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.

Who cares, it's a Pomeranian.
Those aren't real dogs anyway.

Her stay in the psych ward is just giving her more street cred and material for her rap album - i can't wait until it drops.

I am by no means a supporter of her and her psychotic behavior, and also her calling every celebrity ugly, but I really think its crazy to do an involuntary psychiatric hold. nothing even happened...

There's a lot of research that pot makes people predisposed the schizophrenia actively schizophrenic. She is a prime example. Schizos tend to smoke heavily when not on meds to drown out the racy feeling.

People have been saying for a while that she is schizophrenic. I've worked with schizophrenic patients before and I would agree.

Does the guy in white shoes reach behind and grab something off shelf during the confusion? Do we have a shoplifter taking advantage of Amanda's insanity? Watch carefully.

For Bynes it all started with marijuana and went downhill from there.

Well, she is sane enough to realize that her dog was in danger. Maybe that is the only living creature she has a true bond with? I feel bad for her, she simply DOESNT realize she is mentally ill. To be honest her parents should have forcibly intervened a year ago. I wish her luck as I would anyone else in this situation. Hopefully over time, she will be treated and lead a normal life.

When are they going to stop "mollycoddling" these cretins and giving them so much attention for thier abborant behaviors. Why are they even elevated to a "celebrity" status, their EVERY antic makes headlines no matter how vile and repulsive, At one time in this \country this kind of behavior was a career ender not a booster. This woman is mentally depraved, each act by her more grevious than the one before, now pouring gas on her dog!!!!!, time for that star to be put out once and for all and for her to be institutionalized. for some of these so called celebrities, any attention is attention and they crave the negative , if they didnt get that, if we said gross, no more and focused on the positives would be a far better place than now. so over these cretins, punks and thuds who think they have a modi*** of talent....their two minutes has run out
