Amy Winehouse Arrested & Released

Amy Winehouse was arrested Monday in London "in connection with an investigation into perverting the course of justice." Amy was questioned about an alleged plan to derail a criminal case against her husband, Blake Fielder-Civil, who is currently in jail. The singer's rep told People.com, "I can confirm that she did go in voluntarily to be interviewed and was placed under arrest, as is common practice in the U.K., before being questioned." Amy was forced to give fingerprints and a saliva swab to police. "Any person arrested is required to give both DNA and fingerprints," says a police spokeswoman.

Wonder what they found in her saliva? Half of London could probably smoke that sample and get high. Amy was released soon after, pending further investigation, and is due back for more questioning in early March.
