Amanda Bynes placed on psychiatric hold
Toronto Sun ^ | July 23, 2013

Posted on 07/23/2013 8:09:38 PM PDT by rickmichaels

Troubled actress Amanda Bynes has been placed on an emergency psychiatric hold following an incident in Thousand Oaks, California on Monday.

Police were called to the neighbourhood after the Easy A star allegedly tried to start a fire in a resident's driveway, where she was accused of trespassing.

She was questioned over the small blaze and cops decided to take her into custody to undergo an involuntary mental evaluation, also known as a 5150 hold, reports TMZ.com.

Captain Don Aguilar of the Ventura County Sheriff's Department tells the New York Daily News: "Deputies investigated the incident and determined that (Bynes) met the criteria of 5150 (California Welfare & Institutions Code).

"She was detained and taken for a mental health evaluation."

Patients held on a 5150 order can only be kept under surveillance for up to 72 hours.

Byne's latest detainment occurred just a day after she was spoken to by police officers after allegedly turning up drunk outside an old people's home in Thousand Oaks on Sunday.

The two incidents are the latest in a string of woes for the actress - she is facing a charge of driving under the influence after allegedly crashing her car into a police vehicle last year, and a further accusation of driving on a suspended licence several months later. She is also accused of reckless endangerment, tampering with evidence and possessing marijuana after reportedly throwing a bong out of her apartment window during a police raid in May.

I feel kinda bad for her, she is acting like a couple people I knew in college, they were later diagnosed with having schizophrenia. It usually doesn’t manifest like this until after the individual is out of their teens.

Sad. She was talented and funny when she was a young teen. Show business tends to burn up the very young and spits them out. She’s hardly the first such to hit a deep bottom and won’t be the last.

She played the best friend of the main character in the film version of "Hairspray". She was adorably cute......at the time.

Poor girl

She played in ‘She’s the Man’ with Channing Tatum.

It is a wonderful contemporary take on Shakespeare’s comedy, ‘Twelfth Night’.

She did a great job and stands up next to Channing and brings out his comedic side rather than being a ken doll. And he is funny

This whole episode is sad

The kids say whenever, with few exceptions, kids go to Disney, they come out very whacked out

Sigh

lots of stars go batguano crazy but this was quick. There has to be some sort of substance abuse angle here because people with something to lose just don’t do this unless they’re incapacitated. She seemed like good kid and she was building a resume and then blammo, she retires, un-retires, and re-retires in order to be a rapper. She gets busted for DWI, does that hair, starts the crazy tweets..

I think allowing your kid to go into show business these days is tantamount to child abuse. Hollywood is an evil place.

I really thought she was cute. I’m really sad to see her go so publically nuts. She’s the type that got a little chubby but could’ve aged gracefully. And she’s still young. 27!!!

She looks like a late 40’s worn out stripper now. Good lord.

It’s a shame.

She was just minding her own business being wholesome All American Girl and a well balanced model citizen and one day she says that Barack and Michelle are ugly and the government sends her to be reprogrammed and a looney bin.

She used to have her own TV variety show. She was a precocious and highly intelligent child and teen.

Interrogative: Who or what is an Amanda Bynes? Why should I care?

Another Hollyweird bimbo with substance and alcohol problems that's a total psychological mess? Sounds like a bad rerun to me. I'll pass.

“The Amanda show.” My daughter, and therefore I, watched it when she was a preteen. To be honest I could sense something was a little “off” even then. Just chalked it up to her maybe being hyper by nature or that perhaps that’s what the director’s wanted. She could very well be schizophrenic, poor girl:(
