Los Angeles (CNN) -- Law officers in California detained troubled actress Amanda Bynes for a mental health evaluation Monday night, the Ventura County Sheriff's Office said Tuesday. The 27-year-old actress was "involved in a disturbance in a residential neighborhood" in Thousand Oaks, a city about 40 miles west of Los Angeles, Sheriff's Capt. Don Aguilar said. The incident began with an emergency call to the fire department that a gas can was burning in a residential driveway at about 8:30 p.m., Ventura County Fire Department Capt. Scott Dettorre said. Bynes has had her share of legal problems lately. She faces three misdemeanor charges relating to an incident involving a bong allegedly tossed from her Manhattan apartment in May.
