Amy Winehouse Arrested, Charged With Assault For 2008 Incident

Singer allegedly struck fan in September during a show.

Another day, another arrest for [artist id=”1742872″]Amy Winehouse[/artist]. The troubled British retro-soul singer, who has been lying low on the island of St. Lucia for much of the past two months, returned to England on Sunday. And just a few days later, she was arrested for assault.

Winehouse, 25, turned herself in to police on Thursday and was charged with hitting a fan at a London show last September.

“Amy voluntarily attended a police station in London yesterday morning,” Chris Goodman, a spokesperson for the singer, said in a statement. “She was questioned by appointment in relation to an accusation made after the Berkeley Ball last year. She was charged with common assault and will attend a court hearing in the coming weeks.”

Dancer Sherene Flash has claimed in tabloid reports that she was hit in the eye by Winehouse after asking to take a picture with the Grammy-winning “Rehab” singer at the September 26 concert. (This is not to be confused with the time Winehouse was caught on tape apparently striking a fan at the Glastonbury Festival in June.) Police said that Winehouse was booked and released, and she is due back in court on March 17.

Winehouse, who has struggled with a drug problem and serious health issues , has reportedly written some songs for a follow-up to her Grammy-winning breakthrough 2006 Back to Black album, but no release date for her third album has been announced. Due to her personal struggles, Winehouse was forced to pull out of a scheduled 2007 U.S. tour . She is scheduled to play her first American date in several years in April, when she takes the stage at the Coachella Festival in Indio, California.

Servin' it hot and fresh since '99.
