NYPD: Amanda Bynes was not touched inappropriately

What's this? Could Amanda Bynes' plans to sue the NYPD be derailed?

What's this? Could Amanda Bynes' plans to sue the NYPD be derailed?

The New York Police Department said in a statement released Tuesday that contrary to the star's claims, they found "no evidence" that an officer had touched Amanda Bynes inappropriately during her arrest last Thursday.

"Internal Affairs investigators have found no evidence to corroborate Ms. Bynes' allegations," said the NYPD. "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."

On Saturday, Bynes, 27, sent another spurt of maniacal tweets including one accusing police of touching her inappropriately during her arrest. She claimed the officer, "slapped my vagina. Sexual harassment. Big deal."

The actress, who underwent a psychiatric evaluation following her arrest, was charged Friday with reckless endangerment, tampering with evidence, and unlawful possession of marijuana. Following her stint in court in sweats and a disheveled wig, Bynes shared her plans to sue the police department for a number of offenses including, "illegally entering my apartment, lying about drugs on me and lying about me tampering with non existent drug paraphernalia."

Bynes will return to court in July.
