London, March 7 (ANI): Amy Winehouse is set to appear in court after being charged with common assault on a fan.

The Brit singer was said to have punched dancer Sherene Flash, 30, in the eye when asked for permission to take her picture at an End of Summer Ball in London last September.

The Rehab hitmaker, who just returned from her two-month break in the Caribbean, was recently taken into custody after attending Londons Charing Cross police station.

Amy, who failed to turn up on at the station for at least two previous occasions, was later released on bail.

She is now due to appear in court at City of Westminster Magistrates Court on March 17.

The 25-year-old, who vowed to kick her drug addiction and mend her boozy antics for a fresh start in 2009, allegedly sparked a new concern amongst family and friends who fear the stress could lead her back to drugs.

Amy is worried. But she is determined to get through it and sees the case as a hangover from her past, the Sun quoted a pal as saying. (ANI)
