The parents of a troubled actress were in court in Ventura County today, as part of an effort to seek conservatorship of their daughter.
Amanda Bynes was taken to a psychiatric facility in Ventura County Monday night for an involuntary hold, after authorities say she set a fire in the driveway of a Thousand Oaks home.
The 27 year old woman’s parents are asking a judge to give them temporary control over her medical treatment, as well as finances.
Bynes has had a number of run-ins with the law during the last few years, including a DUI arrest.
The hearing on the parents request was continued until next month, to give Bynes a chance to talk to an attorney.
The actress grew up in the Conejo Valley, starting in a number of television series, and teen oriented movies.
