She was reportedly put under a 5150 hold, a section of the California Welfare code, which regulates involuntary hospitalisation. 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."

Bynes can only be held for 72-hours under the 5150 order for assessment.

The website also reports the troubled former teen star accidentally drenched her pet Pomeranian with gasoline while building the fire in the residential neighbourhood and then raced to a nearby shop to clean the pooch. Watch their video footage of the incident here.
