Man acquitted in Blake Fielder-Civil assault trial



Tbdwinehouseblake062608 The pub manager whose face was broken by Amy Winehouse's husband Blake Fielder-Civil has been found not guilty of trying to pervert the course of justice by a British jury, the AP reports.

James KIng had been accused of taking a bribe to drop assault charges against Blake, who has admitted breaking King's cheekbone in a 2006 barroom brawl and then offering him $400,000 to shut up over it. King had claimed he was threatened into keeping quiet, not bribed.

This is all great news for Amy Winehouse, who has some sort of lung issue that may or may not be emphysema, depending on whom you ask. Her husband will be sentenced next month, and this can't possibly look good. Blake may or may not be going up the river for a long time over this. Who will smoke crack with Wino then?
