Amanda Bynes doused her pet Pomeranian with gasoline!
The troubled Amanda Bynes, 27 years – old, doused her pet Pomeranian with gasoline while building a fire in the driveway of a woman she didn’t know. Once she realizes what she had done, she rushed to a local liquor store to wash her dog off.
It begins shortly after Bynes used a canister of gasoline to fuel a fire outside a random elderly woman’s home in Thousand Oaks, CA.
Amanda rushed in, carrying her dog in her arms, and headed to the restricted “employees only” area. The cashier at the liquor store smelled the gasoline, and ran back to see what Amanda was doing. This person found Amanda attempting to rinse off the dog in a back sink.
When the cashier confronted Amanda, she “freaked out” and left the store without incident.
Shortly after, police were able to locate Amanda and she was placed on a 5150 psychiatric hold, because they believed she was a danger to herself.
Prosecutors will not charge the troubled actress with trespassing, arson or any other criminal offense.They view her conduct as non-criminal and rooted in mental illness, which is scary, but at least she may finally get help. Officials almost immediately decided Amanda needs treatment, not punishment.
This lasts only 72 hours, but officials may seek to extend it up to two weeks if she does not choose to seek mental health care on her own.
