Amanda Bynes: Under 5150 Psychiatric Hold

Posted Tuesday July 23, 2013 11:37 AM GMT

Things have gone from really bad to even worse for Amanda Bynes, as she’s been placed on a 5150 psychiatric hold at a Los Angeles hospital.

It seems the “Hairspray” actress decided to set a fire in a driveway next to a Thousand Oaks, California residence late Monday night, and when the fire department arrived they found her standing next to the blaze.

As a result, the cops were called and Amanda was taken into custody and placed under the mental health hold, which normally lasts for 72 hours.

Bynes was also involved in a strange exchange with police outside a Thousand Oaks retirement home when she showed up drunk earlier in the evening.
