VIDEO: Amy Winehouse Pleads Guilty To Drunken Christmastime Assault

Amy Winehouse decked more than the halls this past holiday season: the 26-year-old retro-soul singer pleaded guilty in London Wednesday to charges of disorder and common assault, in connection with her booze-fueled attack on a theater manager during a Christmastime performance of the pantomime, Cinderella.

Judge Peter Crabtree told the rocker it was “obvious that alcohol played its part” in the December 19 incident, and gave her a conditional discharge, which means she could receive further punishment for this incident if she gets into similar trouble over the next two years.

“It may be harder than a fine,” the judge told the Rehab singer, “because you have now got to stay on the straight and narrow for the next two years.”

Winehouse will have to pay her victim Richard Pound 185 pounds (about $300 in US currency) in compensation for the fiasco.
