THOUSAND OAKS, Calif. (KTLA) — Actress Amanda Bynes was hospitalized on an involuntary psychiatric hold on Tuesday after allegedly starting a small fire in someone’s driveway, TMZ reported.

It reportedly happened at a home in Thousand Oaks on Monday night.

Firefighters responded to the home and then called police after finding Bynes, 27, standing in the driveway next to the fire, according to TMZ.

Deputies from the Ventura County Sheriff’s Department questioned Bynes.

Based on her answers, they determined that she needed to be hospitalized on a 5150 hold, TMZ reported.

The alleged incident was not Bynes’ first run-in with the law in recent months.

Bynes is facing three misdemeanor charges from an incident in May where she allegedly tossed a bong from her apartment in Manhattan.

The actress’ building manager reported that she was smoking “an illegal substance” in the lobby, New York police said.

When officers arrived, Bynes was back in her apartment, but let them in when they knocked, they said.

The officers spotted a bong and other marijuana paraphernalia on the coffee table, which Bynes apparently started tossing out the window, police said.

She was arrested and charged with tampering with physical evidence, reckless endangerment and criminal possession of marijuana.

The next hearing in that case was scheduled for Sept. 26.

Bynes also has a pending DUI case in Los Angeles. She was sentenced to three years’ probation in May for driving on a suspended license.

Two separate hit-and-run charges against her were dismissed late last year.
