THOUSAND OAKS, Calif. (AP) -- Amanda Bynes has been hospitalized for a mental health evaluation after deputies said she started a small fire in the driveway of a home in Southern California.
 
Ventura County sheriff's Capt. Don Aguilar says deputies responding to a call Monday night found Bynes standing next to the flames in the city of Thousand Oaks.
 
The deputies determined she met the criteria for a mental health hold and took her into custody. She can be held for up to 72 hours of observation.
 
Aguilar says no charges have been filed.
 
The 27-year-old former Nickelodeon actress has had several run-ins with the law in California.
 
Earlier this month she appeared in a New York court on allegations that she chucked a marijuana bong out the window of her 36th-floor Manhattan apartment.
