Bynes was detained by Ventura County sheriff's deputies and placed on a 5150 hold on Monday after setting fire to an elderly neighbor's driveway and her pants. Her behavior had became increasingly erratic over the past several months, with strange tweets and an arrest for throwing a bong out the window of her New York City apartment (Bynes claimed the object was a vase).
