Winehouse Arrested In Norway

Amy Winehouse wasn’t in Bergen, Norway, very long before the local police busted her hotel room and fined her a reported £350 for possessing cannabis.

As many as 10 officers were said to have burst into the room after staff tipped them off that the smell of marijuana was wafting from the singer’s room and drifting along the corridors of the city’s Radisson SAS Hotel.

Police reportedly found Winehouse, husband Blake Fielder-Civil, and a third person believed to be a hairdresser smoking a joint and working on the troubled singer’s coiffure.

Norwegian papers also reported that the singer was then forced to remove all her clothes while police video surveillance scanned her for further evidence of drugs – or anything that she could use to harm herself.

A police spokesman claimed she behaved in an "exemplary" manner throughout.

After 12 hours in custody and £350 fines for Winehouse and her husband and a £240 fine for the third person, who’s being described in the U.K. media as an "unidentified British man," they were released on the morning of her October 19 show at the city’s Peer Gynt Salen.

Local newspaper reports say Winehouse had asked for a taxi to take her from the police station to the hotel, but she and her husband were told to make the 250-yard journey on foot.

She then reportedly "eased her woes" by checking into a spa and ordering champagne.

"We had a tip from a good source which led to police checking up on the tip," explained local prosecutor Lars Morten Lothe, who confirmed that they’d all "signed a ticket" to pay the fines and it was now a "closed case."

Two months ago Winehouse was taken to hospital after reportedly overdosing on a cocktail of alcohol, ecstasy, cocaine and ketamine, a potent horse tranquillizer.

In August she had to cancel an Oslo concert following a reported alcohol and drug overdose.

That show was rescheduled for October 20 at the city’s Sentrum Scene.
