Cops Smash Down Door to Amy Winehouse's House


Husband Blake Fielder-Civil dragged away in chains

AMY WINEHOUSE was left "totally distraught" after policemen raided her house and arrested her husband.

The troubled singer - who has battled alcohol and drug addictions - was out collecting a parcel when eight plain-clothes policemen using battering rams and crowbars smashed through the front door of her Camden house at 4.45pm yesterday (08.11.07).

A distraught Amy then watched husband Blake Fielder-Civil be taken away by police over charges of a conspiracy to pervert justice through his involvement with a £200,000 plot to fix a trial.

Looking tearful and confused, and hyperventilating, 24-year-old Amy cried as handcuffed Blake was led away by police: "Baby, I love you. Baby, I'll be fine. I'll be fine, baby I love you."

Blake's mother, Georgette, said: "Amy is totally distraught. She's in pieces and rang me in a panic. She's too upset to talk right now, but we all need to be together. I'm on my way to see her now."

Blake, along with his friend Michael Brown, have both been accused of brutally assaulting barman James King, and allegedly offered him UKP200,000 in a bid to get him to change his police statement. If 25-year-old Blake is convicted of conspiracy to pervert justice, he could receive a life sentence.

A Metropolitan Police spokesman said: "A thorough investigation is being carried out into claims of conspiracy to pervert justice in connection with a trial.

"Three men have been arrested and are being questioned, and we are expecting to make further arrests."

It seems that we don't have to worry about Amy even trying to pretend she is a role model for youngsters. She came in to the game with less than most. All her fans just hope that she can pull enough of herself together to get another album out and do concerts. She really might need rehab.

At least it wasn't Amy who was taken away by the police and just her boyfriend. She makes the news so often that it must be in a way relieving to only be in the story because it involved someone she knew and wasn't all about her. It's also good to hear a story that isn't related to her abuse of alcohol or drugs for a change. Too bad for her boyfriend, but hey if you do the crime you should be prepared to do the time.
