Amy Winehouse pleaded guilty to a charge of common assault in court this morning, admitting she drunkenly assaulted a theater manager before Christmas.
She was fined and ordered to pay compensation of roughly $300 (harsh), and was given a two-year conditional discharge. That's like a suspended sentence.
The gist? If she stays out of trouble for the next 24 months, she's a free woman. If not, well, in the judge's words, Wino will be "hit hard... and hit twice."
Wino. Staying out of trouble. Two years. Good luck with that!
"It might be harder than a fine, because you have to stay on the straight and narrow for two years now," said District Judge Peter Crabtree acknowledged.
Odds on Amy Winehouse violating the terms of her punishment? 3:2!
The incident in question? Amy Winehouse pulling the dude's hair and calling him a "f--king c--t" during a family-friendly rendition of Cinderella. Classy as ever.
The blows were exchanged after the theater manager's simple suggestion that it might not be the best idea for the intoxicated singer to keep boozing. Jerk.
Her lawyer admitted she was out of line but praised Amy for the strides she's made toward consistent sobriety after examining her most recent medical report.
The 26-year-old appeared in court this morning under her married name, Amy Civil. For those keeping score, she is no longer married to Blake Fielder-Civil.
Speaking of Fielder-Civil, who she is reportedly dating again and planning on remarrying, he allegedly proposed to Sarah Aspin during his stint in rehab.
Amy should be beating him up and thus landing in jail shortly!
