  • Amanda Bynes attends an appearance at Manhattan Criminal Court on July 9, 2013 in New York City. Bynes is facing charges of reckless endangerment, tampering with evidence and criminal possession of marijuana in relation to her arrest on May 23, 2013.
Amanda Bynes had barely touched down in Los Angeles this week when she ended up in a 72-hour involuntary psychiatric hold, according to TMZ.

Bynes was sent to the ward after allegedly starting a fire in someone’s driveway in her hometown of Thousand Oaks. To be fair, she reportedly referred to it as a “campfire,” which sounds much more Ralph Lauren. The cops had just questioned her for allegedly trespassing at an old folks’ home but had apparently let her go, only to find her warming herself farther up the street with a little red gas can in her hand.

Bynes will undergo an “evaluation,” and if found to be in need of help, her parents might finally be able to pursue a conservatorship similar to Britney Spears’, according to Radar Online.
