Former Nickelodeon star, Amanda Bynes missed her court date in a Los Angeles courtroom yesterday for which she was due to attend to hear charges following her Driving Under the Influence (DUI) arrest last September.
According to news reports, her lawyer, Richard Hutton defended her saying that she was mentally unfit to stand trial. The reports continue to claim that the case was subsequently moved to the mental health court for evaluation to determine the actress’ mental state.
Amanda was admitted to involuntary 5150 psychiatric hold in July after she torched a strangers driveway near her family’s Thousand Oaks home in California. The hold was later extended for an additional thirty days due to doctors’ request. The star’s doctors had also allegedly asked the judge for a long-term hold so she can be treated appropriately. The actress is due back in court on January 14, 2014 for a progress report.
