Amanda Bynes attended court Friday morning (donning her wig and all), following an arrest last night for alleged reckless endangerment, tampering with evidence and possession of marijuana.

Assistant District Attorney Chikaelo Ibeabuchi stated in the hearing that Bynes told police she had tossed a vase out of her apartment window, and not a bong as was originally reported.

The 27-year-old was still in the same attire from last night and looked disheveled and anxious as she constantly readjusted her wig.

Bynes' attorney Andrew Friedman asked that the star be "released on her own recognizance because the police unlawfully followed her into her apartment."

The judge was "stern" throughout the morning hearing and when Bynes' public defender said that she had never been in trouble before, the Judge quipped, "not in this state."

The "She's the Man" star was arraigned and released and has her next court date, which she must be in attendance for, on July 9. But it looks like Bynes could be in for more trouble.

Burbank District Attorney Denny Wei told E! News that he could file a motion claiming that Bynes violated her probation from an earlier case. The actress is currently serving three years summary probation after pleading no contest on May 9 to driving with a suspended license.

"We get info from the prosecuting agency, in this case the NYPD, and we will review the report and make the determination whether to file a probation violation with the court," he revealed.

Should Wei find that Bynes ultimately did violate her probation, the maximum penalty she would face would be 6 months in jail and a $1,000 fine.
