"Where is the defendant?" Boyar testily queried of Bynes' attorney, Gerald Shargel. "Is she still in the hospital?"

The judge said that Bynes must appear for the next hearing “or else a warrant will be ordered," throwing the book at the former Nickelodeon star.

However, the prosecutor told the judge that for Thursday’s absence they didn’t feel extreme measures were necessary.

"Judge, we are not asking for a bench warrant."

Bynes’ attorney spoke outside the courtroom about a potential deal that might happen.

"We're just trying to achieve a fair and just disposition.”
