On Monday, TMZ reported that the 37-year-old Nickelodeon alum was deemed a "danger" to herself and those around her after being detained by police.

Per the outlet, on Saturday, the Los Angeles Police Department officers handcuffed Bynes after receiving a call from a woman in distress, who was determined to be the Hairspray star.

She was then taken to a police station where a medical unit was standing by to perform a mental health evaluation and determine if she needed further treatment.

Following the incident, a source told ET that The Amanda Show alum is doing her "best" to care for herself but she's "inconsistent" with her medication.

"She has been making an effort to go to AA meetings, trying to hang out with sober people, and she looked good," the insider said. "The only problem is she is inconsistent about taking her medication, which causes issues."

Back in April, Bynes began her outpatient treatment after she was hospitalized for roaming downtown Los Angeles nude.
