Amanda Bynes to Face Criminal Charges For Starting Fire?

There's not a lot to "like" about the news surrounding Amanda Bynes lately.

The 27-year-old What I Like About You star is currently under psychiatric hold after allegedly starting a fire and dousing her dog in gasoline on July 23.

However, TMZ is now reporting that Amanda will not face criminal charges for the incident, according to police sources.

Amanda could have faced charges for trespass, arson, or other offenses, but prosecutors and cops believe her actions were the result of mental illness. Phew.

That said, she is still facing DUI charges in L.A. and pot charges in NYC.

So put on your best wig and wish happy thoughts for Amanda's recovery.
