On Friday, Amanda Bynes was placed on 5150 psychiatric hold and committed to a hospital following two weeks of increasingly erratic behavior.
Amanda’s parents were initially unable to prove that the child star presented a threat to herself or others, but that quickly after Bynes accused her father of sexual assault, then blamed the false allegation on a microchip that had been planted in her brain.
Bynes’s parents worked with former Britney Spears manager Sam Lufti to convince their daughter to fly to Los Angeles under false pretenses. Once in LA, she was placed on a 3-day psychiatric hold.
A hearing was held yesterday to determine if the hold should be extended to 14 days, and remarkably, despite her obvious mental instability as of late, Bynes was nearly able to convince a judge that she should be released from psychiatric care.
Sources say Bynes seemed unperturbed by the proceedings, and casually rattled off a list of reasons she should be set free in a manner that made it clear that she’d rehearsing her argument.
Amanda reportedly maintained a calm demeanor while insisting to the judge that she had not posed a threat to anyone and was not guilty of violating any laws. (Bynes was caught shoplifting twice in one day last week, but no charges were filed.)
Insiders say the judge seemed to be on the verge of granting Amanda her freedom, but instead extended the hold for 3 days, rather than the additional 11 requested by her parents.
Rick and Lynn Bynes are seeking a conservatorship which would grant them legal control over Amanda.
