Amy Winehouse was briefly arrested Tuesday, Dec 18 on suspicion of perverting the course of justice and was released on police bail until March next year.
Multiple Grammy nominee Amy Winehouse was arrested in London on Tuesday, December 18 on suspicion of "perverting the course of justice", which is the UK's version of interfering with a police investigation, in relation with her husband Blake Fielder-Civil's criminal charges of grievous bodily harm (GBH) and perverting justice.
Amy arrived at Shoreditch Police Station in east London at 5 P.M. to be "arrested by appointment" and was later that day being formally interviewed, fingerprinted and DNA tested. A representative for her said the songbird went in voluntarily to be interviewed and was arrested before questioning, ''as is common practice in the U.K.''
Police wouldn't identify the singer by name, but they did confirm a 24-years-old had been arrested during an appointment at a police station in connection with an investigation into attempting to interfere with the course of justice.
Has since been released on bail, Amy was ordered to return to a London police station in early March.
Amy's arrest is connected to charges against her currently incarcerated husband, Blake Fielder-Civil, who's facing sentence of life in prison after being accused of attempting to interfere with witness' testimony in his upcoming trial for allegedly assaulting a barman back in June.
