Amanda Bynes is currently hospitalized on a 5150 hold after starting a small fire in the driveway of someone’s home Monday night, reports TMZ. The fire department responded to the home in Thousand Oaks, CA last night and called the sheriff’s department after finding Amanda standing in the driveway next to the campfire.
Sheriff’s determined she needed to be hospitalized on a 5150 hold based on how she answered them. A 5150 hold is an involuntary hospitalization for mental evaluation. She can only be held for 72 hours though.
TMZ just spoke to the woman whose driveway Amanda built the fire on, and she said she had no idea what was going on until cops knocked on her front door. 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 said no.
Cops then described to her that there was a young lady in her yard, who had lit a fire and was carrying a ‘little red gas tank.’ The homeowner says cops told her Amanda had burned part of her clothing.
Above are photos were taken at Bloomingdales in Santa Monica just hours before the hospitalization Cops confronted Amanda Bynes outside a retirement community after she got into an argument with a cab driver Sunday night. Amanda was trying to get into an old folks home in Thousand Oaks when management at the place turned her away because they felt she was drunk and accused her of trespassing.
However, the retirement community was nice enough to call a taxi for Amanda, but when she got into the cab she said ..’Get me the f**k out of here ..I don’t have any money.’ Then the driver kicked her out. Amanda walked back toward the retirement community and then cops were called..
Amanda told the taxi driver that Amanda was at the retirement village to visit a relative: ‘Her parents are absolutely sick with worry about their daughter. They are now considering going to a judge and attempting to get a conservatorship of Amanda. They have previously met with lawyers to discuss the possibility of taking legal control of Amanda’s life.
It’s a truly devastating situation for Amanda’s parents and their biggest concern is the health and safety of her. She could be released whenever doctors determine she is no longer a danger to herself, or others. If Rick and Lynn are going to seek a conservatorship, they need to act very, very quickly.’
