Well this isn’t good. Amanda is currently being held on a 5150 after setting a fire in some random person’s driveway.
Law enforcement sources tell us, the fire department responded to the home in Thousand Oaks, CA last night — near where Amanda was just accused of trespassing — after someone noticed the small blaze in the driveway. The sheriff’s department was subsequently called when Amanda was found standing near the campfire.
When sheriff’s deputies arrived, they questioned Amanda about what she was doing, and why she was doing it — and based on her answers, they determined she needed to be hospitalized on a 5150 hold. Translation: her answers were really wacky.
A 5150 hold is an involuntary hospitalization for mental evaluation. Amanda can only be held for 72 hours though.
Britney Spears was famously taken in on a 5150 in 2008 during her pre-conservatorship period.
Yikes. This really could be a turning point for Amanda. Maybe now someone (parents?) can get in there and try to get her some help. Because if you’re setting fires in peoples driveways, you have a problem.
