Amanda Bynes Unfit To Stand Trial - Lawyer
Troubled star would not understand DUI case, her representative claims...
Amanda Bynes is not mentally fit to stand trial, according to her legal representative.
The 27-year-old actress was due to attend court yesterday to face a DUI charge, but her lawyer Rich Hutton has submitted papers claiming she would not be capable of understanding the proceedings.
US gossip site TMZ reports: "The judge apparently had concern... and transferred the matter to the mental health court. The judge in that court will conduct a hearing to determine Amanda's mental competency."
Bynes was placed on involuntary psychiatric hold following a public meltdown earlier this year.
Her parents were later granted a conservatorship over her personal and financial affairs.
