The 36-year-old called for help on the stranger’s phone before being taken to the local police station, an eyewitness told TMZ.
Bynes was examined by a psychiatrist, who stated that she urgently needed to be placed on a “5150 queue,” which usually lasts at least 72 hours.
The former Disney star, who suffers from bipolar disorder, remains in the care of the facility, according to the publication.
Her ex-fiancé, Paul Michael, told Page Six that Bynes “went off her medication.”
Bynes was engaged to Michael on Valentine’s Day 2020 when she debuted her emerald and diamond ring.
In July 2022, she and Michael reportedly ended their engagement, though they remained in a relationship.
“They are still together as a couple but have put their engagement and wedding plans on hold,” a source told Entertainment Tonight at the time.
“They have been through ups and downs together and personally and have realized that they may have been moving quickly, but they still love each other and are still committed.”
The couple met in a sober living facility and dated for several months before announcing their engagement in February 2020.
The Los Angeles incident comes a year after Bynes’ petition to disband the conservatory, under which she had stood for nearly a decade.
In 2013, Byne entered the conservatory, which appointed her father, Rick, as a trustee and gave her mother, Lynn, control of her medical and personal affairs.
The legal settlement had come into effect after what Byne had previously described as a dark time in her life.
But in February 2022, the actress’ attorney, David Esquibias, petitioned to have the conservatory quit — with the full support of Byne’s parents.
After a court ruling ending the arrangement, Bynes thanked her fans and parents for their support.
“Over the past few years I’ve worked hard to improve my health so I can live and work independently, and I will continue to prioritize my well-being in this next chapter,” she said in a statement in March 2022.
Tamar Arminak, attorney for Bynes’ parents, said they prepared for the termination and it was a gradual process to ensure all parties were comfortable.
Bynes’ mother Lynn is particularly excited for the “next chapter” in her daughter’s life.
“She couldn’t be prouder of what Amanda has accomplished over the past difficult few years,” Arminak said.
In 2020, Bynes went straight to Instagram to publicly address her conservatorship.
“Hi everyone. I wanted to thank you so much for your support. The fact that you’ve rooted for me over the years means more to me than you know,” she began.
“I’m sorry to have to deal with this and I’m sorry to put my issues on the internet, but that’s life.
“So thank you for always supporting me. Love you all. Relax yourself. Appreciate your love and support,” her video ended.
Bynes is best known for her roles on She’s The Man, Hairspray, Easy A and The Amanda Bynes Show.
