Amanda Bynes taken to hospital

Amanda Bynes has been taken into hospital in California

Amanda Bynes has been taken to hospital for a mental health evaluation after deputies said she started a small fire in the driveway of a home in Southern California.

Ventura County sheriff's Captain Don Aguilar said deputies responding to a call found the actress standing next to the flames in the city of Thousand Oaks.

The deputies determined she met the criteria for a mental health hold and took her into custody. She can be held for up to 72 hours of observation.

Aguilar says no charges have been filed.

The 27-year-old former Nickelodeon star has had several run-ins with the law in California.

Earlier this month she appeared in a New York court on allegations that she chucked a marijuana bong out the window of her 36th-floor Manhattan apartment.

Accepting a glamorous job is tempting, but you'd prefer a position that is more edgy and demanding. An unpredictable job is calling your name; grab it.More
