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.

Thank goodness she is finally under some psychiatric care. I guess they don't have a 5150 in NY since they didn't use it on all those occasions; guess too many NY'ers would qualify for it. Bazinga!

It doesn't take a genius to see she's tweaking! Bath salts...meth...

Poor kid. Milked for all her worth as a child star and never given proper means of adjustment into the adult world. Really sad.

I'm putting my money on this being an Ambien accident. Let's wait a week and see.

I feel so bad for her. It is obvious she has something seriously wrong with her. I hope someone can help her before something tragic happens. Thank goodness her parents have the dog.

I hope she is charged with animal cruelty and that she will never be allowed to own an innocent animal again.

Accidentally, huh? Sounds like she was going to set her dog on fire, then had a moment of clarity, and thought what the heck did I do? I need to fix this. But then the fog rolled back in, and she thought I know..... I'll go to the gas station, and clean the dog there... thats a GREAT IDEA!! yea,,, yea,,,,, lets do that, lol

SET MY PEOPLE FREE!
That whacked out FUGLY witch should not be allowed to care for a fellow dog - she cannot even care for herself. She is absolutely disgusting. Before Fluffy is returned to her she needs to learn how to care for, and groom, herself.
This is not something plastic surgery can correct!

A friend of mine from high school has schizophrenia. She was always a little different, but in her 20's things got much worse, and she was diagnosed. Some of Amanda's problems seem similar to my friend, but maybe it's the drugs or something, she seems to have more than one mental problem. Anyway, I hope she can be helped--this decline has become very serious and sad.

After watching this video of Amanda it looks pretty obvious that she's either fried her brains bad with heavy drugs or she really is going totally nuts ... real deal bat shyte crazy that might not be fixable with prozac or whatever.

why is the media reporting every sick, psycho event in this crazy woman's life? Who is paying her bills, her wig bills. . get her off the media, lock her in a padded cell and let her family deal with this.
