Amy Winehouse Pleads Guilty to Hair-Yanking/Assault



As if she could have explained it otherwise: Amy Winehouse has "admitted" that she assaulted a theatre manager during what the BBC calls a "Christmas pantomime," also known as a theatrical production of "Cinderella" conducted during the holiday season. The problem-plagued singer was given a two-year "conditional discharge" (read: probation) and will pay 85 pounds in costs, in addition to the 100 pounds that she must pay the aggrieved manager.

The prosecutor involved in the case, Julian Vickery, explained that Winehouse, who had apparently been drinking prior to attending the show, was being escorted to the bathroom by Mr. Pound, the manager, when they passed the bar and she asked him to get her another drink. "He responded along the lines of 'Don't you think you should have a glass of water?' Miss Civil said she felt embarrassed and patronised and, with no premeditation, grabbed his hair and pulled," he said.
