Amy Winehouse


Amy Winehouse may soon be an actual head case for the London Metropolitan Police—a head-butting case, that is.

British police have confirmed they are currently investigating an alleged incident that took place in the early morning hours Wednesday, when Winehouse reportedly knocked noggins with an unsuspecting Good Samaritan.

The police are acting on a complaint from a 38-year-old man who told local police he was assaulted by a 24-year-old woman. Police said no arrests have yet been made, but that inquiries into the matter are ongoing.

Should the singer ultimately be arrested and convicted of assault, she could face up to six months behind bars.

The as-yet unnamed man's unforgivable offense, it seems, was hailing a cab for the singer at 3:20 a.m. outside the Good Mixer pub in the Camden area of London.

According to the Sun tabloid, Winehouse's allegedly violent outburst, which occurred, per a bystander, when the singer mistook his cab-hailing hand for a groping one, wasn't a one-off—and wasn't just restricted to others—as she allegedly punched a second person in the face before walking herself into a lamppost.

In what may have been the first signal that the night wouldn't come to a squeaky-clean end, the singer set out Tuesday night with Babyshambles guitarist Mik Whitnall, aka Pete Doherty's No. 2.

Prior to the head-butting incident, per the Sun, Winehouse visited another nearby pub, Bar Tok, where she's accused of hitting a fellow patron who refused to give up his hold on the bar's pool table.

"I feel so angry," musician Mustapha el Mounmi, who posed for the paper in his swollen-lipped glory, told the tabloid. "She smashed my face hard. I could not hit back—she's a woman."

A fellow patron told the paper that Winehouse, who was photographed earlier that night on the street holding an unlit hand-rolled cigarette, was screaming out, "I am a legend, get these people out. I want to take drugs."

While Winehouse eventually made it home early Wednesday morning, she reportedly added one last insult to injury by stiffing her cab driver, refusing to pay any more than half her fare.
