Amanda Bynes: Hospitalized on 5150 Hold

Amanda Bynes has been checked into a hospital for a 5150 hold after reportedly setting fire to a random citizen’s driveway on Monday night (July 22) in Thousand Oaks, Calif.

The 27-year-old actress apparently chose the house at random, as the elderly woman in residence had no idea what was happening or what the former Nickelodeon star would have against her, TMZ reports.

A 5150 hold is an involuntary hospitalization hold for mental evaluation.

Earlier that evening, Amanda was turned away from an elderly home and accused of trespassing.

Mental evaluation? Good! Finally. Really ridiculous how people have been encouraging her behaviour. Setting fire to a driveway? Who does that?! Someone who needs a mental evaluation, that’s who.

She is an absolute mess. I mean where are her parents? Its ok saying “they’ve tried” – if THAT was my daughter I would never give up in getting her help! She is mentally ill and has the whole world watching and laughing at her.

I hope this will be enough to allow her parents get a conservatorship/for her to realize she needs help.

# 4

she is absolutely tragic. i know we all make fun of her and what not but it’s gone far enough, she needs help. a girl who has so much potential as her would be a waste to give up on. i hope they take her seriously. something is wrong with her.

# 5

Okay, she can’t be faking it anymore.

# 6

Why do I not believe this? I don’t know, its too shocking. I betting she has bipolar if anything..

I really hope she finally gets the help she needs. This whole things has been really sad to watch especially being a long-time fan and loving her movies.

Remember guys she took Accutane, that sh*t is known to mess with people’s minds. I’ve seen very similar things happen to a couple people that also took the drug.

Cont’d ~ they now have mental diseases they didn’t have before (they were healthy before the acutane) and one didn’t realize anything was wrong or want help.

FINALLY. she should’ve gotten treatment months ago

Sorry, but I’m still not buying this as anything other than a badly, sorrowful, sadly and horrible PR miscalculation on her part. There’s just too much of a “trying to hard” stink rising from it all. When Britney went off the deep end it was real. She was off unwinding off the spindle but she never attacked anyone else unlike Amanda who seems to weekly hurl insults publically at MORE famous ppl. She’s attacking anything and anyone who will bring attention to her. It’s “if I can’t stay famous as an actor and singer, I will THIS way.” She’s not nuts people, she just plays one in the news.

@StartedFromTheBottom: She’s an adult. There’s only so much they can do. Unless she’s a danger to herself and/or others,now we see that she is, then and only then can her parents and the courts do something.
