Not happening. That request Amanda Bynes’ lawyer filed, asking to be released from the confines of her extended 5150 hold have been denied.
After inexplicably starting a small fire in the driveway of a stranger’s residential home in Thousand Oaks, California, the police force, worried for her own personal safety and the safety of those around her, placed the 27-year-old actress under an involuntary psychiatric hold.
Under California law, a 5150 can only be instituted for a 72-hour maximum, unless a judge rules for an extension, which was approved in this case.
Her petition contesting the decision was denied. She must remain at the medical facility in LA until August 9, according to RadarOnline, because she’s not stable enough on her medication just yet and must remain under the doctors’ supervision.
