Amy Winehouse pleads guilty to pantomime assault

Singer appears at Milton Keynes Magistrates' Court

Amy Winehouse has pleaded guilty to a common assault and public order charges following an attack at a pantomime at the Milton Keynes Theatre last December.

Appearing at Milton Keynes Magistrates’ Court this morning (January 20), the singer admitted to hitting theatre manager Richard Pound during a performance of Cinderella on December 19.

She was fined £85 costs, £100 in compensation and given a two-year conditional discharge, reports Reuters.

Speaking of the conditional discharge district judge Peter Crabtree told Winehouse: “It may be harder than a fine because you have now got to stay on the straight and narrow for the next two years.”

He also said it was “obvious” that alcohol was a contributing factor for the assault.
