Over the weekend, Amanda Bynes was arrested by police and brought into jail for a mental health examination. After receiving a call from a woman in trouble, Los Angeles Police Department officers reportedly detained Bynes on Saturday.

The 37-year-old actress was brought to the police station, where a medical team was waiting to assess her and decide whether she required additional care.

Bynes may be seen being escorted into an LAPD cruiser while restrained in handcuffs. To reach Bynes, three cruisers were dispatched.

Witnesses to the incident claimed that Bynes was “calm” when speaking with the police, but that she appeared “defeated” as they handled her. Whether Amanda Bynes was arrested by the police or freed following the examination is currently unknown. According to a source close to the former actress, she might occasionally be “inconsistent” with her medicine, which frequently led to similar circumstances.

“Amanda was doing better recently and trying her best to take care of herself. She has been making an effort to go to AA meetings, trying to hang out with sober people, and she looked good. The only problem is she is inconsistent about taking her medication, which causes issues,” the source shared.

“When Amanda was admitted to a mental facility a few months ago, things weren’t going as well for her. She was very distressed, concerned about her past and reputation, surrounding herself with the wrong people who were bad influences, and not taking her medication,” the source continues.

The source said all of Bynes’ loved ones “want her to get home safe and get settled,” adding, “She is a great girl who means well and wants to get better.”

The actress’s situation had improved when her lengthy conservatorship ended in 2022. Bynes has had a difficult few months, as she just called it quits with her on-again, off-again boyfriend, Paul Michael. Additionally, in March, she spent a few days in the hospital.

It is unknown exactly what caused her to end up in the hospital in March. At the time, TMZ reported that Amanda Bynes had been transported to the police station and then put on a psychiatric hold.

The site also stated at the time that witnesses had seen the former starlet strolling about downtown Los Angeles while completely naked and hailing automobiles. She claimed to be at the conclusion of a psychotic episode and to have herself called 911 when she was in a car.

She was believed to have begun outpatient therapy in April after being released from the psychiatric institution after three weeks.

After the entire show, Bynes appeared to be returning to her regular schedule. According to reliable sources, she is “doing well and taking care of herself.” She was even seen getting her nails done.
