amanda bynesThis probably won't come as much of a surprise, but the most recent Amanda Bynes scandal has gotten even stranger. You may recall, the child star was placed on a 5150 hold after allegedly trespassing onto someone's property and setting a fire in the driveway. Now video has been released of Bynes' bizarre actions in the moments before she was nabbed. It's just too weird for words.

While she doused the concrete with gasoline, she inadvertently soaked her little dog, who was with her for some reason. Once the blaze was set, TMZ reports that her clothes and the beloved pooch both caught fire. After being confronted, she jumped into a cab and got out at a liquor store so that she could wash off her four-legged friends. Her appearance and behavior on the surveillance video is quite disturbing.

 

Creepy scene -- her darting into the store and going into a restricted "employees only" area with an animal. The alarmed cashier followed her into the bathroom where he smelled gas and saw Bynes trying to rinse off the dog. When he confronted her, she "freaked out" and rushed out the store.

Just further proof that there is someting seriously wrong with this poor girl. The entire incident just screams, "I NEED HELP." The website also reported that friends fear her behavior is a sign of schizophrenia (though she hasn't been officially diagnosed, as far as we know). Taking a cue from Britney Spears' dad (who took control of the popstar's finances and personal life after her meltdown), Bynes' parents are reportedly seeking a conservatorship. It's about time, don't you think? Oh -- and the dog is fine. Police handed the pet over to her parents.

What do you think of this video?
