After a series of reports of strange and concerning behavior taking place in New York City, Amanda Bynes was placed in an involuntary 5150 psychiatric hold in a Los Angeles area hospital.
TMZ has now learned how the plan was put in place to get Amanda help, and that story is equally as surprising.
Amanda Bynes is finally getting the help she needs, and a judge wants to make sure she keeps getting it -- so the troubled actress could spend the next year locked up in a mental health facility.
Knowing that, it probably won't surprise you that a tweet that went out Saturday from her long-dormant Twitter account wasn't posted by Amanda herself.
The Amanda Bynes saga took another bizarre turn late Thursday night, when the troubled actress was arrested in her NYC apartment -- after throwing a bong out the window of her apartment on the 36th floor.
