The world has found one person who thinks Amanda Bynes is mentally competent: her judge. The L.A. Superior Court announced this week at Amanda's mental health department hearing that she has been found mentally competent to stand trial for her 2012 DUI arrest.
The decision was based on the findings of a psychiatric report, and her attorney did not argue with the court's decision. Criminal proceedings are now reinstated, which means we could see Bynes for the first time in months in just a few short weeks.
Let's all hope she's doing much, much better.

Appearing in court for a progress report on Wednesday, the judge ordered Chris to 90 days in a confined anger management facility. During his stay, he must submit to drug tests and take any prescriptions recommended by the anger management pros. Oh, and the judge also wants more info on his Washington, D.C., incident… which means he could be thinking about revoking his probation and sending him to jail!

Ha. It'll take a behavioral rehab genius to solve the inner workings of this maniac! After he was arrested with misdemeanor assault in Washington, D.C. last weekend, longtime troubled star Chris Brown has checked into a Malibu facility to help deal with anger management issues. One insider tells E! News that Chris is a good guy, but needs help. "He keeps self-medicating with weed and alcohol and that's when he always gets in trouble," the source reveals.
Brown is due back in court on November 25th for the D.C. incident. He faces up to 180 days in jail and a $1,000 fine. Plus, the L.A. court could revoke his probation from his 2009 felony assault on Rihanna.
Hoping he gets better. Feeling like he won't.

Chris and his bodyguard were arrested, and will go before a judge this morning. Chris, who is still on probation from that whole RiRi incident, could face four years in jail if convicted.
A long shot, but we can hope.

Happy Gilmore's Shooter McGavin ain't so happy. Actor Christopher McDonald was arrested for driving under the influence this week in North Carolina after blowing a .15 blood alcohol level… nearly two times over the legal limit.
While drinking and driving is a serious, very unfunny action --- this mugshot does have some humor in Chris' resemblance to Bart Simpson! Anyone else seeing it??
Don't drink and drive. Don't be dumb.

According to TMZ, the actor was released with a simple $1,000 fine. Astounding considering the charges carried a possibility of four years in jail.

Ya see, that 1% made a quick appearance, but then the 99% took over again… "If anything it was the divorce"????? Could it also be that her mom and dad were both addicted to drugs and were total booze hounds?! I think that could have played a small role, if anything.

Police say Lamar was in a serpentine manner, and drove some three exits before noticing the flashing lights following him. Sad, sad stuff.

And that my friends is a good thing! Mentally troubled star Amanda Bynes has been locked up in a psychiatric hospital since she randomly lit a fire in a random person's driveway back in July. She's been asking to be released ever since, but doctors and the judge assigned to the case feel she's too unstable to be on her own.
On Friday, doctors asked for an additional 30-day extension for the psychiatric hold, which the judge quickly approved. The judge also granted Amanda's parents with temporary conservatorship, something that seemed to ultimately help Britney Spears way back when.
With the new extension, Bynes won't be going anywhere until at least September 30th. And that my friends is a good thing!

Give credit to the TMZ staff who actually grilled the daredevil and warned him about the dangers of drinking and driving. Seriously - one of the most disturbing interviews ever. Don't drink and drive.
