A New York City judge has tossed out actress Amanda Bynes' infamous bong-throwing case now that she has completed rehab and stayed out of trouble for six month.

Bynes, 28, the former Nickelodeon actress who co-starred with John Travolta and Nikki Blonsky in the movie version of "Hairspray" in 2007, saw her case dismissed during a hearing in Manhattan Criminal Court, according to the New York Daily News.

Bynes had been accused of throwing a bong from the 36th floor window of The Biltmore on May 23, 2013, the Daily News reported. Authorities were called when she lit up a joint in the building's lobby. She had been charged with reckless endangerment, tampering with evidence and criminal possession of marijuana, according to E! News.

"It was formally dismissed and formally sealed," Gerald Shargel, Bynes attorney, told reporters after the hearing. "The judge complimented her success."

Before the bong-throwing incident, Bynes had her license suspended after she was arrested on suspicion to driving while intoxicated and not appearing for numerous court dates for unpaid tickets.

Lynn Bynes, the actresses mother, told E! News in May that her daughter's problems, including unusual postings on social media, were caused by smoking marijuana.

"Amanda has no mental illness whatsoever. She has never been diagnosed as schizophrenic or bipolar," Lynn Bynes said, adding that her daughter "is very sorry for all the hurtful tweets, statements and actions that occurred while she was under the influence of marijuana."

Bynes first appeared on television at 13 when she starred on Nickelodeon's "The Amanda Show" and went on to appear in the TV series "What I Like About You," noted CBS News. Along with "Hairspray," the actress also performed in movies "What a Girl Wants" and "She's the Man."

Bynes has been attending classes at the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising in Orange County and plans to continue studying there. She tweeted about her time there in March.
