Amanda Bynes is exhibiting signs of schizophrenia and medical professionals seek a 2-week extension on her 5150 psychiatric hold so doctors can properly diagnose her, reports TMZ. Amanda lit a fire on an elderly woman’s driveway in Thousand Oaks, CA around 8:38 PM on Monday night and burned her gasoline soaked dog. Amanda’s parents will now ask a judge to put the 27-year-old in a conservatorship like Britney Spears.
Eyewitness: ‘I see this girl with her pant leg on fire and a gas can trailing fire through the driveway. It looked like her. It sounded like her. She had a wig on. I quickly pull over to go help her and when I got over here, she put the fire out on her leg and was rushing over to her dog.
I kicked the gas can over and moved it to the middle of the driveway so nothing else would catch on fire. And I said, ‘Are you OK?’ She was kind of frantic and discombobulated, and many people rushed over to try to assess the situation and when I looked back up, she was gone.’
When he saw her, she was on her phone and about to get into a cab: ‘I told the driver, ‘Don’t let her in. There’s a fire,’ I tried stopping her and she was like, ‘Please don’t touch me, don’t move.’ Then she got in and [the driver] just took off. Squad cars chased after her and I don’t know what happened next.’
Amanda Bynes accidentally drenched her pet Pomeranian with gasoline while building a fire in a residential neighborhood then raced to a nearby liquor store to clean him. In the liquor store she darted straight for a restricted ‘employees only’ area. while holding the dog in her outstretched arms.
