According to TMZ, Amanda Bynes, the troubled actress, has been placed on psychiatric hold after she was seen wandering around downtown Los Angeles without any clothes on during the weekend.
Eyewitnesses told TMZ that the She’s the Man star had no clothing on while she flagged down a car and stated she had been through a “psychotic episode.”
Bynes herself called the police and was taken to a nearby station where she was evaluated by mental health professionals who, in the end, decided to place her on a 5150 psychiatric hold.
Fortunately, it appears that she was not hurt. People close to her said she is now in the hospital and might stay there for a few days, which is the general duration of this type of hold.
This event happened around a year after her conservatorship ended; at that time, she was diagnosed with bipolar disorder.
TMZ reported that Bynes was supposed to attend ’90s Con 2023 in Connecticut over the weekend but had to drop out due to illness.
