    Amanda Bynes made a very serious claim against the NYPD this weekend when she tweeted that a police officer sexually assaulted her during her arrest Thursday.

    But on Tuesday, after conducting their own investigation, the NYPD fired back against the actress's allegations and denied any wrongdoing.

    "NYPD Internal Affairs investigators have found no evidence to corroborate Ms. Bynes' allegations," Deputy Commissioner Paul J. Browne told E! News in a statement. "To the contrary, a credible civilian witness who was with the officers throughout told investigators that none touched Ms. Bynes inappropriately or otherwise engaged in misconduct at any time."

    The 27-year-old former child star was arrested Thursday for marijuana possession and allegedly throwing a bong from her NYC apartment window, but she's telling a very different story about what went down. "I'm so offended by all of this but so proud to not be a drug or alcohol user," she tweeted Monday. "I'm suing NYPD for illegally entering my apartment, lying about drugs on me and lying about me tampering with non existent drug paraphernalia."

    Her next court date is scheduled for July 9.
