LONDON, March 6 (Reuters) - British singer Amy Winehouse has
been charged with assault following an incident at a ball in
London's Berkeley Square last year, her spokesman said on

"Amy voluntarily attended a police station in London
yesterday morning," her spokesman said in a statement.

"She was questioned by appointment in relation to an
accusation made after the Berkeley Ball last year. She was
charged with common assault and will attend a court hearing in
the coming weeks."

London police said that the hearing would take place at
Westminster Magistrates' Court on March 17.

The 25-year-old bee-hived soul singer won five Grammy awards
in 2008 and her second album "Back to Black" has won widespread
critical acclaim.

But her private life, including a battle against drug
addiction, has overshadowed her recording success.
