Police found Bynes standing in the driveway of a home where a small fire was blazing, law enforcement sources told TMZ.

Bynes was apparently questioned by police on what she was doing near the fire, and her answers led the responding officers to take her into custody.

She is now undergoing an involuntary 72-hour mental evaluation at a local hospital, reports suggest.

Bynes has been embroiled in several controversies over the last few months, including being arrested for allegedly throwing a bong out of her apartment window.

She has also been involved Twitter feuds with several celebrities, including Lance Bass, Zac Efron, Miley Cyrus and Perez Hilton.

A spokesperson for Bynes has not commented on this latest incident.
