The incident is the latest episode in
a long line of disasters that have plagued the troubled star since she
left acting in 2010 after starring alongside current hot property, Emma
Stone, in Easy A.

The fall from
grace is all the more shocking because of the Californian's previously
squeaky-clean image portrayed in Nineties' Nickelodeon shows All That
and The Amanda Show.

It is believed Amanda
was first spotted in the parking lot of Baja Fresh in the San Fernando
Valley, where she smoked from the pipe and ate takeout tacos after being struck by the munchies.

She is then said to have driven off,
visiting a spa for three hours, before taking to the roads aimlessly
'for several hours, sometimes cutting off other drivers and violating
various traffic laws.'

The
Teen Choice Award winner eventually drove to a Home Depot store, to
purchase some coloured light bulbs, where she again smoked from the pipe
in the parking lot.

According to Radar, friends are growing concerned that Amanda is 'not in touch with reality.'

One friend said: 'Amanda is refusing to go to rehab or
seek any form of psychiatric treatment or diagnosis, because it's clear
something is up with her.

Last week, Amanda was charged with two hit and run charges and faces court later this month.

Her driving license has also been suspended, thought to have stemmed from when she refused to give a sobriety test following an arrest in April for a DUI misdemeanor after sideswiping a police car.

The insider continued: 'Amanda's completely gone off the grid… She's obviously crying out for help… She seems to be having some serious mental health issues and she's always out of it.'

Yet father Rick defended his daughter, telling People in April: 'She was not drunk. I was told that she blew a zero on the breathalyzer. She didn't have a single drink that night. She doesn't drink.'

Amanda also tried to speak out, tweeting: 'Hey @BarackObama… I don't drink.

'Please fire the cop who arrested me. I also don't hit and run. The end.'
