Amanda Bynes is speaking out after her May 23 arrest.

The troubled 27-year-old took to Twitter after being released from custody on Friday, saying she doesn't "drink or do drugs." Bynes was arrested and taken to Roosevelt Hospital to undergo a psychiatric evaluation before heading to a Midtown precinct to be processed after allegedly throwing a bong out of the window of her West 47th Street apartment.

The former Nickelodeon star showed off her chopped hair in her mugshot photo, which made the rounds yesterday. In the picture, Bynes can be seen wearing a black sweatshirt and a scowl as she poses for police.

She took to Twitter last night to share her thoughts on her arrest and startling mug, tweeting:

Bynes faces charges of reckless endangerment, criminal possession of marijuana and tampering with evidence. According to Celebuzz, although the judge waived bail yesterday, he warned her that he would impose a steep bail if Bynes gets arrested again or fails to show up for her next court appearance on July 9.

UPDATE: Amanda Bynes took to Twitter again this afternoon (May 25) to expand on the details of her arrest. She claims an NYPD officer sexual harassed her and that she did nothing wrong.

"Don't believe the reports about me being arrested. It's all lies," she writes. "I was sexually harassed by one of the cops the night before last which is who then arrested me. He lied and said I threw a bong out the window when I opened the window for fresh air. Hilarious. He slapped my vagina. Sexual harassment. Big deal. I then called the cops on him. He handcuffed me, which I resisted, quite unlike any of the reports stated. Then I was sent to a mental hospital. Offensive. I kept asking for my lawyer but they wouldn't let me. The cops were creepy. The cop sexually harassed me, they found no pot on me or bong outside my window. That's why the judge let me go. Don't believe any reports."
