NEW LOVE DATE

The new date is October 31...

COURTNEY LOVE’s arraignment in LOS ANGELES on a misdemeanor drugs charge was postponed on Friday.

Love was not present in court, but lawyers representing the singer asked Judge John W. Green of Los Angeles Superior Court, District 80 to put off the arraignment for three or four weeks so they could review the charges. Deputy City Attorney Matthew Schonbrun, the prosecutor in the case, did not contest the request  and the Judge waved the hearing until October 31.

The charge stems from her recent arrest by the Los Angeles Police Department. LAPD say they encountered the singer after receiving two radio calls indicating a burglary suspect was on the scene in the 100 block of South Mansfield Avenue, in LA.

The police department reports that after responding to the scene, they encountered Love, who indicated she broke some windows at a local home.

As a result of her conduct on the scene, which the officers believed indicated she was under the influence of drugs, Love was taken to the police station. There, her condition was further assessed and the officers arrested Love for allegedly violating Health and Safety Code 11550, Under the Influence of a Controlled Substance. She was later released on $2,500 bail.

If she is convicted on the charge, Love could face a maximum penalty of one year in county jail.
