Amy Winehouse gets off easy – but maybe not with her dad

aw0001717f10dr.jpgTwo Amy Winehouse stories came to light over the past two days. Remember, readers, Amy Winehouse is top on my list of of “Celebrities with Borderline Personality Disorder (possibly, not for sure)” – although it is likely that I will have to re-examine the list in light of Pete Doherty’s weirdness.

Here are the Amy Wino stories:

Her father wants her committed. Quotes from this article:

[her father]: “I’ve told them (medical authorities) she is a danger to herself. There is evidence of self-harming and she’s a danger to other people because she’s attacked someone.

“Obviously as her dad I will try and do what’s best for her. Unfortunately, what I think is best for her and what she thinks is best for her are two different things.”

It’s not the first time Mitch has expressed his desire to have Winehouse committed – he previously revealed his intentions in January, but hospital officials couldn’t help, because she wasn’t considered a danger to herself.

She got off the assault charge with a “caution.” Here are some quotes from that article:

A police spokesperson said on Saturday: “She has left the police station. She has been cautioned for common assault.”

Winehouse went voluntarily to the police station on Friday afternoon.

Her spokesman, Chris Goodman, said in a statement that the singer had “admitted to a common assault by slapping a man with an open hand and accepted a caution”.

The statement added: “Amy was fully cooperative with inquiries and apologized for the incident.”

The caution means that the matter will remain on her record and could count against her should she be charged with a similar offence.
