Amanda Bynes
accidentally drenched her pet Pomeranian with gasoline while building a fire in a residential neighborhood ... then raced to a nearby liquor store to clean the pooch ... and TMZ has the bizarre footage.

The surveillance video -- taken inside the liquor store -- begins minutes after Bynes allegedly used a canister of gasoline to fuel a fire outside a random elderly woman's home in Thousand Oaks, CA around 8:38 PM on Monday night.

At 8:39 PM ... Bynes can be seen bursting into the liquor store and darting straight for a restricted  "employees only" area -- while holding the dog in her outstretched arms.

The cashier -- sensing something was wrong -- rushed out from behind the register and chased after Bynes to see what she was doing.

TMZ spoke to the owner of the store who tells us ... the cashier detected a strong odor of gasoline and observed Bynes attempting to rinse off the dog in a sink in the back area.

We're told ... as soon as the cashier confronted Bynes, she "freaked out" and left the store without further incident.

Moments later, cops located Amanda and placed her on a 5150 psychiatric hold believing she could pose a danger to herself and/or others.

As for the dog, it's current whereabouts are unknown ... but we're trying to track it down.

She didn't look like she was freaking out. I think the owner probably freaked out when she just walked right into the employees only area. The customer was standing there like he was getting ready to involve himself in a conflict.


How did she end up in a liquor store from her parent's neighborhood? It also looks like night and I thought she burnt the gas rag and got locked up while it was still light out.


I feel like a voyeur watching her every move all day. Maybe that is what drove her crazy also, too much attention.


It is weird how she resorted to crazy wigs like Britney did when the paps were chasing her to see how crazy she was. Maybe they try to hide in the wigs. It doesn't seem to help any.


It seems people start with partying and then things just go down hill. I wonder if someone is following them into bars and putting a weird drug in their drinks. Maybe they get lsd or something and don't realize it.

72 hours usually isn't long enough to basically stabilize a patient with anti-psychotics when they are showing signs of comorbid/concurrent disoders. In our "modern" efforts toward de-hospitalization, people like her just slip through the cracks despite loved ones' best and tiresome efforts.
