Amanda Bynes Doused Dog in Gasoline, Raced Inside Liquor Store to Rinse Off Pet

by at .  Updated at . Comments

More and more disturbing details of the bizarre incident that ended with Amanda Bynes hospitalized and held under 5150 psychiatric hold are emerging.

Bynes, as you've likely heard by now, started a fire with gasoline in a stranger's driveway in her SoCal hometown, leading a passerby to call 911 on her.

Well, it turns out she accidentally drenched her Pomeranian with gasoline while building the fire ... then raced to a nearby liquor store to clean the dog off.

This is apparently where she went after the 911 call was placed and she bolted; Bynes was found not far from the spot of the fire when police arrived.

Surveillance video inside the liquor store shows her bursting into the liquor store, dog in hand, and bolting straight for a restricted "employees only" area.

The cashier rushed out from behind the register and chased after Bynes.

The owner of the store tells TMZ that the cashier detected a strong odor of gasoline and saw Amanda trying to rinse off the dog in a sink in the back.

As soon as the cashier confronted Bynes, she "freaked out" and split.

Shortly thereafter, police located Amanda and placed her on a 5150 psychiatric hold, believing she could pose a danger to herself and/or others.

Typically, a 5150 hold lasts only 72 hours, as it's very difficult to hold someone involuntarily. But if officials believe she poses a risk, it may be extended.

Might not be the worst thing, given her recent behavior.

The dog's whereabouts and status are not known.

Who said she lives near this liquor store? Who said where she started the fire was in her own neighbourhood? Who said she drove to the liquor store - as opposed to just running to the nearest place with a sink? Why do you assume there was a carwash nearby? It is disingenuous to make assumptions in a determination to portray her as eben more wacky than she is!

It's funny, but not funny. It's funny that she accidentally doused her dog in gasoline. It's not so funny that she's apparently losing her sanity. I hope she can get it all back. And as for the dog... I hear they placed it in the witness protection program.

I've just got to ask! What celebrity lives near a liquor store? Dog drenched - drives
not to a carwash but to a liquor store. She's as dizzy as Merideth or what ever she's calling herself this hour.

@ Still don't care

Apparently the kind of "celebrity" that keeps getting kicked out of good decent neighborhoods so they have no choice but to live in or near the gutter or in her case, a liquor store!"

No one knows where the dog is, when it may need medical attention??? And at the very least, removed from that crazy girl's possession. Praying for the dog. As for Amanda, after this stupid trick endangering a small animal, she can go to hell for all I care, and I hope she does. Poor dog!

I'm so glad that she's in custody. From what I hear, she was exhibiting signs of schizophrenia so you never know....I do wish her the very best and I hope that wherever her dog is is In safe and capable hands...I feel terrible for her. Just sad.

That's all I needed to hear about Bynes. Please lock her away for a long time. I hope the dog finds a caring family.

I care about the dog. Where's the dog? Hope it's OK.
