Amanda has been hospitalized by the police after she was caught starting a small fire in the driveway of a private Thousand Oaks, Calif. home. HollywoodLife.com has all the EXCLUSIVE details of why she was considered a ‘danger to herself.’
Amanda Bynes has moved on from calling people ugly, and is now starting illegal fires! The What I Like About You star was hospitalized and placed on a 5150 hold July 22, after police found her beside a home-made campfire in the drive way of a California home. She seemed so disorientated that she was placed on psychiatric hold for 72 hours.
Amanda Bynes Placed On Involuntary Psychiatric Hold
Amanda, 27, is currently in the hospital on a 5150 hold, after she was found beside a small fire in the driveway of a house in Thousand Oaks, Calif., reports TMZ.
Sergeant Eric Buschow of the Ventura County Sheriff’s Dept tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY:
Amanda Bynes is currently hospitalized on a 5150 hold. At first the fire dept was called on the scene and then the deputy’s office. She had started a small fire on someone’s driveway near the sidewalk. It was not her home. After being questioned, it was determined that she met the criteria to be put on a 5150 hold. This means she was either a danger to herself, a danger to other or/and gravely disabled. She will be evaluated at the facility and can hold her for up to 72 hours.
How scary! While this is truly shocking, perhaps it’s also the right thing for Amanda, because it appears she really needs help.
The woman who’s home it was said that she did not know what was to going on, reports TMZ. She says cops asked her, “Do you know anyone by the name of Amanda Bynes, or why she would have some vendetta against you?” She did not know who Amanda was, but she said she was carrying a “little red gas tank.” The homeowner says cops told her Amanda had burned part of her clothing.
Britney Spears is another star who was placed on a 5150 hold in 2008, before she was placed on conservatorship.
