Dog Soaked In Gasoline Before Amanda Bynes Placed Under Psychiatric Hold

  • Amanda Bynes’ dog was soaked in gasoline yesterday, when the troubled actress was put under psychiatric hold after allegedly starting a fire in a Thousand Oaks, California driveway. A surveillance cam at a nearby liquor store showed Bynes rushing inside and washing the dog off in a sink. She was reportedly “frantic and discombobulated” when she was picked up by police. It’s unclear what has happened to Bynes’ Pomeranian pup, although it reportedly wasn’t injured by the fire. In any case, I’m really, really glad to hear Amanda Bynes is getting closer to receiving the care she needs. [TMZ, E! Online]
