Amanda Bynes has reportedly been hospitalised on a 5150 hold after apparently starting a small fire on the driveway of someone's home on Monday (July 22).
Law enforcement sources told TMZ that the fire department was called to a house in Thousand Oaks, California after Bynes was found standing on the property next to a campfire.
The website adds the sheriff's deputies questioned Amanda over what she was doing, and based on her answers, was placed on a 5150 hold - which is an involuntary hospitalisation for mental evaluation.
TMZ went on to state that the 27-year old can only be held for 72 hours.
This is not the first time Bynes has found herself in a spot of bother this week, with police also confronting the star outside a retirement community following an argument with a cab driver on Sunday night (July 20).
According to the driver, Amanda was trying to enter the elderly people's home, with management turning her away because they felt she was drunk, later accusing her of trespassing.
It is thought that after those working at the retirement community called Bynes a taxi to leave the premises, she got into the vehicle and shouted: "Get me the f**k out of here ... I don't have any money."
The driver is then said to have asked Bynes to leave his cab when police were called. However, there is no record of the Hairspray star's arrest.
Bynes is thought to have told the cab driver that she was visiting a relative at the retirement home.
Amanda is yet to comment on both reports, but keep it MTV News UK for more…
