Amy Winehouse


Grammy-winning singer Amy Winehouse was freed from police custody Saturday, April 26 and granted a formal caution.

Amy Winehouse was in and out of jail. The Grammy-winning songbird, whose private life and battle with drugs have overshadowed her recording success, was released from police custody Saturday, April 26 just one day after being held for allegedly head-butting a man at a bar earlier in the week.

Amy voluntarily reported to a London police station on Friday, April 25 to be quizzed after allegedly head-butting a man outside a London pub during a wild night out. A 38-year-old man filed a lawsuit against her, alleged he was "headbutted" by the British singer after trying to hail her a cab at 3:20 A.M. on Wednesday, April 23.

Was put behind bars later that day, Amy faced six months in prison should she's convicted of the charge. She, however, was released from police custody Saturday and granted a formal caution, which means the assault will remain on her permanent record and could count against her if she is ever charged for a similar offense in the future. No charges were filed though.

Speaking about Amy's prison release, her representative Chris Goodman issued a statement, saying his client "admitted to a common assault by slapping a man with an open hand and accepted a caution" adding that "Amy was fully cooperative with inquiries and apologized for the incident. She thanks the police for their professional handling of the matter."

In other Amy news, it's been reported that she and her incarcerated husband Blake Fielder-Civil have been offered 1 million pound sterling by Penguin publishing company to write a book about their marriage. There have yet official words from either Amy or Penguin. In the meantime, Amy has hit the Rich List of the respected Sunday Times, claimed to be worth $20 million.
