Amanda Bynes, twenty eight, who has become known in recent years more for her legal woes and bizarre public behavior than her acting, was placed under so-called involuntary psychiatric hold after arriving in Los Angeles, her family’s attorney Tamar Arminak said.
The development comes just hours after the actress alleged that her father had fondled himself in front of her and asked her for sex. Later, she tweeted a retraction, blaming the comments on a microchip in her head.
“My dad never did any of those things. The microchip in my brain made me say those things but he’s the one that ordered them to microchip me,” she wrote on her Twitter account.
Born in 1986, Amanda Bynes was raised in Southern California and first rose to fame as one of the stars of Nickelodeon Channel‘s All That, a sketch comedy show that also produced Kenan Thompson and Nick Cannon.
Amanda Bynes, who joined All That when she was ten, was so popular that she got her own show, The Amanda Show, by the time she was thirteen.
She has previously been placed under psychiatric care after she allegedly started a small fire in front of a Los Angeles home.
Last Sunday, she was arrested on a misdemeanor charge of driving under the influence of drugs in Los Angeles, the California Highway Patrol said. She was later released from Los Angeles jail after posting $15,000 bail, according to jail records.
Amanda Bynes is also on three years probation after pleading no contest in February to a separate misdemeanor charge of reckless driving with an alcohol component stemming from a 2012 incident when her BMW swiped the side of a patrol car in West Hollywood.
A case against her for possessing marijuana and throwing a bong out of an apartment window last year was dismissed in June by a New York judge.
We just hope that this talented actor comes of this mess soon.
