jump. “I only had a certain amount of time before I bled out.” Continue Reading…
I love our world sometimes. Tim McManus is reporting that Michael Vick will receive a key to Atlantic City. From Mayor Lorenzo Langford: [Philly Mag]
“Michael Vick is caring and compassionate enough to reach out to our city when we were at our lowest point during the immediate aftermath of Super Storm Sandy,” said Mayor Langford. “Twelve hours after a nationally televised Monday Night Football game, he was lifting the spirits of our residents confined to shelters with his generosity’ particularly our young people.
“And now, here he is again, helping us to spread the message that Atlantic City is open for business and ready for the summer season, all while continuing to encourage our youth to make positive contributions to the community.”
A few years ago, Vick was given a key to, of all places, Dallas. He accepted it, but the mayor quickly backtracked and said that Vick was given the key without his knowledge. These keys are solely symbolic, of course, and, sadly, they wouldn’t even open a good chastity belt. But, FOX Editor Kyle Carmean may have put it best regarding Vick being given the key to Atlantic City: “Khalif Wyatt had the ultimate key to AC.” That he did, Kyle. That he did.
