Amanda Bynes Detained: Listen to 911 Tape

Jason Merritt/Getty Images(LOS ANGELES) -- Amanda Bynes has been placed in a 5150 involuntary hold following a disturbance Monday night in Thousand Oaks, Calif., a Ventura County Sheriff’s Office spokesman has confirmed to ABC News.

Now, KABC has obtained 911 calls that give more insight into the events that took place, where witnesses saw Bynes, 27, in the driveway of a home next to a small fire.

On the 911 tape, a concerned man calls about “a small piece of cloth” which was on fire “on a gasoline tank” in a residential driveway.

He said the fire was about five feet from the house itself and he wasn’t sure if there was any gasoline left in the tank, which is why he called. He added that nobody in his party was injured.

A 5150 hold allows a qualified officer to confine a person for 72 hours who is deemed to have a mental illness that makes them a danger to themselves or others.

According to Sgt. Eric Buschow of the Ventura County Sheriff’s Department, the former child star is not being charged with a crime. He would not elaborate as to what she told authorities or any other details of the situation.

Bynes was in a New York court earlier this month for charges of reckless endangerment, tampering with evidence and marijuana possession, following a May arrest.

The Easy A star was arrested after allegedly throwing a bong out of her apartment window. (She denied the charge.) The hearing for that case was postponed until late September.

The Los Angeles-based attorneys for Bynes had no comment. Her New York-based lawyer could not be reached for comment.
