LONDON (AP) - Police say singer Amy Winehouse has been charged in connection with an assault at a theater.
Thames Valley Police said in a statement that the 26-year-old soul diva was arrested Wednesday after she presented herself at a police station with her lawyer.
Police say Winehouse is free on bail and must appear in court on Jan. 20.
Police say the singer was charged with a public order offense and common assault under the name Amy Civil, following a Saturday incident at Milton Keynes Theatre. Winehouse was granted a divorce
from her husband, Blake Fielder-Civil, in July.
Police did not provide details on the incident, but British media have reported that the singer allegedly struggled with a member of the theater's staff after heckling at a performance.
