NEW YORK (CBSNewYork/AP) —  Score one for Amanda Bynes.

A judge has dismissed the bong-tossing case against the embattled actress.

Bynes’ lawyer appeared in court Monday but Bynes was not present. The case was sealed after the dismissal.

The judge had previously said the charges would be dismissed if Bynes stayed out of trouble for six months and went to counseling twice a week.

Attorney Gerald Shargel submitted an affidavit saying Bynes had complied with the court’s requirements.

Bynes was charged last year with reckless endangerment and marijuana possession. Building managers called police because they said she was smoking pot in the lobby of her Manhattan apartment.

When officers entered her 36th-floor apartment, they said they saw her heave a bong out the window.

Shargel said outside court that the episode is now behind her.
