Amanda Bynes Says Microchip In Her Brain Made Her Tweet Bad Things
Actress Amanda Bynes has been placed on 5150 psychiatric hold and a recent tweet reveals in part, why she might be on a 72-hour hold. Bynes’ claim that a microchip implanted in her brain made her tweet bad things about her father and that message sent out on Twitter could be key evidence in keeping the actress in a mental facility, according to experts.

But then she disavowed responsibility for the accusations in a tweet a short time later: “My dad never did any of those things The microchip in my brain made me say those things but he’s the one that ordered them to microchip me.”

To hold Bynes under California’s “5150” law, they must convince a mental health referee that she is “a danger to self, to others or is gravely disabled
The actress has quite a history, including a DUI charge last month. Her arrest report noted a “disheveled appearance.”
While in New York she was accused of shoplifting but was let go after signing a “no-trespass agreement.”
In 2012, Bynes was charged with a hit-and-run, hospitalized for treatment last year after a psychological evaluation and put on probation after a DUI earlier this year.
She was also arrested after allegedly tossing drug paraphernalia out of her New York apartment window in May 2013.
WGHP reports, “This is the second time Bynes has been placed under an involuntary psychiatric hold. The previous instance came in July 2013 after she was “involved in a disturbance in a residential neighborhood” in Thousand Oaks, California. She eventually entered an inpatient psychiatric facility and was later released into her parents’ custody.”[su_csky_ad]
