The sad lurid saga of Amanda Bynes continues unabated.
The actress was placed on an involuntary psychiatric hold also known as 5150 in Los Angeles on Monday after setting a fire in a driveway according to TMZ.com. She can be held only for 72 hours.
According to Captain Don Aguilar of the Ventura County Sheriff's Office Amanda Bynes was involved in a disturbance in a residential neighborhood last night in Thousand Oaks in the 200 block of Avenida De Los Arboles. Deputies investigated the incident and determined that she met the criteria of 5150 WI (California Welfare Institutions Code). She was detained and taken for a mental health evaluation.
Back in January 2008 Britney Spears also was placed on lockdown for 72 hours after refusing to hand her younger son Jayden over to ex husband Kevin Federline.
Earlier this spring Bynes was charged with reckless endangerment and attempted tampering with physical evidence after allegedly throwing a marijuana bong from the window of her 36th floor Manhattan apartment.
The actress is known on Twitter for her odd cryptic posts. The most recent one dated July 19 drake is gorgeous.USA NOW Is the Pope safe USA NOW videoJul 23 2013
