Professionals get involved after her alleged act of arson…
Can’t say we didn’t see this coming. After a year marked with Twitter disses, creepy wigs and random acts of, well, randomness, Bynes has finally earned the right kind of attention. The kind that, hopefully, will set the former teen star on the road to recovery. Details are scarce, but apparently she may or may not be responsible for setting her neighbor’s driveway on fire.
via Chicago Tribune:
Troubled actress Amanda Bynes has been taken to a hospital for involuntary psychiatric care after the former teen star was involved in a disturbance in Southern California, authorities said on Tuesday. Don Aguilar, a spokesman for the Ventura County Sheriff’s Department, declined to describe the incident that prompted deputies to take Bynes into custody and commit her for psychiatric evaluation.But local media reported that the 27-year-old actress had started a fire in the driveway of a home in the Los Angeles suburb of Thousand Oaks. Bynes was born in Thousand Oaks and grew up there. The Ventura County Fire Department confirmed that it responded on Monday night to an incident involving a gas can that was set on fire in a driveway and that Bynes was at the scene, but it would not say if she was accused of starting the fire. The small fire, which scorched the driveway, was extinguished by local residents, the fire department said.
