Seems weird that the dateline on this news report is today, because this probably should’ve happened a long time ago, but Amanda Bynes, a joke that isn’t funny anymore, has been hospitalized and is being held for mental evaluation.
She’s being detained on a 5150, Fox News reports, which isn’t just Van Halen’s third best album, it’s also a law that provides for the involuntary psychiatric hold on people who are suspected of being bonkers and a danger to themselves or others.
“Amanda Bynes was involved in a disturbance in a residential neighborhood last night in Thousand Oaks in the 200-block of Avenida De Los Arboles. Deputies investigated the incident and determined that she met the criteria of 5150… She was detained and taken for a mental health evaluation,” the sheriff’s office said in a statement.
The 5150 hold, which can last for up to 72 hours, was brought on after Bynes started a small fire in the driveway of a home in Southern California, deputies said.
Looking forward to all the awesome jokes about this sad, mentally insane person that are about to crop up on Twitter. We love watching someone’s life go into the shitter don’t we?
