STORY: Amanda Bynes Placed Under Psychiatric Hold After Starting a Fire in Neighborhood 

The couple have already filed sealed court documents in Ventura County Superior Courthouse in Oxnard that highlight the series of recent erratic activity by the actress, according to RadarOnline and TMZ

Earlier this week, Ventura County Sheriff's Dept. Sgt. Eric Buschow told The Hollywood Reporter the actress was placed under a 72-hour psychiatric hold after starting a small fire outside a home in Thousand Oaks. The home belonged to an elderly woman that Bynes did not have any prior association with.

The actress, who grew up in Thousand Oaks, was subsequently checked into a hospital for a mental evaluation. 

The scheduled hearing has drawn comparisons to a case involving Britney Spears. In 2008, Spears' father, Jamie, was granted temporary conservatorship over the then-26-year-old singer after she exhibited erratic behavior.
