PASADENA, Calif., Oct. 11 (UPI) -- Troubled actress Amanda Bynes has reportedly been placed on an involuntary psychiatric hold by doctors at a hospital outside Los Angeles.

The former child star arrived Friday at Los Angeles International Airport and got into a car she believed to be taking her to The London Hotel for a meeting with her parents and their attorney, TMZ reported. However, the car was actually hired by her parents to take her to a Pasadena hospital.

The car arrived at the hospital, where Tamar Arminak, a lawyer for Bynes' parents, was waiting with doctors to have her admitted.

Bynes was placed on a 5150 psychiatric hold, which allows her to be held for 72 hours with an option for doctors to extend the hold for up to 14 days.

TMZ said Bynes' parents are expected to seek another conservatorship during her stay in the hospital.

The hospitalization came hours after Bynes posted a bizarre series of tweets that first accused her father of molestation before retracting the accusations and blaming them on a "microchip" she accused her father of having installed in her brain.
