winehouse at trial: accused of assaulting woman

Amy Winehouse plead to the court yesterday that she is too short to have punched another woman in the face, especially because her trademark beehive hairstyle gets in the way.

The singer is on trial and has been accused of assaulting dancer Sherene Flash, who asked to take her picture after a charity ball in London’s Berkeley Square.

Winehouse told District Judge Timothy Workman that at “5 foot 2Ω, or 5 foot 3,” (about 1.6 metres) she was too short to have hit the taller woman in the face.

“My hair does make a difference,” said the singer, who sported her signature hairdo in court.

She then proceded to show the court her shoes, that she said were similar to the  ones she wore the night of the assault.

“These are really flat. They don’t even have a sole,” she said.

Winehouse, who was granted a divorce from her ex-husband Blake Fielder-Civil a week ago, say quietly and attentively while her case was plead; and she occassionally took notes.

The singer looked very healthy while taking the stand. She said she had felt intimidated and annoyed when Flash “lunged at me and put her arm around me,” and had only meant to push the other woman’s arm away.

“I pushed her up, like away. I wanted her away from me,” Winehouse said.

“It was more like an indication of ‘leave me alone, I’m scared of you.”’

“I meant to just get her away from me. I was scared. I thought, people are mad these days, people are just rude and mad, or people can’t handle their drink.”

However, to no ones surprise, the prosecution attempted to tear Winehouse down by inquiring about her corruptive lifestyle.  They implied that the singer seemed to have been under the influence of alcohool or some kind of drug and that she may have agreed to take the photo, but became enraged when a third party attempted to enter the photo as well.

The trial is adjourned until Friday.
