Actress Amanda Bynes detained

Amanda Bynes Arrested

By CNN Staff

(CNN) — Law officers in California detained troubled actress Amanda Bynes for a mental health evaluation after she was involved in a disturbance in Thousand Oaks on Monday night, the Ventura County sheriff’s office said Tuesday.

The 27-year-old actress has had her share of legal problems lately. She faces three misdemeanor charges relating to an incident involving a bong allegedly tossed from her Manhattan apartment in May.

A young teenager when she burst on the scene as the lead in Nickelodeon’s “The Amanda Show,” Bynes also starred alongside Jennie Garth in the sitcom “What I Like About You.” She later scored roles in movies, including “Hairspray” and “Easy A.”
