Amy Winehouse acquitted of assault in Britain

A judge has acquitted Amy Winehouse of assaulting a fan who asked to take her picture. District Judge Timothy Workman found the 25-year-old singer not guilty of punching dancer Sherene Flash in the eye after the fan asked to take her picture following a charity ball in September.

Prosecutors claimed it was a deliberate assault. But Winehouse said she had felt intimidated by the drunken Flash -- and claimed she was too short to have hit the dancer in the face.

Winehouse shot to stardom with the Grammy-winning album "Back to Black" in 2006, but her music has been overshadowed by reports of drug use, run-ins with the law and a tempestuous marriage.
