On Sunday night, Amanda Bynes caused a disturbance when she tried to break into a retirement community in Thousand Oaks.

Then on Monday night, Amanda was involved in ANOTHER altercation in her hometown of Thousand Oaks and is now being held in a 5150 hold, which in simplified terms is an involuntary psychiatric hold.

Captain Don Aguilar of the Ventura County Sheriff’s Office tells Hollyscoop, “Deputies investigated the incident and determined that she met the criteria of 5150 W&I (California Welfare & Institutions Code). She was detained and taken for a mental health evaluation.”

Amanda was apprehended a block from her father Richard’s Thousand Oaks home. 

Some reports claim Amanda was trying to start a fire in someone’s front yard.

To jog your memory, Britney Spears was also placed in a 5150 hold after she went through her “meltdown” phase.

We’ll have more details as this story develops.
