Just over a week after receiving a DUI in Los Angeles, Amanda Bynes has been put on psychiatric hold in Pasadena, according to reports from Us Weekly and TMZ. She was apparently on her way back to the city when a car picked her up at LAX on the premise of transporting to her to a hotel, but then brought her to an unnamed psychiatric facility at the request of her parents, who had previously arranged the pickup.
Bynes' parents have been publicly speaking out about her apparently unstable condition for several days, urging her to come back into their care. Earlier today, Bynes accused her father of sexually abusing her as a child on Twitter, a claim which her mother has refuted. Bynes later retracted the statements in a further Tweet.
This is the second time Bynes has been placed on psychiatric hold and, after her first stay, her parents took on a temporary conservatorship that ended in early September. Holds of this kind last between 72 hours and 14 days. Right now, no official statements have been made by the family or Bynes' representatives. (Us Weekly)
