Amy Winehouse Appears in UK Court over Assault Charges

Singer Amy Winehouse has been charged with common assault over an incident in late 2008.

Winehouse appeared Tuesday at London's City of Westminster Magistrates Court accompanied by her father, Mitch Winehouse, CNN reported. Winehouse made brief comments to a throng of photographers before entering court.

Tuesday's court appearance is just an initial hearing in the case, and a verdict is not expected, her spokesman, Chris Goodman, commented. He added that a date for the next hearing had not been set yet.

The Grammy-winning singer was charged in connection with an incident last September, UK officials said. The argument ended with Winehouse hitting a fan after agreeing to pose for a photograph at a London charity ball, British media reported.

Police questioned Winehouse earlier this month in connection with the incident.

Winehouse faces the possibility of another potentially damaging court case after husband Blake Fielder-Civil earlier this year asked his lawyer to commence divorce proceedings citing adultery.
