Amy Winehouse was arrested yesterday (October 18) in Norway for cannabis possession. Her husband, Blake Fielder-Civil, and a third member of her touring party were also held by police.

According to BBC News, Winehouse was arrested in Bergen’s Radisson Hotel after police were tipped off that someone in the hotel had attempted to buy drugs.

Police found seven grams of cannabis in the singer’s possession.


Winehouse was held in police custody overnight and ordered to pay a fine of 500 Euros (£350), which she has paid.

Norwegian prosecutor Lars Morten Lothe said: “She’s paid the fine, so the thing is over for us now.”

Winehouse will now continue her European tour in the Netherlands on Monday (October 22).
