AMY WINEHOUSE today pleaded guilty to the panto punch-up incident in which the singer clobbered Milton Keynes theatre manager Richard Pound.
She was spared jail, but was handed fines totalling £185 and given a two-year conditional discharge.
Passing sentence, Judge Peter Crabtree of Milton Keynes Magistrates’ Court said:
“[The conditional discharge] may be harder than a fine because you have now got to stay on the straight and narrow for the next two years.”
If the last couple of years are anything to go by, Judge Crabtree makes a fair point.
In the original late-December incident Winehouse disrupted the performance of Cinderalla, starring Bobby Davro and Mickey Rooney, with sweary outbursts, before introducing to Pound her fighting techniques, which included kicking and hair-pulling.
