The New York Police Department Tuesday denied accusations by former child star Amanda Bynes that she had been groped while being arrested last week on drug charges at her Manhattan home.

"NYPD Internal Affairs investigators have found no evidence to corroborate Ms. Bynes' allegations," police spokesman Paul J. Browne said. "To the contrary, a credible civilian witness who was with the officers throughout told investigators that no one touched Ms. Bynes inappropriately or otherwise engaged in misconduct at any time."

Bynes, 27, responded by tweeting, "My lawyer is getting my case dropped! There was no proof of sexual harassment or drugs. Instead of me asking for the cop to be arrested for sexual harassment, I want my case dropped as well."

Meanwhile, TMZ.com reported Tuesday that one of its producers had found what he believed to be the bong police say Bynes tossed out the window of her rental apartment.

Officers were investigating, the website said.
