In papers filed Friday, Amanda Bynes' parents Rick and Lynn Bynes have petitioned for temporary conservatorship over their 27-year-old daughter, ET has learned.
The documents claim that Bynes' family is "deeply concerned that [she] poses a substantial risk to herself, to others, and to property based on recent events in her life.
ET first learned of the attempt to gain conservatorship from Bynes' former publicist and friend, Jonathan Jaxson.
This move comes after months of erratic behavior from the She's the Man star, who was originally placed on a 5150 hold by police Monday night (72-hour involuntary psychiatric hold) and was taken for mental evaluation. Now, she has reportedly been placed on a 5250 hold which allows her to be held for up to 14 days.
According to Ventura County Sheriff public information officer Captain Don Aguilar, she was involved in a disturbance at a residential area in the 200 block of Avenida de Los Arboles, in Thousand Oaks,Calif. Deputies responded and held her on a 5150 welfare and institutions code.
The 911 call involving Bynes came in at 8:38 p.m. Monday night, reporting a fire in the driveway of a house. The Ventura County Fire Department responded.
Friday's court filings go on to say that the family believes Bynes "is essentially homeless," claiming that she has no residence in California, where she's allegedly been staying since "around July 20."
The family says that they don't know how Bynes travelled from her New York home to California, and that when pressed she claimed to have "cabbed it."
The papers also describe Bynes as "extremely paranoid" and claim that she has no driver's license or formal identification.
