Amanda Bynes was reportedly hospitalized on 5150 hold. According to TMZ, the troubled star has been accused of starting a fire in a Thousand Oaks driveway Monday night. Bynes was questioned when found with the "campfire," and sheriff's deputies determined she was in need of mental evaluation.

5150 is a section of the California Welfare code, which regulates involuntary hospitalization. It is used "when any person, as a result of mental disorder, is a danger to others, or to himself or herself, or gravely disabled."

This comes as the latest in a deluge of questionable activity, including being kicked out of the Ritz-Carlton and trespassing at an old folks' home.
