No one was injured.

Bynes has been open about her struggles with mental health and substance abuse.

In a 2017 interview with Hollyscoop, she said she was four years sober and looking to return to acting.

I want to do TV, maybe a few guest spots on some shows that Im a fan of and maybe another TV show where Im the star of it in the future, she said.
