Amanda Bynes has been placed under a 5150 hold, has confirmed, after police say she was accused of trespassing and starting a small fire in the driveway of a Thousand Oaks, Calif. home Monday.

The 27-year-old was placed on the 5150 — she'll be held for evaluation the next 72 hours — after speaking with officers who arrived on the scene.
