Amy Winehouse has on Friday afternoon, April 25 been arrested on suspicion of assault following reports that she head-butted a man outside a London pub.
The meltdown continues. Amy Winehouse keeps going from one low to another. The troubled singer was arrested on Friday afternoon, April 25 following reports that she head-butted a man outside a London pub during a wild night out.
Amy voluntarily reported to a London police station on Friday where she was expected to be quizzed on the alleged head-butting incident, and was arrested. Police didn't directly confirm that she was in custody, they instead simply said a 24-year-old woman was being held on suspicion of assault. British authorities don't usually name suspects until they have been charged.
A 38-year-old man filed a lawsuit against Amy, alleged he was "headbutted" by the Grammy-winning singer after trying to hail her a cab at 3:20 A.M. on Wednesday, April 23. To make matter worse, Amy was also reported to have punched another man in the face and smoked drugs on the street.
Amy was expected to be released from the prison in within hours. If convicted she could be sentenced to six months in prison. And while it is a policy in England to arrest a suspect before questioning him or her in connection to a possible crime, Amy has not been charged with anything just yet.
