Amanda Bynes' Psychiatric Hold Extended

Amanda Bynes

It looks like the majority of the world was right — there is something crazy going on in Amanda Bynes’ head! She was taken into custody on a 5150 psychiatric hold Monday, and although it was supposed to last no more than 72 hours, the doctor’s mental evaluation reportedly found enough wrong with Amanda to keep her under watch for two more weeks.

Amanda is allegedly exhibiting signs of schizophrenia, and is continuing to be held in a hospital so she can be properly diagnosed. Once things are officially figured out, her parents reportedly want to keep her under conservatorship, which can only be done if doctors decide she is a danger to herself or others.

If you’ve read Amanda’s Twitter feed over the last few months, you might’ve deducted that there was something wrong with her mental state. Unfortunately, that wasn’t enough for a judge to require her to have a guardian. However, on Monday, Amanda set fire to a random driveway in California, an incident which caused police to put her under the 5150 hold.

More updates to come as Amanda continues to get evaluated…
