Actress Amanda Bynes could remain in a mental health facility for up to two weeks, considerably longer that the customary 72-hour period for a 5150 hold.
Amanda Bynes was hospitalized Monday after starting a fire in front of a Thousand Oaks, Calif., home, deemed to be a danger to herself and others.
Authorities said she had no connection to the home.
Bynes, who is already facing drug charges in New York, was taken into custody for her own safety under California's Welfare and Institutions Code.
Otherwise known as a 5150 hold, this lasts typically for only 72 hours, but a source close to the case said officials may seek to have this one extended.
