The parents of actress Amanda Bynes are reported to be “sick with worry” over the erratic behavior of their daughter who has recently been placed on a 5150 Psychiatric Hold, according to media.
The Mirror reports that her parents, Rick Bynes and Lynn Organ, are “sick with worry” and now seem to be considering getting a conservatorship over Amanda, 27.
Amanda has repeatedly called her parents “ugly” on Twitter, and was put under an involuntary psychiatric hold in Los Angeles after allegedly sparking a small fire in a stranger’s driveway.
According to a sheriff’s statement regarding the incident:
“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.”
That 5150 hold can last for up to 72 hours, deputies said.
Another story from the Huffington Post cites the LA Times and reports that “authorities could seek to have the  order extended for up to two weeks if they can show she is a danger to herself and others.”
