Amy Winehouse charged with assault after theater fracas



Tbd-amywinehouse122409 In case you thought Amy Winehouse was back on the straight and narrow, she goes and gets charged Wednesday in connection with an assault at a theater. The Juice* got a nice little stocking stuffer with this news.

The 26-year-old singer was arrested after turning herself in at a police station with her lawyer, Thames Valley Police told the AP. She was charged with a public order offense and common assault under her married name Amy Civil, following a Saturday incident at Milton Keynes Theater.

Cops didn't provide details of the assault, but British tabloids have said she fought with a member of the theater staff after she began to heckle a performance of the show Cinderella, starring Mickey Rooney. She is free on bail and must appear in court on Jan. 20, just in time for her to do something else wrong.
