Amy Winehouse pleads guilty.

Amy Winehouse has today (Wednesday) pleaded guilty to common assault and public order charges at Milton Keynes Magistrates Court.

The singer admitted assaulting a theatre manager during an incident at a pantomime.

The 26-year-old - who's from Barnet in Hertfordshire - lashed out at a 27-year-old theatre manager after disrupting a performance of Cinderella on the 19th December.

Ms Winehouse was arrested on the 23rd December after going voluntarily to MK police station.

She was charged with a public order offence and common assault under her married name of Amy Civil.

Winehouse was given a two year conditional discharge and ordered to pay £85 in costs and £100 in compensation to her victim.

Speaking outside the court, Acting Superintendent Simon Eatwell, from Milton Keynes police station, said: ``Milton Keynes has a very safe night-time economy (and) over the last year has reduced the amount of serious assaults and more minor assaults like this considerably. We will not tolerate incidents of public order and always will deal with them robustly. If you do commit an offence of this nature in Milton Keynes, you will face the consequences.''
