Amanda Bynes Placed Under Psychiatric Care

The troubled 27-year-old actress was taken to a hospital after setting a small blaze outside a residence in Thousand Oaks, Calif.

Amanda Bynes is being evaluated at a hospital for mental evaluation after setting a small fire Monday evening outside a home in Thousand Oaks, Calif.

When police arrived, "Deputies spoke with her and interviewed her and determined that she met the criteria of a 5150," Buschow said Tuesday, identifying the section of the California Welfare and Institutions Code that places a person under 72-hour involuntary psychiatric hold after they "make statements that they're either a danger to themselves or others, or gravely disabled."
