Amy Winehouse arrested

Amy Winehouse arrested and released on bail

Amy Winehouse has been released on bail after being arrested last night on suspicion of involvement in an alleged £200,000 plot to fix her husband’s assault trial.

A Scotland Yard spokesperson told the Daily Mail: ‘A 24-year-old woman has been bailed to return to an east London police station on a date in early March pending further inquiries.’

The singer arrived at the Shoreditch Police Station at 5pm to be ‘arrested by appointment’, before being interviewed, finger printed and DNA tested.

It is thought she was questioned after accusations that she was aware of a plan to ‘fix’ a GBH case against her husband, Blake Fielder-Civil.

Fielder-Civil is currently remanded in custody at Pentonville prison on charges of attempting to pervert the course of justice in relation to the assault of James King, the landlord of Macbeth’s pub in Hoxton, on 20 June last year.

It is alleged that Blake, and friend, Michael Brown, who is also implicated in the assault, later conspired to pervert the course of justice by offering King £200,000 to withdraw is allegation and flee to Spain until the case collapsed.

Fielder-Civil will be remanded in custody until 18 January for a plea and directions hearing, with a trial date planned for June.

For now, police have turned their attentions to Winehouse, confiscating her mobile phone records, bank records and computer software, which could provide evidence of involvement in the alleged plot.
