It could be difficult to find one person in California to disagree that ex-child star Amanda Bynes has been acting strangely. Trouble with Los Angeles police led to the young woman's arrest last year on DUI and hit-and-run charges. Bynes has since fled the city for New York, where her unusual behavior continues to attract attention.
Observers might wonder why the former star's relatives, manager or friends haven't stepped in to help Bynes. After all, singer and former child star Britney Spears was placed under a conservatorship by a probate court. Why not Bynes?
