Amanda Bynes could face year of involuntary confinement

Amanda BynesAmanda-Bynes-LAX-credit, 28, is reportedly close to being held in involuntary confinement by her doctors. TMZ reports that the retired actress’ doctors are preparing to seek an LPS Hold, which under California law, will allow them to hold a patient and administer medication without consent for a maximum of one year under the criteria that the patient is considered “gravely disabled.”

The news comes less than a week after Amanda had a social media meltdown on Twitter, accusing her father of physical and sexual abuse, and was placed into involuntary psychiatric hold for 72 hours. TMZ obtained a video of the She’s the Man actress arriving at LAX, where she posed for cameras while threatening to sue her parents and seek a retraining order against her father. “I am never speaking to my father again,” she said in front of paparazzi, appearing agitated. “My father should be put in jail for a really long time.”

Doctors were granted an LPS Hold over a year ago, after Amanda set a fire to her neighbor’s driveway and accidentally doused her dog with gasoline. Sources have told TMZ that her doctors will request a new LPS Hold within the week once the actress has been fully diagnosed.
