Amy Winehouse's husband is arrested



Tbdblakeamywinehouse111207 While we find it fascinating Amy Winehouse’s lifeless body hasn’t yet been discovered in some back alley opium den, her husband Blake Fielder-Civil is likely to hit the showers at the local cooler after being arrested for trying to fix his upcoming assault trial.

The U.K.’s Sun says Blake, who is charged with beating bartender James King, allegedly offered King somewhere in the neighborhood of $400,000 and a trip to Spain to withdraw his statement in Monday’s trial. Eight cops bashed down the couple’s front door in London and nabbed Fielder-Civil.

“A thorough investigation is being carried out into claims of conspiracy to pervert justice in connection with a trial,” a police spokesman said. “Three men have been arrested and are being questioned. We’re expecting to make further arrests.”

Winehouse didn’t immediately comment, probably because she was waiting for the sticky icky to clear so she could see what was going on.
