Can't Hold Amy Down

Amy Winehouse is, once again, free on bail after being arrested in the UK yesterday on charges stemming from a video that was circulated by The Sun that appeared to show Amy smoking crack and bragging about the other drugs she was fond of doing. Amy posted bond and was released from police custody around 10:30PM local time and, as you might imagine, immediately proceeded to roam the streets of London, England until the wee hours of the morning ... natch:

Amy Winehouse walked out of an East London police station around 10:30 p.m. Wednesday night, after being held for eight hours. "She has been bailed to return on a date in May," a Scotland Yard spokesman tells PEOPLE. He declined to specify exactly when that date would be "pending further police enquiries." Winehouse had gone to see law officers voluntarily at around 1 a.m. The troubled singer, 24, sat down with detectives after police obtained a video which allegedly showed her taking narcotics. In January, Britain's Sun newspaper ran photos of Winehouse smoking what the tabloid claimed to be a crack pipe. (She entered rehab soon afterward.)

So what does one do after they have been arrested, interviewed and then released on bond on drug charges? Why, you run around town until 4AM, that's what:

If Amy Winehouse was at all concerned about her second arrest in as many weeks, it certainly didn't show as she roamed the streets 4am this morning. The troubled singer left her Camden home in the early hours to dash to a petrol station where she collected supplies including magazines and drinks, chatting happily to photographers during her outing. With her trademark beehive wrapped up in a red bandanna with her husband's name emblazoned on it, the ever-erratic singer asked the paparazzi for suggestions for a new tattoo. It was just hours after she visited a London police station by appointment yesterday afternoon before being arrested possession of Class A drugs and later released on bail.

A rep for Winehouse released this statement concerning this latest arrest and release:

"Amy Winehouse voluntarily attended a London police station today by appointment. She was arrested in order to be interviewed and is cooperating fully with inquiries. The interview relates to a video handed to police earlier this year."

And just for completist's sake, here is a list of Amy Winehouse's arrest/release record ... mind you, it only covers a 7-month period:

October 18, 2007

Arrested with husband Blake Fielder-Civil in Norway after being caught in possession of cannabis. The pair are fined £350.

December 18, 2007

Arrested again in connection with investigation into Mr Fielder-Civil's charges of perverting the course of justice. He attacked a pub landlord and then attempted to bribe him to drop the assault allegation. Miss Winehouse is released the same day on bail.

January 22, 2007

A video of Miss Winehouse allegedly smoking a crack pipe is posted on The Sun's website. Footage shows the Back To Black singer claiming she has taken "six valium" before lighting up and inhaling from the pipe

February 2008

Miss Winehouse is interviewed under caution by police in connection with the video. She is not arrested but police confirm their inquiries are continuing.

April 25, 2008

Miss Winehouse is arrested on suspicion of assault. She went to a central London police station voluntarily to be questioned over an alleged assault. She was accused of attacking two men in the early hours of the morning after a night out in Camden.

April 26, 2008

Miss Winehouse is released from police custody after being cautioned for common assault.

May 7, 2008

The star is arrested in relation to the video allegedly showing her smoking crack.

Geeze, she's starting to make UK rocker Pete Doherty look like a good boy. I suspect this won't be Amy's last run-in with the police this year. The question becomes, how far is she going to take her reckless behavior before she ends up suffering serious consequences? I'm afraid to find out, actually. [Source, Source]
