Courtney Love has surrendered to US police after allegedly assaulting a woman at the home of her former manager and ex-boyfriend.

The star, 39, was charged with assault with a deadly weapon, reports the BBC. She was later released on bail.

The charges relate to an incident on 25 April, when the fomer Hole frontwoman allegedly assaulted a woman with a bottle and a torch at an LA home.

Courtney Love is scheduled to appear in court on 9 July.

The singer is already facing one trial for possession of prescription drugs. As previously reported on NME.COM, Courtney Love’s pre-trial has been postponed again.

The singer’s lawyer Michael Rosenstein turned up in court earlier this week without Courtney Love, who, after filing a form with the court, does not have to turn up for court appearances on the case.

The two sides decided the pre-trial hearing would continue on July 15.

Rosenstein told reporters Love expects to beat the charges, both for illegally possessing prescription pain killers, before the case makes it to the trial phase.

Love also faces an assault charge after allegations she hit a fan with a microphone during a solo concert in New York in March.
