Just when you think she might have found the right path, Amy Winehouse has more trouble brewing on the horizon. Winehouse, who has just returned from a Caribbean vacation and moved into a suburban home, has been charged with assault after an alleged incident in September at the posh “End Of Summer Ball” in London’s Berkeley Square. If you recall, this was the incident in which Amy’s young god-daughter made her singing debut at this ball, and Amy showed up wasted out of her mind, embarrassing herself and her god-daughter. Dancer Sherene Flash had been quoted by tabloid newspapers as saying she was hit in the eye by the “Rehab” singer after asking to take her picture. This isn’t the first time the singer has been involved in a physical alteration, but it is the first time she has been charged. She went voluntarily to the police station, where she was arrested and charged. She’s been released and is due to appear in court on March 17th.
Winehouse’s battles with addiction and frequent run-ins with the law have been highly publicized. She was fined for illegally possessing marijuana in Norway in 2007, and her drug problems have been front page news in Britain, where she was pictured puffing on what appeared to be a crack pipe last year.
Amy also got a police warning in April of last year after scuffling with two men during a night out on the town in Camden, a young and raucous north London neighborhood known for its music scene and drug culture.
